It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

Hopefully this week. Went out of town for the weekend for wedding anniversary and just got back today. I want someone with experience to come help me since I'm apprehensive about doing it by myself

Window Rack

I stumbled across the Window Rack that Dirt Bound Offroad has available for XJs only and figured I could make one simple enough for my WJ. I put pencil to graph paper and came up with a good design.

Here's how it came out:





Installed





I got it welded up yesterday afternoon and then over the course of last night and today put 4 coats of Plasti-dip spray on it so it wouldn't rattle against the window. The tabs on the top that hold it in I dipped in the Plasti-dip bottle two coats so it's not scratching anything. It fits exact but Im going to drive a couple self tappers through the bottom bar any way.

My plan is to make one for the other side and hang MOLLE/PALS compatible bags to give me more storage for small items. Here's my FAIK and binos hanging off it to give you an idea.

Please do elaborate - I just installed my d44, cut off the brackets and moved them up to 0 degrees - wanting the practice before doing my 14bolt ff

Changed the battery as the old one was dying a slow (and natural) death. As its winter in Southern Hemisphere, I didn't want my wife and kids stranded somewhere with a dead battery (WG is her daily driver).
