Thanks for the great idea Alex!!
When you paint them make sure to do more than one coat of blue.

Sorry its taken a while for me to get back to you, but my buddy for some reason will not text me a pic of his doors. But he just used a washer and a bolt. Welded the washer so it lined up with the latchy thing on the body and then used the bolt as the locking part and did welds on the bottom of the bolt so it didnt just fall out. If that doesnt make any sense let me know and I can try to clear it up. And Ill keep bugging him for a pic haha

How did they do it in the fab thread?

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

2 in receiver and make it adjustable. But I feel as though that will rattle. I don't want any rattle.

Yes, it would rattle, but you can fix that. All you have to do is run a weld bead along the surface of the hitch, the portion that enters the receiver. This acts as a filler, making a tight fit. You would have to grind the weld to the right dimension, test fit, grind, etc, as it doesn't take much weld to make it tight. It will not rattle at all. Easy to do with great results.

Haven't had any time to work. But I will send out to blast this week hopefully but I did build tube door for my JK and here are those and some "wheelin" pics for your own amusement on what I call wheelin.
And I wanna cut my front bumper to make it a stubby bumper but my mom won't let me. And my dad likes the idea. Guess I will have to wait.

Just dive the CJ up an obstacle, then get out, walk to the JK, and try it with the JK.

When the JK fails, get out, walk back to the CJ with a tow strap and yank the JK up that dirty ol obstacle.

Cheers!
