On this forum, it's not real unless we get pics!!
Sounds cool and the price is right.......
but that's 360lbs on the rear end you don't want or need.
On the other hand, you don't have to fill it, do you?

Thanks for the welcome, I really enjoy this site. I wasn't replying to anyone in particular, just a cool cheap mod for my Crawler. The last date I saw before mine was 7-13-2013. I did get a lot of good ideas from the older posts. It may be the way I have to post. I only have a button that says reply to be able to post from my phone. There is probably a different way I just haven't figured it out yet lol.

Yeah I wont fill it for sure because of the weight. I would b more than happy to post pics but I have to have a certain amount of posts before it will let me I think. Got three jeeps, one thats complete and two that are constant projects lol. I'm sure you'll get tired of pics once they'll let me and I figure out how. They are my babies.

I host my pics on photobucket and then post the IMG code in as regular text

I think you just have to wait until you have enough posts...

I am using the iPhone app, and when you hit the quote or reply button, it opens a new page. Look for a "+" sign on the top right hand corner. That's where you'd add the pictures. Assuming that you don't have to wait for an amount of posts or something.

You only have so much space on the server to upload pics...
You'll have to go to the website (not the app) under My Account and delete some of your old attachments or upload from photobucket or some other photo hosting site

Theres all kinda of cool cheap mods you can do.

-Paracord Grab Handles, Seat Belt Holders, and Door handles. You can make them yourself, YouTube Cobra Weave with paracord, it is easy to do and looks great especially when matching the Jeep.

-Paint your Brezels, or angry eye headlights with VHT Nightshade paint.

-Truck Beadliner Spray Can, spray doors or side mirriors for a tougher look. Also cargo door and front grill can be painted.

-Color match the inside dash of your jeep with rattle can paint to the outside color.

-On/Off switch for dome light when taking off doors.

-Antiseize door hinges for easier pull on and off access

I'm sure there is more but I cant think of them all off the top of my head

There are a lot of ways to do it, but recently I saw something I liked a lot better than Harley style mirrors in the door hinge... A guy found some blind spot mirrors at Autozone that stick to the inside of the windshield and can be horizontal or vertical, and moderately cheap at like $14.00. I like the idea of being able to keep it totally inside the interior or extend it outside of the windshield frame depending on your needs.

Otherwise, you can take motorcycle mirrors from cruisers and fab them up to go into your door hinge since you'll be doorless.
