Of course it's raining so I cant get any good top off pics. I'm pleased. When I went to pic it up, Chris was running behind. He had the rear spreaders notched and tacked, but not welded. So while he finished tabs I welded them up. I should have been more patient, because the drivers side spreader upper end is a bit boogery. There was a gap there and I decided to fill it rather than grind more lol. It's my own fault. Chris did great work, has similar tastes to myself, so I pretty much told him to do what he liked aside from giving him the basics. It's perfect for what I need. Now I have to get it pulled and sandblasted then grind it down, weld a few little spots and paint it. Its wheelable now though. Well, once I get another driveshaft. Lol





Seat area...





Handles...






If you notice, the cage is set up perfect for years from now when I back half it and go juggy... Lol

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Thanks bud. Decided against the hip bar, and still have to do the tie ins, but I have to figure out if I'm going to do it like Blaine did or not. I'd like to but I'm going to have to mess with it. So if I can't return the tube inserts to poly those will be up for sale too.

Looks really good dude, I really like the seat mounts. Tell Extreme Tim he is the ****.

Guess you need that Rampage top for sure now.



You can just sand the surface rust off the tubes and wipe it down. Then paint with Rustolium if you do not have time to take it out.

I need to grind a little on a few welds and spot weld a few things anyways, plus the rust is much worse than it looks. Lol it needs to come out.

Well, no one has bought anything from my ad. So funds are looking low. However, I'm waiting on cash from my corners and my drum set, and ill at least be able to buy parts first and get started. If all else fails, I'm sure I can find someone to let me borrow a welder for a week or so. The original plan was welder, then parts, but it's not looking like it's going to work that way. But cross your fingers anyways folks, I may even have a buyer for my suspension. All this is a lot of ifs/waiting, but we'll see. I'm done being hopeful. The dude I've been holding onto my soft top for backed out after a year and some change, which wasn't his fault, but it still sucks. Lol

Think happy thoughts

What exactly is this supplemental kit. Got a pic of it? I wouldn't mind having something beefier than the thin peice of scrap metal covering my pan, something to add to the list when I get some money. would it bolt to the POS stock shovel?

It only works with the AEV tummy tuck. I bought it because that's what rod at TNT said I needed. Too bad he didn't buy it off me to correct his mistake. Lol
