Trade it for useful metal.

97 TJ Sport - 4.0/HP D30 w ARB/8.8 w LS/4.88s; 35s and flat fenders on 2.5 lift

84 CJ7; frame off restoration in progress.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

if i had a dollar for all the useless crap i've collected and paid for over the years, i'd still have negative money.

Example: Last week I bought little blanks of PEEK, a slab of HDPE and a slab of UHMWPE. the PE was cheap, but the PEEK sure wasn't. It was 1/2 off remnants day at the plastics place!

I have no idea what I'm going to do with little pieces of PEEK, except use them for a desk ornament. In case you don't know what PEEK is, its a very high quality, high density, implant grade polymer used in the medical industry (among other places) - it costs like $160-180 per lb.

I say try to find another section 4 ft tall and 4" wide. You can make side rails for a trailer

If you have acces to a brake make you a cover for your fuel tank. You can also use what is left for a front frame cover.

You're crazy! What the hell will you do with PEEK at you house? pistons for a homemade bb gun powered by H2O2? UHMWPE? I'm guessing ultra high MW PE, but for what? HDPE, for sure can be useful, but LDPE is good for most stuff, PU is good too, but teflon is the kick *** plastic! Teflon inserts on rock sliders would be sweet!
