kali_jeep used the Jeep to record some dash cam footage using 2 different action cameras (not your best option, but if you don't have a dedicated dash cam, these could help, for that time ----> just in case...)

Dragon Touch Vision 3 Action Camera, Used as a Dash Cam. You be the Judge...

AKASO EK7000 Action Camera - Dash Cam Test (Accident Aftermath Inside)

If you would like more info on the cameras and some links, go to my YouTube Channel and you can find all of it in the description for both videos...

kali_jeep did one of the emblems on my jeep, first for me so it was a practice/learning run with plasti dip --- got dark pretty quick so still will need to nit-pick the insides a little tomorrow

kali_jeep getting close to having the gasket done on the jeep and will need brakes soon as well so most likely will do it at the same time, other then that a few things here and there need fixing, visor clip, headliner, headlamps... but nothing too crazy!

kali_jeep have been slacking a bit with the jeep, but finally after getting hit in the head way too many times by the lift gate, finally replaced the lift supports with a set from ebay, awesome upgrade/fix for under $25

How do you like the kenwood? I recently bought an alpine CDE-145BT and im very happy with it it completely changed the way my stereo sounded.
i have not even yet seen what it looks like on the passenger side, hope all the problems are just on the driver side and i can get them all done at once.

the HD unit is great, way more then what i was aspecting for the price, the only problem now, the speakers are so far behind i 100% am getting new speakers, for front and rear - but one thing at a time, need the jeep all fixed up mechanically before i dig into the extra stuff...
