I think I may go that route simply because of my lack of time.

I want to take a look at the can/mount you have before I start making too many decisions. I was going to buy one of each just to have on-hand, but I could probably learn what I needed to know just from a brief perusal.

[QUOTE=Sundowner;15116615]A couple of photos from this past weekend's nefariousness...

Pictured: A coilover.




Did Jay take that to KoH to keep up his styling appearance..
Did you pick up a rear axle by chance while you where there????

On a side note, with all of these Jeepers down in NC, what's the job market like for engineers?!

With enough beer, we'll think of something good.

Jay's hair is far too perfect to require assistance, and he was never far enough away for me to steal the F9 without him noticing...but I thought about it. Twice.

Looks like a good amp, overall. I still think it's pretty large, but I'm being unreasonable, there.

Wow I have been gone awhile. The rig looks amazing man! Glad to see you got the top buttoned up. What's the next big project?

Thank you! I think she's looking nice, as well; now I just have to get her to perform the same way!

The next BIG project is going to be suspension/steering/clearance-related; I need to score a bit more room under the transfer case, and we know what that means. Until then, it's all smaller stuff and simple bolt-on's. I think the jerrycan carrier will be a reasonably in-depth undertaking, but not really a "big" one; it'll just take some basic thought, common sense, and halfway-decent fabrication. I'm thinking of pulling all of my hinges and painting them, also...but that's also a small matter.

I love your modesty. For most of us any type of fabrication is a big project.

Thinking of painting them black? I've been considering the same thing.

Something like this:

After the hard deck I'm not scared of it, anymore; even with marginal skillz it can be done well if one takes their time.

Basically, yes. I've actually got a complete extra set of door hinges that I thought about stripping and repainting; that would keep my down-time to a minimum. I'd do the same with the tailgate hinges...and that would also give me a reason to buy an air sander and learn to use it before I refinish the deck.

Today's Jeeping: $11 worth of cut vinyl came in the mail.
