This sounds interesting - do you have part numbers? assuming it was a mopar part, but google isn't getting me closer.

Sweet, new guy using the search function. Kudos to you, sir.

Use some high temp engine block paint and it won't burn off.

I may be slow, but did you put washers just under the front bolts?

Elsewhere it is mentioned to put washers under front 'and' rear. I just don't get raising the rear too.

This is absolutely true - and it helps to get it out of the middle of the damned windscreen. I don't see how people can stand to drive with it in the "normal" position.

It's not an issue of height or of you being short - it's an issue of it being in the middle of the windscreen and blocking the view.

Always good to hear about all the cool, inventive mods that are out there. I'll be trying some of these when my 2014 arrives.

Flipping the rearview mirror won't make any diff., when you have your windshield down !!

But what about the dim little "map lights" on my new rear view mirror? How will I ever look at my map with them pointed up??
