    Installing backup camera

    It's all in the settings on a dash cam. Most you can set to loop when out of space, meaning it will overwrite the oldest file. Should also be able to set the rear camera to record, but then it'll use more space on the SD. I run dash cameras down here in S. FL, as I have been hit and run 3...

    Won't Go Into 4-Lo Unless Pointed Downhill

    2 inch lift on suspension shouldn't affect the shifter... 2 inch body lift will. I agree about the slight roll, just needs to be under 5MPH, either direction works on mine if it wants to be stubborn.

    Favorite rock rails / steps and why? (for a 2006 TJ)

    Hmm... maybe that the manufacturer has for decades engineered sliders/rail Mounting that Should meet your approval, and how well that mounting system works.

    All AMC picture of the year

    That’s not bad at all! The other option I’ve been looking at, is Cerakote.

    Would it be odd if I added hood / bonnet decals?

    I guess ya’ll down under are needing to find things to do... lots of OZ is locking down again... limiting you to a 15 mile radius from your house...

    Favorite rock rails / steps and why? (for a 2006 TJ)

    Even on the JT/JL the Rubicon rails are only installed on the body. There are numerous reports on trail use on these, and everywhere I look on these, the only 2 things to improve them, is rocker armor to prevent deflection on severe drops, and a side bar to keep the side of Jeep further from...

    Thoughts on Cerakote

    It’s really not too bad, the C-Series Air-Dry is ~$350/gallon. Coverage is supposed to be good, covering ~1000 sqft per gallon. Plus, prep is sandblasted and degreased surface.

    Thoughts on Cerakote

    Does anyone have experience using Cerakote? Thinking maybe it’d be good to use for wheels, bumpers, body armor, etc... maybe even chip resistant coating for axles, frame...

    XJ questions

    ‘89 and ‘90 models still used AMC high nickel blocks, so can take a lot of miles before wearing. Bar pin bolts on rear shocks. Front end is same as TJ.

    Would it be odd if I added hood / bonnet decals?

    Touch screen advantage, such as iPad... you can snap photo and immediately post... no need to snap photo, run to walgreens to process film, scan, then upload. (Says this looking at Kodak Brownie with t-max film almost ready to process...)

    Would it be odd if I added hood / bonnet decals?

    Maybe a charcoal with silver outline “wrangler”on the hood

    Would it be odd if I added hood / bonnet decals?

    I think you need Black wheels, and smoke covers on lights to continue the look... lol

    Had to go to the dark side

    The Sarge green is going on the '21 model year JT's as well... I'm happy with my 1/2 year Gator green, but if I ever had to replace, it'd need to be Sarge.

    Is it common to have this many wheel weights?

    How is that even acceptable? I had a nail in a tire on my GMC canyon when it went in for service. They needed to break the bead to see if it had gone though, which it didn't. Not only did they scrape and ding up the rim (looked like they used a screwdriver to pry off the weights) they left...

    Suspension refresh

    I'm torn on Hard Rock... it's 4 hours north for me, and all the videos I see of it makes it seem like its just a hilly mud fest.
