I used them on my TJ and loved them. The stockers were plastic and these were metal. Only problem was I had to drill two of them out because the holes didn't line up properly. But that was on a TJ.

Here's what I did to my JK today

Replaced the carpet with the Mopar rubber liner...

Put 1" pipe insulation in the gap between the top of the dash and windshield to prevent items from falling into it...

I broke the rear sway bar bracket off. I didn't think I was putting it in that much of a bind. I think it was a weak weld.

Mine broke with less than 2000 miles the first time I had it offroad with minimal stress. And when I brought it in to get fixed, there was another one right next to me with the same issue. I think it's just a poor build item for a lot of them.

I installed mine the other day. The rear area around tailgate latch is REALLY tough to get on, I tried stretching and pulling but left it to wait for it to heat up on a hot day so it would stretch a little easier so I wouldn't rip it.

All in all i'm happy, just a little louder in the back, but no more smelly, dirty carpet

I just spent a bunch 'o money....



for the complete Raingler kit




I needed something to secure the freedom top panels onto (in the rear) plus a great place to stow my laptop (in the upper cargo area) and the mac daddy divider piece to keep gear and dog safely in the back!



I compared for a few weeks the differences between the various netting manufacturers..... We'll see how it looks. Photo's hopefully by Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



(is it wednesday yet?)
