Just watch out with compartmentalizing the box. Makes it harder to store the maximum amount of stuff. I have a big box in my heep and I like it all open and use soft bags for everything, no hard storage so I can't stack and stuff much more in there...
I had that in mind - I'm limiting it to 3 or 4 compartments to maintain storage area.
I keep u joints, rtv, dielectric grease, warn gloves, lug nuts, flash light, drain plugs, random lengths of wire and maybe a couple other things in those areas in mine. Definitely not useless
Wood will work just fine, especially with your father being someone who works with wood, Im sure you guys can build a quality box
Even if it doesn't come out right - it would still be a good project. It will be nice to do something with my dad other than drink beer and talk about fishing.
Oh, incidentally...the first aid kit and hair ties both ride up front where they can be more easily reached.
Well - I always keep at least a hair tie on my shift knob. And if its a first aid emergency where the 8 seconds it would take me to open the box would make a difference.... I wouldn't be able to help anyway.
kate do you have a Rubicon unlimited Sahara?
Yes, as the guys who answered while I was out playing in the woods... Alice is #431/1000. But she is one of a kind.
Hey Kate, if you spooled your winch line on the wrong way, take the time to respool it. It should come from "under" so as to align better with the fairlead when spooled in an out. My buddy made the same mistake, and the first time he used it destroyed a $250 synthetic line.
No - its spooled correctly. It comes from underneath. Its just that when I use the controls they are backwards. It causes me no problems.
So... Liz and I took off last night. Did some pretty sweet wheeling up in Vermont and ended up sleeping in the jeep on a nice secluded lake beach. Then came home to mass, did a bit more mudding for good measure. Pictures will ensue later... for now - NAPTIME!
