Yeah we will see. Its really only possible because the backs of the seats are metal or very hard plastic. On the good side though, "yes" I screwed into the back, but because of the carpet backing, the holes are not visible when removed.

Yeah,

Hey Nick, what sort of liner are you using for your back? Just noticed you have a complete liner for the entire back storage area, but I haven't been able to find one when researching online. Is that a custom made one?

Quadratec's Liner. I also have their one piece back seat liner (love it, saved my butt many times so far). I want to get the fronts eventually too, right now I have the Husky fronts.

Well, I installed the ASFIR Front Skid - unfortunately it doesn't seem to be compatible with with the 4xGuard Belly Skid

Soooo, the three front screw points aren't secured - its just bolted in the four factory locations. Good enough for now, not for off road use though.

I will have to get underneath there in some warmer weather and mess around with both skids. Maybe I can pull it into place with the screws, or I can perhaps but the belly guard on the bottom of the ASFIR - Who knows, I might be going full ASFIR come spring and be selling a refurbished 4xGuard Belly skid if I can't make this work.

Just a thought (but would be visible)... But what about installing a rivnut in each hole you've screwed into? You can do them blind from one side, and it will add threads that you can screw in and out of when attaching that MOLLE panel. You could paint he rivnuts to match the carpet, and even paint the screws to match (or even use a quick wing type screw head setup).

Sorry to hear about the troubles. I'd be happy to make your life easier and take that belly skid off your hands.

I call dibs if you sell it!

That is an interesting idea, definitely will investigate that more!

Found some time and snapped a picture of the ASFIR skid installed.

Installed an actual backup light the other day. Another bargain-china-eBay purchase success. Happy with the single row design and light out out.

Because the Yakima roof rack does not come all the way back, the light does cast a shadow. However that light is more than enough to see everything when making a tight/technical backup or U-turn whole wheeling. My spot reverse bulbs also do a pretty decent job of lighting up the shadowed area (not pictured).

After a little wait, my new CoverKing seat covers came in. I got them in KryptecŪ camo pattern and with MOLLE tabs on the back of them.



This will cover up the rip I have in the driver's seat nicely and add some great organization for everyday and when 4x4 camping this Spring/Summer/Fall. The big pouch on the driver's seat nicely holds 1 qt oil and 1 qt tranny fluid - much cleaner look!



I also got some Amber covers for my Rigid Duallies off of eBay. These are great lights, but they throw light in the same area as my high-beams. Now with the amber covers, I can have some more effective light in snow or heavy rain and fog.

Over the past couple of months I've been getting tired of worrying about nailing my 23" LED light bar when parking in garages. So, after some patience and hunting on eBay, I found a 39" single-row LED light bar to replace it.





Here is a before/after shot.

Great build man! You should put up some shots of the light output of that single row LED bar compared to the ones you had previously taken!
