Woo! Recently I replaced my soft top that was tearing at the seams with a Bikini/Windjammer/Deck Cover combo (I always loved the 'mini truck' look on Jeeps). I also replaced my 21 year old rusted-to-hell exhaust pipe, cat converter, and muffler with a magnaflow and stainless steel banks muffler. Last night I upgraded my stereo with a JVC KD-X50BT

The exhaust system is fantastic! Never knew my Jeep could be so quiet!
I also can't wait to install the two-compartment Tuffy Overhead Console. It will be nice to be able to see the stereo and keep the road in my peripheral vision instead of having to look down at my console.

And yeah where it's at now it doesn't move at all. I don't have a tire on it or a latch on the open side but I went wheeling last night and it stayed in place. It's solid I just have to make it swing

If you're talking about the seats then, yea I guess I did get lucky. The seat belts just needed to be in bolted... Oh wait do you mean that stupid thing at the top shoulder of the seat thats like a circle, holding the belt when you flip the seat? Yes haha I made sure I found ones w/o it lol

http://www.hooverfence.com/ornamenta...ing-hinges.htm is what I was thinking of, you can prolly find one that's cheaper, but these are heavy duty, built for vehicle applications. You could easily cut the PS bar to fit the hinge, some welding will probably be needed.

http://www.diamondtool.net/p/truck-a...-4-12-yellow-z is the pin I was talking about, you can easily add a wire to it connecting to the body of the jeep, so you don't loose it when you take it out. A simple drilled hole on the DS to accept the pin through the bar and mount so it just slides in and out is all you need here, the cotter pin will hold it in place on the bottom if you can make that happen, but if not, I don't think the cotter pin is absolutely necessary.

Not a bad idea I think I'm going to look into that some more and see what I can find! Thanks for the help!

Yeah I went to far left and coming back down my right rear tire went back up on the wall and put me over it was a really light roll

It had 110 inch wheel base linked front and rear this picture does not give this climb justice I had my winch cable around my front axle trying to keep the front end on the ground
