To keep this rear seatbelts from flapping when the top is down I use 2 of the trap bungies that are a loop of bungie cord with a ball on the end they are exactly the right length to fit around the roll bar tight without having to wrap more than once.

Use velcro straps. No need to cut zip ties and get new ones if you have 3 or 4 in the Jeep.

A rolled up length of rubber roofing, stapled to a dowel to drape over the dash when mudding and no roof, trust me. Just set it up by the defroster vents till you need it. Oh, don't forget it, turns into a surprise at 45+ on a beerrun.

Rear seat? Took mine out right away as soon as I got it home, along with the seat belts and carpet. Heads up, make sure you keep all the slack normally out of the ratchet housing for the routing or too much pulls in and renders belt useless, at least without some grief.

If you like it all one color, you would have loved the leisure suits of the 70's.

I embedded 50cal ammo boxes into the cowling beteween hood and windshield.
The real 50cal military steel ammo box with watertight gasket.
One on each side sunk as far as they would go and welded into the cowl.
Good place to store winch remote, tree saver, gloves, snatch block, etc. etc.
