I took a bed sheet and some paracord and tied myself up a hammock, probably a total of $12. fits perfectly from the left rear roll bar to the front right bar. My TJ has no center console so no butt aches. Also fits snug with the soft top up.

PO had smashed factory plate holder into corner of body and dented it.
This is not uncommon on CJ, YJ and TJ's, according to a body shop owner and member here.

I'm fixing the dent and want to avoid possible repeat.
Decided to build a 2" receiver license plate holder. Especially nice since my 2" receiver is built into my JCR rear bumper.
Curt Manufacturing sell one of these license plate holders for over $80.00!

My cost.......
- 1/8"x1"x5' piece of flat steel ..................... $1.50.
- 8" piece of 2" square hollow tubing ............ free from friends junk pile
- 1/8"x2"x5" piece of flate steel ................... free from my junk pile
- $20.00 of Beer for friend to weld it together.

Total cost - Under $20.00 . (I drank some of the beer)

Just finished my bumper recently too. Welded in all of the tag holes and added the end plates. All it lacks now is paint. Total spent will be $20
