If you don't mind trashing the OEM Limited grill inserts, you can simply take a pair of dykes or shears and cut the slats out. You can then get your hand behind each insert to release the clips. ...

Re: Overland vs Limited Dilemma

I totally agree. I almost bought the Overland, but didn't like the wood wheel, and the fact that the dash "open pore" wood was different than the steering wheel's glossy wood. Got the Limited with...

Re: Backup camera video

Mine was fine, until I installed 13.48.3. Now I too have the "jerky camera". Hopefully, it will be corrected in the next firmware release.
