Cool idea. They are not for me but a neat way to use old horse shoes.

A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.

These are a home made version of 'safari doors'. I never understood the desire to have "just so I don't fall out" doors. I never ever feel like I'm going to fall out. Real closed half doors help with heat in cooler weather, but safais?

They weight 20 pounds and the rebar is about an 1/2 inch thick. I had an idea to do it one day and we had the stuff at the house so i made them

Does it flex a lot or do the horse shoes keep it all rigid?
