Ammo can lockbox. Write up is in my sig.

I still need to mount it in the XJ though. It was mounted to the floor of my Dakota but I'm going to cut a small slice in the side of it for the tab from the stock spare tire carrier to slide through so it will be mounted on the side panel. Good for security when the doors are off.

Always happy to troll for a lol.

It actually worked really well, other than having crapola speakers installed.

That beer is the best. Damn IPhone tried to repost the last thing I posted on here. Ugh.

Great thread people.

For those that are looking at doing interior or exterior LED's. Here are two cheap places that I use when I install lights on customers bikes.

That's a great idea.

Ok so I noticed a few people posted in this thread about cargo space and net ideas. Come on now do a search on Google once in awhile ;-). Here are some things that you can do. For behind the rear seat add this:

http://www.amazon.com/Highland-95013...9323862&sr=1-2

And for the cubby hole in the rear, here is some netting for a truck bed. Alls youll need is some rings and fasteners to mount it to:

http://www.amazon.com/Highland-95013...9323862&sr=1-2

I ordered both so Ill try to get to it next week when I have time and post a thread link in here or just drop the write-up in this thread.

I bought a RV hitch for twenty bucks at a swap meet. I have under 40 bucks in misc. metal to turn it into a bumper and me and my buddy did all the welding. I don't know if this completely counts as "cheap" because I kinda lucked into it all but I don't have much money in it

Granted mines a 45" and It is set up with my existing trunk setup but if might give you some idea. Mine clamps itself in against the side of the trunk and the spare tire but it holds itself in place very well without clanking around when I drive on/offroad
