I've done a few jobs on the Jeep recently.

I've fitted a reverse camera and 4 channel screen. Mainly for one man hitching of my trailer. The extra channels are handy for the cameras in and on the trailer itself.

I have our caravan wired the same way too. Just got to add another 13 pin socket on the rear of the Jeep.

I've swapped the driver's door mirror glass as the auto dimming part has gone funny. Seems to be liquid in it?

I've swapped the stereo for a modern Bluetooth setup so means I have handsfree now which is useful.

Lastly I've fitted new struts on the tailgate glass as the others were very weak.

A stainless exhaust is next on the list when it arrives. :D

Good shout on replacing the door mirror glass Chris, from what i understand it's a common fault. Basically they're liquid crystal switchable tinits, a bit like an auto-darkening welding helmet but not as dark. You can buy the film on fleabay :

That's the sort of idea it works on anyway.

Looking good all round though! :wink: :D
Cheers,
