    The 3.6 in my JK was relatively bulletproof. That coupled with the fact that the 3.6 is used in virtually every Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep platform made me choose it again. If it wasn't reliable I figure that they wouldn't put it in everything they build. Parts are easy to come by. Bugs have been ironed out. Etc. I'm extremely happy with it, particularly with the 8-speed.

    I probably should have taken a couple more photos of the grill during inatall. There are two aftermarket Mopar grills for the JL. One is for the sport models that do not have headlight bezel inserts, removable body color surrounds or the mesh inserts. This one is marketed for the Sahara and Rubicon models. The body colored surrounds from the stock grill snap onto the side and bottom edges of this grill. The pre-installed headlight bezels and mesh inserts are satin black rather than Sahara silver or Rubicon gray. Just like the stock Sahara / Rubicon grills, the bezels and the mesh pieces can be removed if desired, for painting Etc.

    So I'm constantly plagued by the fob opening in my pocket and sticking me. Either that or it opens and gets stuck in my pocket. The size has never really bothered me, but it just doesn't want to stay closed.

    When I saw these offered by Gibson Leatherworks I thought I'd give them a shot. Fit and finish is awesome. Black with red stitching matches my seats, while the tan just looks classic. The black one is carabiner style, while the tan has a belt clip. As I've got two fobs, I figured I'd just get one of each.

    It really was a great family adventure. I kinda felt like Clark Griswold.

    Installed the Mopar all weather floor mats. No real reason to detail the install as you can see excellent documentation here:

    https://jlwrangler.com/showthread.ph...t-Installation

    However, there has been a change to the floor mats since Eddie's video and write-up. A small foam rubber gasket has been added to the ports to help minimize intrusion of water or debris into the cabin.

    Original design:

    Current design:

    Also when I installed mine, there was an audible click when I pushed them through the tub drain hole, compressing the foam gasket and securing them in place. Here's some pics, including Easter eggs.

    Someone with photoshop skills should put the headlight bezel and area around honeycomb Mojito. I bet it would look good.

    The attachment point is still available. I guess your key would be dangling though.
