Nice, I need a high lift added to my accessories. It looks like your Jeep had a Merry Christmas.

Just wanted to say I love the way you built this. Love the color.

I want to do the wrangler style lights too but afraid I'll take them off in the trails around here. I've already been through a few door mirrors on each side

Thanks bud.
Theres a few, but i think this one has the best instructions on the actual breakdown and placing of the mesh. I used a different mesh screen and rtv silicon instead of hot glue, but the rest is the same.

Wow, that looks a lot easier than I was expecting it to be. Thanks!

By the way, What did you end up doing with your spare tire and all your other goodies that were on your roof. Did you end up making that spare tire attachment to your rear bumper? I had a roof rack for mine for awhile but got tired of it rattling so much so I sold it. Did your stuff rattle at all with it just attached to the cross bars on your roof?

The spare went back in cargo area for now, as i havent had any time to start making the tire carrier yet. The new 54" jack is under the rear seat, and i have a new collapsable shovel under there too.
The rack always rattles, even now, but it was definitely worse with the tire on the roof.

Finished my rocklights, and cleaned up under the rear end. I also got 2 of my 3 missing cladding pieces painted and installed.

Looks awesome man! I like how you mounted your Cb. I got a 96 zj that I'm just starting to work on, how easy was it to run that extra socket like that? I've seen them pretty cheap at Autozone and stuff but I wasn't sure how hard it was to run the wiring.
