I'll take a photo -- but might not be able to get to that for a couple of days now.... it's just fiberglass window screen repair kit ($12 @ home depot) with some strip tape magnets ($8 @ home depot) on it in 'strategic' locations.

Again, I'll put up a photo - just won't get a chance until Thursday.

LED reverse lights - with the CREE lenses (bought on ebay for $25) & smitty built tail light guards. Passenger side with 'original' bulb to show the difference.

Finally decided on where my Rigid Industries light switches will go: Room for 4 switches here. I plan on having pillar lights and lightly 2 sets up top (I'm hoping to put a roof rack on). Oops.. forgot to put the under steering wheel panel back on prior to the photo.

Added a 3 port 12V outlet box above the mirror. It has 2 USB charging ports too. I do have the 430 nav head unit in the jeep, but I like the extra GPS running with a different zoom level - that way I can see 'possible' trails or areas of interest all around me. (there is a zip tie on it right now - holding it tight to the plastic trim until the double sided tape sets properly).

I've been 'camping' in the back of the jeep on my weekend get away excursions... I had a car tablet mount kicking around and decided it would work on the soft top bracket. Now I can watch movies when it's "bed time". Now playing: Big Trouble in Little China

Finally... waking up with the sun beating on a black jeep gets uncomfortable quick.. so window screens - magnet mounted on the outside.

That's it for today! It's been busy.
Planned: more lights, 3.5" lift, new tires & wheels (Worx "Triad" perhaps), roof rack, roof top tent and awning.
Do you have a link for the reverse lights? Also did you have to install a resistor for them ?

No link, sorry.. just search on ebay for 3147 CREE bulb (I think it's a 3147 type - or 3157). there seems to be 'different' (but really the same) ones come up on there all the time.

the buyer I found had a 'make an offer' button. $25 was accepted the next day. shipping was quick.

No resistor needed - but then, I haven't had a chance to look at them at night yet. There may be a soft glow from them when not activated (I'll check tonight) I know my interior LED's are like that when not on due to the CANBUS monitoring in the Jeep.

Last Thursday I drove 700 miles only to lock my keys in the Jeep. Of course, I had to do it when the hard top was on and it was 93 outside. Commented to my friend that we should have moved the Jeep into the garage first.
Fortunately, the keys were sitting on the passenger seat. Took the hinges off and pulled the door away (it wouldn't unlatch) and I was able to get the keys with a magnetic wand.

Last weekend I took it to Rausch for wheeling. First trip with the new lift and tires. VERY PLEASED 10/10 would do again. Ended up breaking some stuff such as the OEM steering stab, backed the upper rear bolts on my shock out, ripped a fender off, and now my rear diff is leaking. Some new parts in my near future. And yes I know I need a full size spare/remove the stock for now

My brand new 2013 JK got her first "mod" today. Smittybilt Rock Rails. The spending has begun! And since it isn't polite to post without pics, here they are.

The smittybilt badge is just applied with some double-sided tape. I removed mine as the last step of the install.

Yeah I saw that. Those sticker badges won't last long.
