The quick 101 on the install.

the hardest part was taking off the center console (at mirror). I had to grab the portion nearest the windshield, pry the plastic down and just keep pulling. eventually it pops off. makes a loud sound, i thought i broke the freaking thing.

pull the 16 pin conductor off the center console. i used the bottom left (i cant remember the color) and criped the radar dector wire to the entry wire into the 16 pin harness.

there is a screw in the center of the console after you remove the plastic that goes into the roof of the jeep. i used that for the ground.

turned power on radar, mounted radar, then finsihed.

i should have taken pictures but didnt think about it until i was finished.

Well, my tongue was firmly in cheek. Yet, junkies there do steal almost anything short of used kleenex tissues. I've lost two prescription glasses and a set of car radio knobs from break-ins, plus a hood ornament pried off and a stolen car. If the wire's copper, they'd probably take it!:rolleyes:

That's part of why we live happily in the boonies now, Jeep and all.

I used a 12" Invisicord and it was the best $16 I've spent in a while. No deconstruction and no tapping into wires. I was going to make my own but the pins on the mirror connector need the thin, flat tab and I didn't have any connectors handy. I tried to use a cord I made with a paperclip end soldered on but it was too thick for this connector.

I use a V1 but here's a pic with the Escort.

looks good. I got mine tapped into rearview mirror on my WJ and have it on the passenger side. I wish I woulda gotten the invisicord like mjw930, but I ended up splicing into the wires

When I had my Jeep, I tapped it into my D/C outlet that shuts off whenever the car is off.
