What kind of bolts did you use to fasten your t-case skid plate?

6 1/2" carriage bolts across the front to the 2x4x1/4" cross member and 4 grade 5 bolts down the sides.

Figured strength in numbers across the front and carriage bolts make it nice and flush.

And the sides sit up out of the way so reg bolts work without having to worry about them catching on rocks.

You can see the front ones in the pick.

Thanks, that looks smooth. I didnt think much about keeping the bolts out of the way like you did, so im trying to decide what bolts to use that wont get sheared off by a rock. Did you build your to cover the transmission also?

Took the Jeep to S&K steel and picked up some remnants for my next projects.

Picked up some used steel for a couple more projects for the WJ.

I just read complete build thread, very nice. I really like the half doors. I would be very interested in front doors if you wanted to do them for me.

Thanks.

Shipping the doors would be a killer. Over $100 each to ship due to their size from Cal to DC. They aren't very heavy but bulky.


The last set I made was for a member (fosterjd79) in Mass. I was in Ohio and met up with him at the Bantam Jeep Festival In PA because it was to expensive to ship.

So after a few dent's in the rear QTR's and fenders as well as some broken taillight I finally got around to making some rear QTR protection with nudge bars and recessed LED tail lights.

I also built in a lockable compartment on the pass side. I made it as a remote power station and switches to turn the LED bars, side lights and BU lights. Also put in a cigaret lighter plug and the remote box for my power inverter. It has 2 110v and 2 USB receptacles. It has a switch to turn the inverter on and off from the remote box.

Started with remnant 10 gauge diamond plate, 24 riv-nuts, stainless hex cap screws and two harbor freight LED tail lights. Picked up a mailbox lock from Lowe's. I already had the toggle switches and pipe for the nudge bars.




Made some paper templates.





Cut the plate with the plasma and test fitted and adjusted as needed. I used a bottle jack, scrap metal 2x4 to put the bends in the plate.






Next was drilling holes and installing riv-nuts. I made my own riv-nut tool. I taped the plate to the jeep and drilled through the plate and fender at once.

Cut the metal for the recessed LED tail lights and tack welded them in.

























Cut and tack welded the fender pieces. The plate that is flat and facing out is scrap I had and is thicker than the 10 gauge. I had to cut reliefs in the curved bent part to get the bend right. Will fill them in when I weld them up.

All welded up and a coat of primmer.















Also hole was cut for door to access power outlets.



Made a box out of scrap sheet metal for the power outlets and switches. Spot welded it in and sealed around it with RTV.









Waiting to install.



Fitted on and LED's wired up. I tapped into the trailer harness after the relays to get the LED to work like trailer lights. That way I didn't need to make any new wiring for them. Also added red reflectors to help keep it legal. Might have to add a side marker light too.













Access door. Put the cigarette lighter plug in. Will do switches and power outlets later.

Cut and bent the tube then welded it on. Primed the tube and put the panels on the Jeep.























Here is the little power panel. The 3 switches are to turn on the LED bars, side roof rack lights and back up lights. Any or all can be turned on without starting or getting into the Jeep. The Cig lighter is always hot and the 120v/USB box is turned on/off by the switch on the box. Also added a mailbox lock to keep it secure.







A view from the back. LED's off, park, brake and vid of hazards.







Below is a video.
