Throw up some pics of your radar detector mount, would love to see it.

Here are the pics of the blendmount and 9500ix in my 2010.
Had to slightly trim the release lever to fit under the auto headlight housing but it was a very easy modification with a bench grinder and file. The mirror tap was easy as pie also. Used a multimeter to locate a hot wire when the ignition is on (I believe was pink with a white stripe) and using the black wire as a ground. Mount was easy to install, just slide the mirror off the windshield and unplug it rather than working over your head and in a tight spot. Test the mirror plug and install the mirror tap with the plug hanging free and no mirror in the way. Re-install the mirror to the windshield, plug in the harness, aim the radar, tighten all connections then plug in the detector and enjoy. 1 hour would be a generous guess of install time.




Love the blendmount. Looks very clean and hard to tell there's a detector in there through the windshield.

Honestly out here in rural Alberta they don't really tend to use laser a whole lot. For the amount I drive the Jeep on average I didn't think they were worth the investment up front or I would have went the 9500ci route for a super clean install. I imagine if I get hammered by a laser ticket once and I'll couple some ZR4's to her.

Oh fair enough, definitely not worth the large investment if they don't utilize lasers up there. ZR4's are definitely on my to buy list.
