Thank you for the kind words gentlemen


The bikini top is by Bestop, it was a gift in exchange for some pics of the Jeep. I gotta send 'em some new ones this week. Great top, worked well for a few months now. No rips, fade, holds up well and keeps the water out.

Wow man looks great! So glad you made it out wheeling finally! Those pics are awesome! I'm also glad that you love your spring/shock combo! I think your jeep is officially my favorite on JF. So clean and sexy with a winning lift and tire set up. Its just about perfect IMO. Well done good sir!

Like KGB said, its bestop. I have the same one. Its on qtec but you have to look under cj7 if I recall correctly. Its sold as a "traditional" bikini that fits the late model cj7/early yjs. That's where I got mine.

Cheers

Yeah his rig is clean, very clean, I wish mine was in him the condition his is in, and on the bikini top dot they make strapless ones to? I have one on mine, but then again, I have the whole windjammer and duster combo also...

Thanks everyone! Really appreciate the support and it's great to know you guys are enjoying this build. Means a lot to me as I've invested quite some time and money into this project and still have so much to do

Sparrows, means even more, coming from a June YJ winner of the month! One of, if not the favorite Jeep on here! You've been an inspiration and your positive attitude along with helpful posts make for a great member to our community.

Jake, thanks for a call the other day, really helped out make future plans for the 4.2! I'm sure I'll have a bunch more questions, keep in touch bro!

I like both your Jeep and your regularly updated thread.

^^ Haha, thanks bud.

Guys, I need help finding a good spot for a hi-lift. I currently have it accross the back of sport bar and don't like how it sits. I used the typical u-bolts to hold it in place. It's inconvenient to get to, gets in the way of loading and unloading and doesn't fit right as it's the 48" one.

Was thinking about making a custom mount for my hood, but that would render it useless if I'm by myself. (can't reach lol) I see a lot of you guys run it on the tire swing out. For some reason it doesn't fit any way on mine. Front bumper was another idea, but it sticks out too far on each side of the bull bar and looks silly. Any ideas? Something so simple and I can't figure out a good spot for over a year now.

Hood and front bumper seem like a bad idea. I'd figure out a way to get it on the swing out. Wether it be a plate that sits over the spindle or a bracket and holds it to the front of the tire.

+1

I would think somewhere on the rear bumper or swing out

I like the rocker idea and rear swing out. I'll see if I can mock up some sort of bracket and weld it onto my swing out. Rocker mount would look awesome, may do a tactical showell on one side and hi-lift on the other.

I need time off work!! Interior is driving me nuts half covered with bedliner and half stinky old carpet. 8.8 is still on jacks waiting to get worked on. 4.2 could use a rebuild along with the Howell kit

I'd be worried about damaging the jack on trail obstacles on the rocker. Lol. But that's my luck. I'd mount it there and bugger up the whole side of my jeep

good point. I just went through something narrow with rocks on both sides. One wrong move and that jack gets jammed into the tub. With my luck especially

There's a bright blue sport bar with angle iron/ubolt hi-lift in the "I made this for my...." thread. Really like the look of that (looking for the pic)

First off I gotta say I really enjoy your build and all your pics. I really enjoy watching the progress youve made on your jeep...im hooked man...cant wait for the next round of upgrades and pics.

I saw where you were looking for ideas on mounting locations for your hi lift. Im attaching a pic of my location...your tire rack has the same look as mine I believe and I mounted mine on the center bar. Just thought I would share. Keep up the good work.
