I think you're reading my specs, I should have unchecked the box before posting.

Okay, here are a couple shots of the roll cage being welded up. It's not finished but you get the idea. Where the red strap is (in the shots) - is where the crossbar is now. More shots to come.

Copper,

What Kind of wheels are you running?

Makes for a tough unique look w/ the beadlocks painted the same color as your tub.

Are the Beadlocks real/functional?

Also, what kind of seats are you using?

Thanks, and please continue posting pics of your progress, as its looking great so far...

The wheels are American Racing that were altered by OMF Performance (Riverside, CA) and, yes, they are functioning bead locks that were powdercoated not painted. The front seats (not seen) are Smittybilt and the rear seat is Mastercraft. (My redhead Irish wife forced me to get the headrests for the kid's safety) I won't keep them on much as they create a nasty blindspot - I have to look through the small area between the headrest and the top of the seat. The back seat was raised 3" to accommodate the sub-woofer box I made.




And here's a better shot of the wheels:

Thanks for the response...

I really like the look of those wheels w/ the color matched powdercoated beadlocks!

Those mastercraft seats sure are nice, huh? In your previous posted picture of your sub enclosure, I thought it looked like a Mastercraft rear but those headrests (thank the Irish Wife...LOL) were throwing me off.

My Wife is going to ban me from this forum, as my shopping list for the CJ grows everytime I log on here!

LOL, I feel your pain. I started a Jeep forum on MySpace called "Jeep Addicts" because we're all addicts to some degree or another when it comes to our Jeeps.

Im new here so thought i would show off my jeep, that i bartered for. Best deal of my life. Heres the background i am into streetbike stunting and i have a cheap old 1987 honda hurricane which i thrashed, and this guy saw me one day and said he a bike like that in high school and was looking to buy one, well two weeks later i see him again and he offers to trade me straight over for his jeep, he has for sale(for sale sign in window $3500) i said what the hell. I figured i only payed $500 for my streetbike, im making a $3000 profit, but i am starting to like the jeep and deciding to keep it. Ill put picture up of the bike that i traded for the jeep and jeep pictures.
Jeep has 155k miles, 4 cylinder, 5-spd, 2.5 inch lift, brand new rims and tires. I mean when i got the jeep still have little hairs on tires, that alone surpased the price of the bike. He also put in a overhead speaker bar, and a back tool box, has a hidden under dash kill switch, a cd/mp3 deck, with 5 in lcd screen. So pretty much good trade!

Thanks.

I called Sgt. Cortez of the CHP and asked the definitive answer. He's the guy all the other CHP officers call to get answers about traffic laws. He told me that beadlocks are NOT legal nor are they illegal in California. There are four states where they ARE illegal including Colorado, Maine, Oklahoma and (I forget). The D.O.T. has not voted yet. Beadlocks are actually safer than traditional rims, but the issue is that most people won't check the torque every month. Believe me, I called the CHP BEFORE I spent the money on those beadlocks.
