Overall I like them and think they add a nice touch to the Jeep

PS - Yes I know my Jeep is dirty and needs a good clean inside and out but it's rained literally every day here in Florida for the past week.
Do you think there is enough room to fit two of those small ones on the rear sills?

+1 on the Blackberry Pearl! To me it appears blue and perhaps purplish at some angles in the bright sun, more navy blue when viewed from other angles, with shimmers that reflect an array of complementary colors. As twilight approaches the blue deepens to a dark, dark navy blue, even black.

I am sorry they no longer offer this color.

You know I didn't even think about that but that might work. I think it'd be close because there isn't a whole lot of extra room to work with before the sill starts curving upwards in the rear. I do know I had plenty of room to move the plate around trying to find where it would look best and provide the best protection for people getting in and out.

True story, when I went to buy my Jeep my local dealer was trying to sell me on a Natural Green Overland spec'd out identical to mine, but then I saw a BBP Durango in the next row of the dealership lot and immediately fell in love with the color. I ended up driving down to a dealer in Melbourne, FL to find mine after my local dealer couldn't work out a dealer-dealer trade. Best decision I've made in a while. It's a shame the color wasn't offered for more year models because there is just so much complexity in the color it's amazing. It can look anywhere from a deep almost navy blue, to a dark dark purple color to nearly black.

In my 11' I think it sounds decent for a stock unit with moderate bass and good mids/highs. I find it is a lot less distracting to operate when driving than a touch screen.

Here are the steps I used to load the red light and speed camera locations into my Jeep's Garmin.

Step 1 - Download a "red light and speed camera" POI database file from the web. I downloaded the file from poi-factory.com but I am sure other websites have it as well. I know poi-factory updates their database regularly.
Step 2 Ė Using POI Loader from Garmin (Garmin: POI Loader) create the POI.gpi file from the database file you have gotten from the web or created
Step 3 Ė Save the POI.gpi file to your computer as a file
Step 4 Ė You will now need a USB Stick to load the custom POI to so that it can be loaded to the vehicle system. Create a folder on a blank USB stick entitled Garmin, example; if your USB Stick is listed as drive D by your computer, then the folder would be D:\Garmin
Step 5 Ė Create a folder within the Garmin folder named Poi, example; if your USB Stick is listed as drive D by your computer, then the folder would be D:\Garmin\Poi
Step 6 Ė Copy the POI.gpi file to the Garmin\Poi folder on the USB Stick, example; if your USB Stick is listed as drive D by your computer, then the file location would be D:\Garmin\Poi\POI.gpi
Step 7 Ė Insert the USB Stick to the radio and the Garmin navigation application will display a message that the custom POIs are ready to be copied, select yes.
Step 8 Ė To view the custom POI list select WhereTo, Extras, Custom POIs and you will see the list.

Re: Donít Forget the 2011s!

Still rocking my 2011 Limited. Just hit 90K on it over the weekend. Yes, 90! No major issues so far and hope it stays that way.

The ONLY problems I have had and elected to repair myself were:

1. Failed door lock actuator on passenger rear door @ 45K miles. ~$60
2. Failed AC dash vent (adjuster grenaded itself somehow) @30K miles
3. Failed passenger side blend door actuator @89K miles (actually the travel limit gear for it) ~$4
4. A few exterior bulbs out here and there, but I don't honestly label them a problem.
5. Rear liftgate water leak. Per TSB, resealed glass grommet.
6. Typical floorboard water sloshing sound..... discovered a floor pan grommet that wasn't removed during PDI.
7. Leaking front strut @64K miles. No charge for repair.

If memory serves me correctly, the above mentioned are the only issues I've encountered so far. All and all, the issues I have had with my Jeep have been very minimal to say the least and didn't hinder the drivability of it whatsoever. Would I buy another? Absolutely! Would it be a 2014? Doubtful from the headaches I see posted on here on a daily basis. I have to have my music. LOL

Did you do any brake work? Wondering how this new set up holds up in time.
