I like the clean final results, great job.

I do electrical work my self, ever consider making it non battery operated and getting constant power?

Thanks.. I used to put the opener in the center console with my TJ until someone broke into it at the airport. The latch on the center consoles is just plastic, and I'm pretty sure the JKs aren't much different in terms of security.

Even when I replaced it with the Tuffy console, I found that I rarely locked it unless I was parking somewhere downtown. When it was parked in the driveway, I hardly ever locked it, and it would be easy for someone to open the soft top, and then have access to my garage.

The thought crossed my mind, but it didn't stay long enough to map it out :-) Please post up if you get the time to sketch it.

Thinkinging about constant power source so don't have to pull it apart to change battery when it dies... couldn't you simply add a resistor to a power source lead to step down the 12v to 9v (assuming the garage door opener is 9v battery operated) and connect to the 9v battery connector in the remote?

don't see why not... i suppose when this battery dies, I'll look at wiring it up to constant power.

Wow. I like this but maybe out of my capabilities. Good write up.
