Could you imagine holding onto the Oh-Sh*t handle when you really need it only to have the whole dash splinter out...

Custom! Next is a solid wood tub. A little woodfiler and some sanding and it looks like new.

Hibiscus seat covers also popular.

make some time and read on, it gets funnier (especially when you figure out who actually has the bumper)

I had a wood dash once. I didn't have any money to buy a new one (growing family) and was into wood working at the time. They did a good job on that one. Mine wasn't as fancy.

I always like originality. I got an aluminum one now but am getting tired of that. Now that I have two steel ones hanging in my garage I'll probably switch them out.

What's left of a '79 CJ5
3 - 4" total lift
4.88 gears in a Dana 30 and off center ff Dana 44 with disc brakes
258 with TFI /T18 /D18 drive train with Saturn O.D.
33 x 12 DC Mud Country Radials

It looks sweet.

Functionality, though...yikes.

- Red '84 CJ-7 - I'll build it someday! I have the parts, but no shop and no time! :(
- Black '78 J-10 - rollin' on 37s and SOA with front/rear Detroits, high-steer, etc.
- Green '93 ZJ - Crusty old PARTS-GIVER TO THE CJ!

...and a driveway full of Subarus...

Seriously? 7 years late to the dance, and that's all you got?
