Thank you sir, good luck on your transformation, will definitely keep an eye out for your build thread. Very addicting hobby, lots of learning experience and best of all, good times with your friends and fam!

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.
Thank you, next round should be coming shortly Still have a few major projects left with it. Then I can say I'm "done". I try not to think that being "done" with the Jeep doesn't really exist

I did consider slapping my hi-lift where you posted in the pic, however my swing out comes very close to hard top rear window. That thing would bust over the first speedbump I go over.



Got off work early last night and decided to at least make a temporary mount for now. I picked up a pre-drilled 5' stainless angle iron, cut just enough to fit across the roll-bar. Used pipe clamps or u-bolts to tie down onto the roll-bar. Then used another set of u-bolts to secure on the hi-lift. Master lock through the main hole and around the roll-bar to keep thieves away.

Should work for now:






I need to spray bed-liner inside of tub asap, carpet glue all over looks great

Thought of that, but I wouldn't be able to reach it sitting in the wheelchair. So if I'm ever out on the trail by myself, I couldn't even get to it

I was thinking something like this when I said swing out.

Or you can make a bracket like this for your tire. Put some rubber on the back so you don't damage your wheel and lock the jack to the bracket. Or chain it all together.

That's perfect!!! I like the look and can make that in a few hrs at home.

no worries, I really dig the hood look as well. Looks rugged and completely out of the way. Even if I could somehow work around it being there on trails, I use the jack at home quite often so that wouldn't work for me in the long run.

Unless he had a neoprene sleeve to cover the mechanism or frequently lubes it, I'd stay away from the hood. Too many puddle splashes are bad for the thing lol.

True I just figured I'd throw something out that was cool but... Probably a little to far out there lol. Figured I could give it a shot

It is cool. I like things that slide and move down.

Wow.
Thanks...I really don't know what to say. I'm humbled and it means a lot to me.

Keep up the good work bro. You Jeep is just about perfection at this point. All your hard work and detailed planning and research are really paying off!

Not much of an update but we did go shooting August 10th. Idea was to break in the Beretta 92fs and have GF fire AR-15 we put together a while back..

Brandon and I made AR300 armored plate target:




Some random shots at the shooting spot:








GF shooting Beretta for the first time




Myself taking a crack at it, great pistol, very accurate and fun to shoot:


Onto the AR:




Russian WW2 Mosin Nagant M1938:


My buddy let me try his 450 Marlin, put a nice size dimple into AR300 armored plate


Had a great time shooting, felt great to get out there and fire off a few rounds...
