Today's Jeeping: Since extended highway testing of the top is in order, I'm heading out to log some highway miles this afternoon and stopping in to visit The Infamous MallCrawler this evening. Greta probably needs a bath in order to not look dingy by comparison.

If we're legendary, it's for all of the wrong reasons.

Caught Up!

I finally made it to real time! Great thread, great ideas being exchanged, great thought processing in action. This has made me rethink some (Ok, most) of the ideas I had for my LJ. Fortunately, I have time since all is on hold until I finish paying the ransom on my daughters wedding.

About your tailgate, and I'm just throwing this out there because of your comment about have to navigate two latches, are you thinking about mounting the gate to the carrier, making it one piece, with one latch and hinge? That's the 1st thing that popped into my head, but I don't know if there is too much movement differential between tub and bumper. Just thinking out loud. With my fingers.

Well, now that I'm current, I'll just enjoy my lunch and stare at two of my favorite things. JF and my old life.

If its the right file type you can click "go advanced" and do a direct attachment or upload them to Photobucket, then attach the url link.
I think these are the file types jf accepts-
