These won't work with the new interior style. They're '07-'10 only I believe unless someone has a newer one and wants to try one out anyways to possibly prove me wrong.

The ones I have don't have the non stick insert piece pictured. If you want that stuff you gotta go hit walmart or something... Our production pieces we sell will have them. These freebie samples don't.

I have 4 total!!!! First come first serve! I'm also posting this on WM.com so just a heads up... Honestly I'm not even going to go in order of who speaks first. If you want one, let me know, I'll PM you my address, swing by and grab one till they're gone, my house is near trop and 95. I'm not going to hold them for someone that says they want one. Show up and grab it if you want it. LOL

Here's the one daystar currently makes.

Here's ours... It sits up taller. The pockets are deeper and bigger. We don't have the backstop for the GPS but we use the whole top surface area for the divided pockets.


I'm probably just going to set them outside somewhere at my house tonight and you can cruise by anytime to grab one till they're gone that way you don't have to worry about if I'm home or my schedule or anything like that.

BTW, if it's not obvious... These are FREE!

Only difference in these and production is our logo isn't on the bottom, these don't have the non slip pad insert, they're a tiny bit more glossy then the production ones will be and there's a strange mark on the bottom of the main pocket that if you lay the non-slip in nobody will ever see and honestly, even without it, most people wouldn't notice...

Khris
Nice looking product there, I like some of the pocket/backstop features better than my daystar one.

Thanks! I'd heard people not really liking the backstop on the daystar one cause most people don't find it useful. And then a lot of people complained the pocket also wasn't deep enough. So ours grew in height to give the pockets some depth. The two narrow ones on the side are wide enough for quarters and change. The front lip on the narrow one going across the front is actually undercut just a little to help keep stuff from sliding out under that amazing drag race like acceleration those 6 banger JK's produce, etc... LOL I just personally think ours is more useful for holding junk which is the point right? LOL I'm probably a little biased too though.

But hey, here's 4 FREE ones to anyone that wants to swing by and grab them from my house after tonight! Heck, if you have a JK with a daystar one and want to try ours to contrast here's your chance. If you don't like ours, no biggie, I just ask you pass it off to someone else that might like it.

It should be good and if it warped I'd be very surprised. When you were messing with it, I'm not sure if you flipped it over and looked inside at the size of the axle tubes but holy crap they're massive! I really doubt that housing warped, I would imagine the truss sucked to the housing rather then the housing sucking towards the truss! I also left the form seams unwelded till the very end to help let the truss move or twist all it needed to just in case. Anyways, thanks again! It's on there for good now that's for sure!

They say the axle tubes are a .188 wall which isn't a whole lot. Well last night I actually measured the wall on our track 9 and it's .3125 thick!!!! Holy crap!!! Not worried anymore! LOL
Good to hear that the truss went on with no problems. I could have gotten the gaps around the center a little bit closer with some more grinding. I never did look inside at the size of the axle tubes. Now I am kinda wishing I would have. I know that housing is a heavy bish. The tube size makes me wonder if it is in fact a track 9 housing or if it was just based on one. Granted, I didn't look at all the 9" housings on the Currie site but of the ones that I did look at, none of them have .3125 wall tubes. I wonder if it was a custom built unit? Either way, that thing should stand up to a serious pounding!

That's kinda what I'm guessing is the previous owner had it custom built up to his specs possibly? Whatever though, not going to complain! LOL

It was originally built for this as a 100% bolt in unit and judging on the money spent a custom built axle probably isn't out of reality.

So, can anyone tell me what platform exactly this started life as? Notice the body seam action behind the front door? And then the complete lack of an actually functioning rear door?

Sanity check please...

Situation: Aircraft while taxiing to the end of the runway prior to take off encounters a problem. Pilot calls a ground emergency and the aircraft is returned to its parking spot.

Would you call this:

A. Ground Abort
or
B. In-Flight Emergency/Abort?

Sometimes I am convinced I work around a bunch of morons hell bent on pissing me off...
