Spent right around $60.

New to the forum so I'm not sure how to post pics yet, or if I'm allowed. I got 'em if you want 'em, I just need a bit of help posting 'em.
I'd like to see them. Try using http://www.imgur.com. You don't need to create an account if you don't want.

To put a picture in the post, click the "Insert Image" icon (yellow, looks like a mountain with the moon) and it will set you up.

You can't light gasoline with a cigarette. Quit watching movies....

The stock ccenter console in the YJs are HUGE and go deeper than you would ever need. All I did to fix this was measure out a piece of plywood, hit it with some grey paint to make it blend, and set it in. Luckily there was already a 'ridge' that I could rest the wood on and didn't have to bolting to the sides. Now I just keep all the emergency stuff in the bottom portion.
All this was free, I had the wood laying around in the garage.

Back in the 90's when I had my CJ I always wanted some "Eugene the Jeep" graphics on my Jeep. Well today I had some idle time at work, some spare vinyl, and some time on the cutter.......so this one would be considered free

I'm considering that same exact thing. I got an idler pulley for where the AC compressor goes, and I was thinking of a small storage box. My idea was to use it for hot pockets on the trail. Throw them in in the morning and you have a hot lunch.
