A little sun blocker thing that comes off the side like for RVs

A decent cab only hardtop with provisions for both style roll bars to somehow pass through.

The rear bulkhead extending down to the floor, with a lockable sliding door to reach items stored in the bed so a duster could also be used if desired.

I'd personally prefer sheet metal, to keep the weight down. Nice if it could work with half & full doors too.

All this for a reasonable price. You did say dream items were allowed!


I'm also trying to find a 6 into 2 header, that will work in a 1990 4.2L YJ.
I want to run a dual exhaust. Sub $250.00 would make it fit my budget.

Engine conversion kits. Sort of like what novak-adapt.com has. It'd be nice to see a few pages dedicated to those and might get some more people interested in a motor swap when they know that novak has turnkey power-trains and stuff.

Doesn't Clifford make a 6 into 2 header for the 4.2 for about $275? If I ever get an exhaust manifold leak I'm getting one for my 4.0.

Eta: they're ~$360

You wouldn't happen to have a link, googling Clifford Exhaust didn't turn up a company website?

I wish there were two independant rear jump seats that collapse and pivot up and out of the way to rest flat on the top of the interior of the rear fenders. Hard to explain but I can see it in my head, it would give you a two-seater with full flat back (no floor brackets) and still have a way to drop a seat down in a hurry to get a third and fourth person around town.

sun visors that swing to the side like in every other car would be great.

when we stop on the trail we usually position 2-3 jeeps and arrange a tarp with bungees for a lunch shade.

New fuel lines for the 4.0, OEM style. a better transmission mount set up, that plate is a weak point. All the above ideas are good too.

A bolt on cow stop. Not that I drive on a lot of 19th century train tracks, but when the zombie apocalypse comes, it'd be a nice feature. Also, a flamethrower.

I don't know if you know about this but there is seats like that but it may not be what you are thinking but close enough,

Split Fold & Tumble Rear Bench Seats
