Seat belt chime.

To turn off your seat belt chime if you want to have your seat belt off while off-road

DISCLAIMER: Always wear your seat belt, if you choose not to wear it please do it at your OWN risk.

Step 1: Insert key and turn to the ON postion.
Step 2: Wait until all the warning lights in the steering turn off.
Step 3: Quickly buckel and unbuckel your seat belt 3 times. Your seat belt should be buckeled when you finish.
Step 4: Turn Jeep off and your set.

Happy Trails

PostSubject: Soft Top Dampener   Wed 27 Feb 2008, 1:32 am

Ok so we all know how loud the soft top can be at high speeds with the windows down/off.
Well a cheap way to help quite it downis you can put a small Nerf football or basketball between it and the sound bar.

A cheap mod to do is rewire your side marker lights to flash with your turn signals. This is for a JK application. I`ll do a write-up soon with pics since I`ve already done this. It`s pretty easy and costs just a few bucks for materials. Stay tuned folks!

Well the flapping with the bikini top has been stopped. We tried Velcro first but when you take the top off the velcro comes off too, Bobby went a bought a small piece of 2inch foam from Walmart and cut it in 2 - 4inch long strips, we put one on each side in between the top bar and the bikini top, no flapping noise, and its easy to just slide it in after the bilini top is on. Cheap but it works.

For the taller folks with JK's - you can rotate the rear view mirror so it's upside down...it gives you about 3" more visibility - When it rotates the rearview mirror sits "higher". Every little bit helped for me!

for 4dr JK'ers...if you have a 4' Firestik II that you remove when not using it...you can place it right on the rear horizontal roll cage bar...the velcro tabs from the bar padding hold both ends of the antenna securely. Sits up and out of the way until you need it.

JK - Stuffed my garage door remote in the drivers side pillar so the button was exposed in the top hole. Kept it in place with a rag jammed behind it, then just slapped on the plastic pillar cover.

Drilled out a few new holes and notched the body so that I could rotate the antenna/mount - getting it out of the way of the pillar lights above.
