I've been looking at that and it shouldn't be toooooo difficult to do but I'll have to get with you designer type guys to smooth out my idea.


AAAAND. In order to get the seats in and harnesses all set where they should be I had to move the extinguisher......(wow Tim, you had to move something? Gee.)


But here is how the seat harnesses were connected everywhere. No the seats aren't designed for 5 point so the submarine straps suck.


I had actually forgotten that the inside straps needed somewhere to connect......DUHHHHH!


And the shoulder straps needed to be at the right height so this was the plan there. I need something to keep them from sliding on the bar. I'll put something on there soon.


And a grab handle for OH ****!! ****uations and getting in and out easier.


And it looks about like this....


And then I took it muddin'

Got the recall for the e-brake taken care of at the dealer the other day. Can't believe all the PO's never had it done.

The recall on the e brake. There is a weak part of it that will cause it to randomly release. Just call a dealer and tell them you want to have the recall fixed. The dealer will run the vin and be able to tell if it has been done. Got mine done about a year ago when I bought this one. It took them an hour to do it.

1995 YJ. 2 inch BDS Spring lift. 1 inch shackle lift. 1.25 inch JKS Body Lift 33x12.5x15's. Engo 10,000 pound winch.

Oh that's funny. Its popped out on me a couple times where I woke up with my Jeep in the middle of the street. I thought it was just due to the age of the Jeep. That's good to know! Gonna get that done asap

Smashed my diff into my gas tank skid plate. Stupid rear stretch is getting complicated to maintain. Now my tie rods are shot up front so problems on both ends before I even shifted the transfer case this morning.

Could just let it keep smashing into it. Will eventually probably put a dent in the skid and create its own clearance

There is a gas tank in there! I have a buddy of mine selling his 20 gallon gen right tank and skid so maybe I'll make room for that.

I wheeled the hell out of my YJ today. And I only busted the wires off my front axle. It was a good day!

Went playing and dirtied it up. Reminisced on the CJ in the backyard. Friend helped open it up and this is the Jeep that saved my butt a time ago

You can also get on Jeep.com and enter your vin to see if there are any open recalls, thats what I did.
