    Default Habitat Owner's Thread

    By popular demand, it seemed to make sense to start an owner's thread for the AT Habitat that is separate from the release thread, so here it is. May the fun begin!

    A few photos from our shake down cruise across Nevada over the Winter Holidays. We got ahead of the storm but the weather stayed crazy cold for the trip.
    Too cold for humans to enjoy but the little husky loved it.

    I would like to know about the third brake light as well. Is it an enclosure the you picked up somewhere?
    My J30 should be here next week and I'm playing with ideas for the brake light. I relocated mine behind the spare but the trasharoo bag covers it.

    And what are your thoughts on the A/T gear rack? Is it worth the steep price? Easily adjustable? I could have my buddy build a rack for less, but I don't mind paying more if it is really worth it...?

    I spent all morning cleaning the inside of my Jeep after AT got done with the "repairs" to the crappy texture job the painter did. They didn't take the top off to sand it down and that fiber material DUST was everywhere. Clean now and ready for a trip... If I had the time. Two of my kids are getting married within the next 6 weeks.

    Ditto on the brake light being covered if one desires to use something like the Trasharoo. I have the little AEV light which is anemic at best. This light just seems to peek through the AEV tire carrier setup just right and doesn't require drilling into the top as I was initially thinking I might do with a recessed light. A little pricey but what else is new and it is quite functional. I tapped wiring from the right rear tail light easy enough.

    The rack is adjustable several inches vertically and a few inches horizontally. I have mine low enough to just clear the fridge case without rubbing it and pushed forward to just touch the back of the small rear seat headrest but not interfere with the seat back. Mount system is top notch and utilizes the existing cutouts in the zippered rollbar covers and does not require modifying anything. Build quality, functionality, and finish made the rack worth the cost for my needs and I was not disappointed in what I found when I opened the package and completed the install. It's well executed in my opinion. I suspect a gear review might appear in OJ one of these days.

    Fair enough, that's the kind of review I was looking for. Thanks! Sounds like it may be worth coughing up the money for the AT rack then.
