Good for you. Heard your hookup on parts flaked. What a jerk.

Mine isn't anything that snazzy though it looks more important than it is. Its nothing more than a water bottle with a hole drilled in the bottom for the windshield washer motor to spray me with some mist when it gets hot. However with the air hose being stored in its vicinity its quite formidable looking as far as difficult or important mods go.

Same thing I thought yesterday evening whilst finishing up my light hoop and the hoop for the JK I made it look pretty-ish with the metal bondo stuff and a couple coats of filler/primer.

Unfortunately the Rustoleum bedliner spray seriously sucks. Ruined the look, I was going for a textured rubber but it ended up looking horrible.

Today/tomorrow I'll get more filler/primer, and use spray-on Plastidip instead.

We all know you put that thing in there to put out the fire from your junk overheating on the trail

All about that unibody life.

On a serious note: I have seen very intricate fire extinguishing systems plumbed that way but I wouldn't know where to get the retardant unless I just plumbed straight hoses to an existing extinguisher.

I was able to cut out the rotted out frame today, and welded in a new piece of 2x4 box. The new piece was small enough to slip into the existing frame rail and then I added a couple doublers to reinforce the welds.

It was actually a lot of fun!
