End of summer Update

Well I've been pretty busy this summer and just wanted to update what I have done because I haven't posted in a long while.
I had most recently posted about my tire carrier and roof rack rebuild. And I finally finished both of those projects. I have also just add front bumper fog lights. And I just got her back from the Dealership, which fixed the rear main seal leak and the rear output shaft bearing assembly due to leaking.
Other then that I had just cleaned her up really well for the summer by rust proofing underneath as well as a good polish and wax. I have also rebuilt my storage toolbox and a adding a subwoofer box to that as well.
Any questions about the roof rack and tire carrier just ask.

Ok here are some pics. Sorry the subwoofer box is in the process of being glued together so I only put the face piece in to show how it fits.
The storage box has a 20" drawer in with a slotted foam part for my tools and a rubber mat for my screwdrivers and sockets.
It also has a front cubby for my tire iron and room behind the drawer for my liquids and things. The storage box is covered with the same carpet from the back of a scrapped zj and the sub box will be covered in a vinyl to match the plastic interior.

Awesome. Can i replacate in my wifes zj if she oks it? We just relocated the spare to the roof for more room. Three kids and lots of stuff to go with them so this would for sure retain alot of that space.

Yea go ahead I based mine off of things I found on google and regular drawers. It's a real simple project just make sure you anchor it down somehow so it doesn't become a projectile in an accident.

Ok here is the finished sub box. I covered it with the privacy pull cover material cause I hated that thing anyway and there was enough material to cover the drawer lid too. I also added a kill switch to my aux lights panel on the dash so I can turn off my subwoofer amp. SO for those who wanted to see here it is.

Very nice result. I really like both boxes, if I had the room I would copy but I need the spare in the back (dont wanna put it on the roof). A lil CC though, might wanna round up that mesh, I think it would finish it off great.

Nice work man!

That's what I wanted to do to with the mesh but it's tough stuff to work with so I figured keep it simple till I find something else to work with cause I finished the box two days before I leave for college so time was an issue.
