yeah I am. we got started a little bit today. this morning was some maintenance stuff and started the carrier in the evening. it will be quite a bit different than everyone else's but this is just trial and error. if it works great if not then oh we'll. I got all of my materials cheap!!

right now there is only two of us working on it but we have an awesome welder coming tomorrow so hopefully we get more finished with the extra hand.

my guess is 90-100% done by Sunday night

got more progress on the carrier today with some extra help and lots of thinking. all that's left to do is make an arm for the actual tire (and brace it) and then add my latch.

finished!! besides paint ha

tire will sit a little more straight after we adjust it but that's a minor detail.

more pics of the carrier at first I thought it would kill my clearance but it's not bad at all. the factory hitch still is the first thing to hit. need to adjust the tire just a little more but don't have a MIG welder to do so.

So I have decided that I will be covering my entire WJ with monstaliner.. I will be doing the bumpers/door cladding/ fender lines with black monstaliner and also the roof.. the rest of the dub will be with covered in "predator" monstaliner (Lime Green).. i think i will keep the hood stripes black and keep part of the grill black but the outer edge will be lime green.

Just do a monster energy full body wrap. Same colors and probably less prep.
