That is a good idea. I'm going to do that as well.Took my factory jack out of the Jeep to make sure it functioned. Glad I did, it was very hard to operate. It was a chore to even get it out of the Jeep because I could not get it loosened up and retracted enough to remove it. Ended up lubing it up a bit and running it up and down until it could be operated by hand when it wasn’t under load. I even put it under the rear axle and operated it up and down. It would have been very frustrating to learn that it wasn’t working properly on the side of the road with a flat.
Looks good. Where did you get it if you don't mind me asking? I would like to do something similar.
After install, I couldn’t get it connect. Went to the website and they had a video to walk you thru It. I have a craftsman unit also. Not sure what model I have, check the website for a compatible chart. If you have a car that uses a home link, I would think it would work.Can you tell me more about that homelink and programming it? I have a Sears Craftsman 41A4315-7D garage door opener and I am trying to find out if it is compatible with the homelink system.
Did you use decals for all of the chrome? Where did you get those? I used a paint pen for the horizontal trim parts between the buttons, but I was hesitant to do the same for the knobs.
I didn't. Everything except for the white ring was painted. The decal was just temporary. It's just a cutout from some automotive vinyl wrap. I tried using it for those little chrome strips between the buttons, but it was a pain in the ass. Gave up and just used painter's tape to mask off everything. Then scuffed the chrome with some fine grit paper (3000-5000, I think). Then hit it all with a few light coats of spray paint.Did you use decals for all of the chrome? Where did you get those?
