Red, the seats are different. On his, he folds it forward and just pushes the bar down. The brackets on the seat pop out. Very simple.

I use to take the YJ's seat out too. I just haven't messed with this one, yet. I actually think leaving it in would make the box I build less likely to move around, depending on how I secure it.

Thanks for the compliment btw, I am quite the machine.

Will you actually need the seat ever? If not, I really would suggest bolting it down where the brackets are. It would be more secure and give you more room.

I use the seat everyday, taking the girls to school, but I won't need it for the trip. I'll look at it more this weekend.

No group, just me a buddy and his buddy. I've been in talks with meeting up with a local (JF member) for a day or two as well. My buddy lives near Denver and has been after me to come visit. He recently bought his first jeep, a 2006 LJ Rubicon, set up is similar to mine, it's even yellow. The opportunity to go out to his place, then Moab, presented itself, so I'm going....well as long as nothing screws up my plans.

Hopefully this is the start of an annual trip.

Harbor Freight for the saw. Should be cheap and good enough to do what you are doing.

Borrowing one from the father-in-law is even cheaper.

$40/sheet 3/4" plywood, say about 2 or 3 sheets, plus ~$10 for hinges, plus ~$10 for the lock, plus ~$50 for a decent circular saw (not HF) = ~$150 for a fancy shmancy new trunk.

3 sheets of plywood sitting out in the garage, bought and paid for. Not sure I'll need any hinges or locks. I'm going to borrow the saw = $150 to put towards a new CB.

Hey now... chalk that up to $200 in materials and tell the wife that you saved $200 on the Jeep so it gets to go back into the Jeep

Or better yet, tell her you saved $400 and you are going to spend $200 so both you and her make out better for your savvy.

Well she is out spending a couple hundred bucks on an outfit or two for a wedding she's going to, so it's my turn, right?

The CB set up is $218.00.

Still considering this one.



I don't need 5 mile coverage, I've read more good than bad about it, and all I really need it to do is hear the trail talk. I think this one will get that done. Besides, I can't find any place for a standard style CB.

I'm thinking I'll take a couple of photos....a couple of thousand.

Why would anyone want to go to Sterling?

I've been thinking about picking up that radio too. Most of your range is in your antenna setup anyways. CBs are limited to 4 watts of power as is.
TJs have pretty limited space for these things compared to a YJ and CJ. I really like this setup though and may go this route.
