BTW, IN GENERAL... JUST CAUSE I MIGHT NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO YOUR IDEA POST DOESN'T MEAN i DIDN'T WRITE THEM DOWN ON THE LIST. Funny part is the group is going to be like WTF??? We all came with like 3 ideas, you've got 3 pages! HAHAH

Another big one for me would be a good hook that lets me hang my CB mike from the straps on the ceiling (I don't like drilling holes to mount stuff if I don't have to) without popping out of the hook or the hook snapping; the truck stops only have cheap plastic ones that hold on to the mike great, but the hook snaps. The metal ones don't snap, but the mike pops out of the place where the hook holds it. Something that would beat all of that though would be some rails that I can bolt down to the floor on both sides of the "bed" in my rig to have a way to strap down my tools, victims, etc. the rails should have adjustable points to tie stuff down to.. I have seen something similar in truck beds, but nothing designed for jeeps. My trip to the Rubicon with camping gear, tools, and liquid oxygen was an adventure without decent tie down points. The rails would be awesome!
Already make a billet fire extinguisher mount and have jeep rollbar specific mounts. A few people know my employer or possibly have figured it out since I've been on here chatting with me. I'm not wanting to advertise and spam the board. PM me if you want to see our fire extinguisher mounts. They're priced on par with some others out there but IMO ours are much nicer quality and looking.

Like the CB Mic Idea, added it to the list...

Mounting ideas... Worked on two different ones just a month or two ago. I completely over did them and they ended up being priced out of reality in my opinion.

By the time this hit the quadratec book it probably would've been in the $30 each realm... Just didn't seem realistic although I would've loved a couple! Planned on them bolting to the floor or wheel well tubs or any flat surface really...





These were meant to specifically clamp to jeep roll bars and with the dove tail, the hook could slide onto the clamps either way. Again, just was priced too high for reality though.

Or like ysb said a replacement panel under the cluster next to steering column that has a built in locking compartment for a CB/gps/ipod whatever, or a gun! I think there is some room behind those if I remember right.
Our first release will not be locking. It's on my list though to add a lock setup into it down the road though eventually.

I know the exact tray you're talking about!

I'm going to have to go out and look at my steering column area to see where you guys are all talking about! I would've never thought to put something in that area.

HAHAHAHAHA, I designed a bumper for OR Fab that had cup holders and bottle opener built in. They've since deleted those features though I noticed...

And next topic... I know someone on here is a landscape designer if I remember right and I already used the official plumber of the group but does anyone do actual landscaping? In particular artificial grass/turf? I had a quote done yesterday to do my front yard with a combo of fake grass and rock but I'd like to get at least one or two more quotes to compare with.

I'd be paying with a stack of $100 bills if that's any incentive for a deal. Anyone? (Gotta love tax return season)

Here's a picture someone sent to me this morning of the Mega Millions line in Primm. The line is about half a mile long already with an estimated wait of 6 hours.

Did anyone here get tickets?

Never bought a lotto ticket in my life. Probably never will and standing in a 6 hour line for sure won't be my first adventure in Lotto! I'd probably be too drunk to function 1/3 of the way thru cause I'd have a cooler and chairs. Maybe even a rolling BBQ/cooler combo. Crap, are there any food vendor carts setup? Food truck? there's some serious money to be made!!!

I kinda wish I had a slow low flying plane to circle around there with a mega phone yelling insults to people with no life willing to stand in line that long for nothing!

Sirhk, the first picture is how I have my CB antenna mounted at the lower A-pillar next to the radio antenna. That mount was intended to be a mirror relocator when the doors are off. I found that I rarely have my doors off and instead used the mount for my CB antenna.

A 3 foot Firestik fits there perfectly and is right about the same height as the radio antenna. If your radio antenna clears your garage, so will the CB.

I fit it without any modifications. The only thing I might change on it would be the ability to still relocate the mirror. Maybe add the CB mount forward on that plate so it can fit with a mirror.

The second picture gives you a view of where I was talking about adding concealed storage. That's the panel just below the steering. That's a 150 watt amplifier hidden back there. There's plenty of room.

What I'd like to see in that space is a lockable, easy access pocket for my handgun. Maybe something with a sliding panel so I can quick draw if needed.

If you win, could you get me some crab legs? I'm still geeking for some crab legs.

It's all over the news how long the line and wait is there. Why aren't people just driving south a few more exits? Even if they drive an hour further south to buy their tickets, they'll still save time. I'm sure the line won't be that long somewhere else.

Sounds like a strip club. What kind of food?

YSB, Okay, I see... You're talking about like a complete replacement panel. That's not something out of our realm at all. Interesting idea and location.

CB location noted also...
