Yeah I remember that thing, TNT long arms, and a bunch of other stuff but if I recall he never reinforced the frame.

I kinda like Grand Chericon

i dont see at all how any of you come up with any part of "rubicon" being used to name it afterwords.

if anything, its a grand comanche...

The custom cage was very helpful it is attached to the roof. I also mounted the D pillar onto the C pillar to help as well. I have been really happy with it. I fabbed a soft top, but it is tall. At some point I will pay to have one done right. I did make a lexan rear window that connects to the cage. Helps with rain and warmth. Nothing better than putting the back seat down and resting it on the bottom of the rear seat so Its like a recliner and enjoying some ice cream with the wife and have everyone look at you like your crazy. I would suggest checking state laws though. I had a mess since Missouri requires all windows that came with it to still be in it. The converted soft top was how I got around it. Since the soft top has DOT approved windows. It really does just come down to a sawzaw and about a day of converting things and moving wires.

I know some one around the forum has one like that with a Zebra paint job. I swear EVERY TIME I google Jeep pics, It shows up.

Please allow me to adjust my pants. So that I may dance the good time dance.
And put the onlookers and innocent bystanders into a trance.

Not digging the "hacked up" look at all. One of our local guys did this to his 4runner. It was professionally done, but every time I see it I think what a tard.

Don't fear the regear.

Finished 4x2 --> 4x4 conversion.

I really don't see the point of this. It may look nice, but it serves no function. Worst of all, it takes away function. It doesn't save weight. Yeah, you are removing a couple hundred pounds of glass and metal, but your adding at least twice that in bracing and roll cage. If your camping in a ZJ, you can always sleep in the back if it gets to wet, or if you just need to take a brake. With a conversion like this, not only can't you do that, but you don't even have the space to pack camping gear. You'd be better off finding a way to remove the rear and side glass. That would open her up and save on weight, without sacrificing the unit body strength.
