Have to look into the side boxes as speaker boxes as I have weather proof speakers I am using so not sure how going to work that.
Front. I have auto trans so I have some extra room there.

Here is the cup holder I found. Adjustable too. I think the brand is Spill Master

I guess I could just bolt tabs to the mounting bracket.

Whats the hose underneath your ammo box for? Is it to keep it from rattling? Or does it come from your exhaust?

earlier he said he used the hose to keep the box from rattling...so it's just a pad.

You probably wouldn't want something breathing in the cab anyway.
(EDIT: Except for the passengers of course)

thought i'd add a couple things for those without welders and torches and tube benders. i flat fendered my jeep and made rocker guards, only tools you'll really need are a drill, grinder, sawzall, and a socket set.
fenders are just cut, the rockers are the stock front bumper cut down the long way and bolted in, a good way to save $250 for important protection.

It's the fender flare. I looked at it too. Twice.

Great White, how'd you decide how much to chop off the back edge of the flare? I'm looking to do the same thing, but I wanted to see how someone else did it first.

I knew there was something missing. I was never really good at "which one of these is different" games. There was always too many options!!!!

i am assuming you mean the back bottom of the front fender flares. i'm actually not done yet with what i want to do, mostly because i wanna find the right glue to us eto hold the bottom of the flare to the tub. in this picture below you can see three of the bolts that hold the flare to the tub, i'm gonna make my flares into a point at the end, but i'll be cutting off those visible bolts an dthat extra inner flare, i'll take pictures of it soon when i do it if i find a good glue/cement/silicone/something.



mind you, cutting that crap bottom part of the flare off is a bit mor epain in the *** then it looks, there are 2 rediculous metal brackets that i grinded off, which was a bit of a pain, and i sliced into my tub a bit, but some cleaning, rust removing, and painting made it look nice again, here's the metal bracket things i mean.
