I was just looking at the back end of my roll bar today thinking something very similar come spring time. Looking nice.

Soon yes, prob in a month or so. Just waiting for warmer temps so I can paint it right after mocking it up so it can be done in one shot..

Thanks man. Still surprised I hit/scrape it so often, can't imagine what the stock shovel would look like at this rate. UA is taking some hits but doing it what its supposed to.

Just saw you got a new rig! Wasn't feeling the JK? Either way LJ is a great choice!

No I was stupid and traded in my beautiful Rubicon for a sports car. Should have listened to the wife. She hated it from the get go. Sometimes the wife knows best I suppose. The LJ is a dream come true though. Never thought I would find one this nice in white and local. It was literally 2 miles away!

Swapped out the old beat up and rusted out windshield frame for another in mint condition. Plan to make some quick disconnects, so I can remove it for trips that I'll be running the hard trails, where damage is likely.



And got the cage all welded up. Paint to come this week.

At this point no. Wasn't happy with how I cut them and the horizontal C to B was higher than I liked. Will get some more tube and do it right, so I'm happy. That can be added at any time, whenever I feel like getting around to it, just glad to have the bulk of the cage done for now..

My plan is to incorporate a rack off those bars, to hold a couple action packers and a cooler and I'd like to get it down a bit more flush with the tub rail, otherwise prob would have just thrown it together.

In the near future, I'll prob put in an order to get enough tube to finish the rear and some more for A to B below the door and across the tub for seat mounts as well.

May? Need to check the schedule. Also, got to talk to my buddy about the regear. Depending on whether he can get to it soon or not may put me down a bit longer. If he can't start soon, I may just push it off til the end of the year..

You planning on the F&F weekend late June? Thats the place to be!
