Almost forgot, I found two tire carriers from old Chevy blazers. The smaller ones they made after the fullsize K5 was end of story.

Got the idea from this thread;
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f177/junkyard-tube-doors-705207/





These latches are actually pretty close to the ones from the tire racks only those were wore out.

Also I recently put the pull levers from the tire carriers on my doors, but have no pics yet.

Here's my build thread on these;

crazy rays pull it by me....well you don't get much unless you know something they don't, which isn't much. For a kouki 240sx I found eibach suspension I gave to a friend only cost us $70 and an hour or two and the tailights retail for about $600 to some and ****ers at the yard ran them over because I didn't know what they were back then.

Lots of JEEPs out there though if I ever need stock parts or taurus fans lol

Nothing too cool besides baseball bats, smut magazines, and tons of XJ's. I go to pull-a-part north of atlanta. Never seen a wrangler there...

Always nice when you can go to the yard and pay for your part with the money you find. There is a HUGE yard about an hour from here, me and a friend spent 4 hours there walking around finding A BUNCH of useful things, also found a 20, a 10, and 3 5 dollar bills.
