I got rid of the factory "Z" linkage for the transfer case. I swapped the 249 for a 231 and could not shift into 4Lo after the swap. I used a gm 231 tc shift tab, two rod ends, and a second "reclocked" floor shift bucket. Works great shifts are positive, and can reach 4Lo now.

The tab from a gm 231 flips the linkage towards the body, instead of towards the ground like our jeeps. The body side arm that is connected to the interior shifter was repositioned. I ground the welds and hammered the arm off the shaft and rewelded it at a 6 o'clock position. The new tc arm and body side arm are now parallel to each other, and I installed a new linkage made from two rod ends and a lenght of threaded rod to maintain adjustibility. When I first installed everything it did not work correctly until I changed the body side arm.

Ammo can lockbox with lights. $37

I welded a piece of steel in the inside for the latch to catch when it's locked. Don't have pictures of that though.

I like that. It looks like those wires could get snagged though. Did you ever think about using a momentary/pressure switch near the hinge that activated when the top was opened?

I thought about welding in some square steel tubing to run the wires through, but the only stuff I ever put in there is my phone, gps, ipod, ect. Haven't had anything snag it yet, plus the piece of steel for the lock covers the wires and switch for the most part. The stuff in the picture was just tools and such I was using when put it in. I tend to leave my windows down a lot and I got tired of having to roll them up all the time because there's expensive stuff in the truck.

Yeah, but I really don't open it enough to bother. The cab of my truck is small enough that I can just hold the top open with my knee. If I opened on a daily basis I might do it though.

I had removed the "milk jug" bumper ends for a cleaner look....I think the front looks better, but the rear bumper just appeared too narrow.
My original thought was to mount auxiliary back up lights where the jugs were on the back, then I thought why not just mount them in the jugs.
After a whole lot of cutting and fabricating a couple of brackets this is what it looks like.

Total cost $10 for some Harbor Freight driving lights ....the metal and plastic I already had.
