Thanks for taking that! I think I am going to go full length though because let's face it, drilling into the hatch isn't going to happen, it would also look like cr@p.

Man that is a damn good looking Jeep. The carrier is what sets it off. Always loved the look of a WJ tire carrier if it's done right. THIS is done right!

Whacha think about removing that pinstriping and relocating the overland badge to where the trail rated badge goes? That'd be unique and bad! (The good kind of bad! )

Is there a reason you only have one slider on?

alright alright, tomorrow afternoon ill post of a bill of materials
thanks for the support and compliments but most importantly thank you JCdriller for your innovative design


there really is minimal welding and i would think could be done for cheap even if you had to go to a shop to have the welding done

The tire carrier looks GREAT!

And i'm a little biased, but i think that Inferno red pearlcoat is the best looking color on a WJ

heres mine
