I'd like to see it with the olive interior. I've always loved green and tan as a combo.

Fire extinguisher and roll bar holder can be purchased on Amazon for $40. Get the AAA first aid kit while you're at it...$20. Also, pick up a 3 D cell mag lite and clips for $35. You can mount it on the side of your driver's seat.

I'm getting the Springtail tailgate table/Molle bag holder. Bought 5.11 Molle bags on Amazon too.

Compressor...Smittybuilt 5.65 CFM universal air compressor. Works quickly (I've still got the stock 32" Rubi tires) $150. I've got the Staun tire deflators $75 which work well too...just takes some time to dial in correctly.

You can make your own stubby antenna by cutting down your whip antenna. It's free if you have the tools. I painted mine to match my Jeep.

I went with the Trek Armor shade because it seems to block a little more sun and doesn't leave gaps where it attaches to the roll bars.

Congrats on your new BFF! I wish you many happy years of Jeeping!

Beyond that, there are hundreds of possible answers, with a group supporting each one of those choices. Location of camera. Quality of camera. Lines or no lines. Adjustable lines. Different views. Split screen (or not). Full kit or roll your own. It goes on and on.

Regardless, since you haven't actually ordered the HR yet, get your salesperson to write into your contract, that their service dept will activate feature code XAC for free.
So I'm ordering the 130 with the Hard Rock. Can the service department activate this XAC code from that since I'm going to install a 430 off eBay or do I need to buy the radio first?

Does anyone know when Rhino will be available for order? I understand it does not go into production until 12/14. I'm guessing November allocation?

He posted it a while back. I believe it's next Thursday 10/8. I'll be ordering one as soon as it opens.

Interesting. Not sure.

XAC code requires a headunit with an LCD display to actually work. I have no idea if their programming software does a compatibility/error check, and will not allow XAC to be activated if there isn't a display.

I would still see if you can get them to agree to activate XAC for free as part of your deal. It shouldn't matter to them if they do that extra work before or after delivery.
