Put a driver side floor board in for around 35 bucks. Had to borrow a buddy's welder. I know it looks like crap but hey first time welding and first time doing any body work........

Master flow MF450 $60, synergy mounting plate $39. Just made it under $100. I think I still have some wire loom in the shed.

for the old timers using leaf springs, its only a matter of time until a leaf breaks, and thats usually on the trail. I made up 6 of these nifty clamps to save the day when needed. Broke a main leaf (double military wrap helped) and got me home. Easy, cheap and when needed...priceless.

This is hardly exciting but I figured I would post it anyway since I like seeing free solutions... I got tired of my cb coax just being run over the tub and decided I wanted to install a rubber grommet for it to run through. While I was having my tires rotated the other day I saw some old valve stems that had been chopped off in the parking lot, they looked like they would work so I decided to give it a whirl as a grommet. Drilled out the center large enough for the cable to fit through and drilled a hole in the jeep large enough to get the valve stem through. Works pretty well actually and looks much better.

Good idea. I like seeing I did this for 100 or less rather than I bought this for 100 or less

That looks terrible. Why would someone do that and post it to a forum. Id be embarrassed to show that to anyone.
