Matt's JK

Matt

As I've had the jeep for over a year now and desperate to get it off the road more, want to share the changes I'm making and get a bit of help along the way from the more experienced among you.

 

Started today. First time in 6 months that I've had any time to myself, so fitted rugged ridge hood latches that I've had since Xmas and took off my side steps.  A few photos included.

Thanks for the compliments, I do love the colour.  But agree, needs some more brown!

HI Matt, love the colour like everyone else. I am on the hunt for a great front bumper but cannot find one that I like yet - yours looks like just what I am after, without the winch - what is it?

 

Look forward to seeing more brown at Aldermaston.

Simon, front bumper is the AEV bumper without the hoop.

Yep, its the AEV one, with a 'delete plate" where the winch can fit if you want to plumb one in subsequently.  It looks quite stock as its flush with the fenders.

Thanks for confirming that. It is my favourite so far.

Thanks Matt, I do like it without the winch, it looks more original. I am also keen to maintain the fender line.

Got the rubicon rock sliders on today (thanks Alex and Kerry).  Whilst doing noticed a drip (water) coming  from a hose underneath the engine near the drive shaft.  Not really sure what it is - presume something to do with radiator.  Picture also attached, any ideas?

Sliders look good... glad you got them on okay!

 

The pipe will be your aircon condensation drip pipe... dont worry you don't have a "water leak"... if you have a water leak it will be very distinctive due to the coolant content.

I had a mysterious water drip around the bellhousing, turned out to be the drain pipe from the bulkhead grille!

Just remember the roof is hanging for the ceiling....

 

The number of times I have walked into my hard top whilst it’s been hanging in the garage

Right.  Looking for a bit of advice: my head unit is the one with the double din screen, bluetooth, hdd, but not sat nav. Its been alright, but I would like android play, better sound and dab+.

 

The Pioneer AVH 9100 looks pretty cool.  Any one got any experience of fitting / getting one fitted and tips, suggestions or things to avoid?

Matt,

 

there are are a couple of threads on the forum of JK’s with KENWOOD head units, DAB and sat nav, do a search on some of mine.

 

Dont know the Pioneer unit, but I currently have dab and Apple Car play, which works great.

Matt, Oddball installed a Pioneer head unit in his JK a while back. Have a look at his build thread

It's a really interesting and well written up build to read through even if it doesn't specifically help with your particular Pioneer unit.
