Been awhile since my last post and have done several things to the Beast (what my wife calls it) that I found on this site.

First was the sunroof drain issue - the grommet going through the floor on passenger side was 100% clogged and drivers side about 50% - found a link to a guy who posted a you tube on how to get to them and clip the tiny ends off - no more water on the passenger side floor!

Added LED interior lights - easy install and really lights up the inside at night.

Got the AppCar Diagnostic tool and cable - turned TPMS off, set the one touch lane change feature, tilt mirror in reverse and set proper tire size - cool tool - thanks to @Big Blue for the detailed instructions found on this site.

Had the geek squad replace the non working stereo head unit with a new JVC system.

Next up is cat back exhaust...suggestions??

Lastly I can now say I sure am glad I didn't buy this thing for fuel mileage!

I had the mirror tilt enabled on mine and it got so annoying that I had it turned off. Also it will wear out the mirror motor. What JVC head unit did you get? Does the factory backup camera work with it? And do the steering wheel controls work with it? I have the Magnaflow model #16665 cat back exhaust on mine and I love it. Not very loud when cruising, but it lets people know you are there when you hit the gas.

No problem @RobTag, glad it was helpful.

"cat back exhaust"


What is that? will it give it a growl?
A cat-back exhaust is one that replaces all of the components in the exhaust system after the catalytic converters on back to the tail pipe. As opposed to replacing just a muffler. Yes, depending on which system you use it can give a more aggressive sound.

jeep5253 JVC unit is KW V250 - needed an extra component to enable the steering wheel controls to work. The back up camera does work however the contrast is way too high making it not very usable.
