here's a link to my storage box setup, http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f37/y...ite-up-596248/

I pretty much just designed it as I went, but I think it turned out ok. it consists of 4 seperate parts, two wheel well boxes, a bulkhead/trunk section that can be attached in two different locations, and a lid/tonneau.

Spraypainted the headlight bezels black. >$10 including paint and sandpaper. IMO really cleans up the front end.

offtopic, with all the namecalling, borderline trolling and obscene language wbrett1027 has used, one starts to wonder how he has retained member status... Or atleast his inflammatory posts.

Is it the dream that one day you might be something you're not?

Copper I will gladly take this responsibility off of your shoulders. Considering that I'm from MD...and he's from MD as well...I think I actually have a far better chance of getting some "results" than you do. Don't put him on your ignore list though...that takes away some of the fun.

How original. What movie did you steal this line out of?

This thread is startin' to get good.

But back to the topic, Cherry Bomb exhaust with a side exit AAR 'Cuda style. Just because it's a Jeep doesn't mean it can't have a somewhat performance look to it, IMO.

Life's tough, that's why I drive a Jeep. Until it breaks, then life's a *****.

Can you post some pics? My exhaust pipe was rubbing on my rear shackle after redoing the lift because of the length of the bolts so I had to sawzall it off because the noise was getting to me. I though about doing a side exit though but just didn't know how it would look.

Auxiliary Fan switch.

All you need is some wire, a switch, two female quick connects whatever size your switch takes , and one of those strip free wire connectors.

Go to pin2 on connector 3 under the hood to the PCM.

Use one of those strip free wire connectors and run another line off to a switch and it will go in the "Power" position on the switch, then run another line off the ACC position on the switch and run it to good ground.

You are done.

What happens is the computer sees that the engine is getting hot, and grounds pin2 on c3. You just make this happen without the computer's interference.

I wish I could post a pick, but don't have a camera(at least not at the moment). Mine looks OK. If lookin' at it from the side you can see the Cherry Bomb and the rest of it. But the tip I picked isn't long enough so it doesn't stick out beyond the rocker(which is probaly better). If I do get a camera I'll be sure to post it up.

Very cool, I'm doing this with my XJ soon. One thing I did was the Ext. Idle switch that most people know about but ill post it up here anyways. On my 98, I ran a switch that grounded the grey, solid color no stripes, wire coming out of the PCM. when you flick the switch, it grounds the grey wire and idle rpms rise to about 1100. useful for jumping, running accessories, getting good idle heat in the winter, etc. Disclaimer: wire colors vary depending on year so search around and find the correct thread (although in most years post 98 I'm pretty sure its grey)

The KC Daylighters may not be under $100, but putting them on my A frame was a cool mod for about ~$50 including brackets, wiring and a relay.

Made a simple but solid/rugged mounting system for my LJ Hard Top.

I did this on my old 88 YJ and was really pleased with it. The idea behind this is to spread the load on the hardtop mounting surface so no single point of the fiberglass is asked to bear the entire load should any form of incidental contact happen off road or otherwise.

In short one of the more common things I saw with other Jeeps was the fiberglass around the bolts would crack or wear at a much higher rate due to the pressure put on the glass whether from overtightening, contact offroad (trees, etc..) or anything else really.

Anyhow, I'm rambling. On with the info...

Hardware:
1"x36"x1/8" Alluminum, holes made with 3/8" drill bit
Forget the length on the Eye Hook bolts, think it's 2.5" but I know diameter is 5/16"
I experiemented with both single/double nut at the top to square up the mounting surface. Single Bolt seems to be the best if you want to use a double washer system on the underside of the bolt.
Top and Bottom I used a regular washer as well as a rubber washer.
I also used a nylon threadded nut to secure the bolts, could just as easily use locktite if you want.

Total Hardware investment about $20
