$15 a piece for round grommet mount led STT lights. Gotta love Harbor Freight.

I ended up using a nibbler, 4.5" angle grinder, die grinder (Dremel Tool), file, and emery cloth for the holes.

Got them from Quadratech about 10 or 11 years ago, I believe they are Steel Horse brand seats.

It is 2x2" 3/16 thick box. Very similar in design to JCR's Stage 1 sliders if you check those out. I Used some 1"x3/16" flat for the pinch seam and 1x3" between the slider and the 'frame'
You can see a little of my front mount here. the pinch seam mount is welded to the 1x3

That reminds me, the t-case skid in the pic was free except for welding materials I already had. It was some scrap 3/16" plate from work

Trunk Storage

I posted this on another thread. Cost me about $15 (Scrap Plywood = free, tie-downs = free, L-Brackets = $3, Upholstery Material = $12).

I removed the rear seat and seat belts, never use them anyway. I used cardboard to make a template. The plywood is 1/2" scrap that I had in the garage. My top piece measures 36" (front to back) x 54" wide. It is notched for the roll bars and tailgate latch. The piece covering the front started out 36" x 12", I used the template to get as much covered as possible. I covered the top and front pieces with heavy-duty upholstery material. I used stove bolts on the L-Brackets, the heads are under the material. The tie-downs hook into the bed loops that are already there. I also added a rear cover (curtain) because I didn't like people seeing inside the trunk everytime I opened the tailgate. Since it is just a curtain, it is easy to flip out of the way when I want to get inside. I have hauled many pounds of groceries, building materials or tools on top of it without any trouble.

I took some pictures, try to post them now............

P.S. I liked the Cammo headliner earlier in this thread, might have to try that.

I dont have a pic of it yet but there is little black "ring" type things with a screw that holds them in in the back of the grand cherokees... I bought 8 of them from the junk yard for 2 bucks... I mounted them in the back on the wheel well about 1 inch from the floor... there is 4 on each side that way I have something to hook bungee cords to when I have stuff back there... They dont interfere with the rear seat either...

I don't have them yet. I'm just gonna mount one under the bumper until I build my rear bumper. I'll find a spot in it for some back up lights. I just did a transmission swap anyway and didn't have my back up lights connected.
