Made my front and rear bumpers from reading the fabrication section. Also made my beadlocks from a DIY kit. Made the black panels on the rockers to cover some old holes in the body. It's just thin diamond plate, I'll make sliders next to actually protect the sides.

I used the center console as a way of concealing a marine sub and amp. I will have to post pics of it, you don't even know its there unless you look underneath and see the wires running to the engine bay.

Btw, i used a "Concept 8" sub and amp" combo they are about $100 bucks on ebay.

I made this cargo basket and bolted it to the lid of the Tuffy Security trunk (it has since been painted black):

I also made this front bumper:

Made the rear bumper w/swingout but I don't have a good pic of it.

Made these rockers and am currently making a set for my current jeep:

Also lots of bumpers and a cage or two.

Should be pretty bullet proof. Would take at least a hacksaw, a pry bar or a pretty determined thief to get it out. But with the key the whole thing pops right out with no tools. BTW, I got a set of 8 padlocks all keyed alike.

I have to take the mount back out to paint it and herc the tub. After that I will put the bolts back in with red locktite.

I have the same idea for some fenderwell boxes, but have not put them in yet.


prototype here:

I see no reason to paint it. Maybe I'll paint the rest to match.

Also put one under the hood, on the old jack mount. Just used wingnuts here cuz I have a hood lock.

They will steal anything not nailed down in San Diego, so storage is a big deal. Not only did some low life steal the change out of my ashtray, they took the whole ashtray.
