One inch square stock with home made aluminum brackets. I almost used gate latches or soft door latches, but did not want to reach back to unlatch the door.

I WAS gonna paint my jeep Orange w/the raised part of the hood black to match my black wheels. But you got off your *** 1st and DID it! Not that we'll ever bump into each other but....Nice Jeep man. Thanx for showing us that you don't have to have the latest/greatest parts made from un-obtanium to go have a blast wheeling. Enjoy.

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you

Thanks for all the compliments,guys. It might not be the nicest Jeep, but we've had a hell of a good time with it. Looking at it in the pics, I'm debating painting the half-doors white to match the top, and continuing the black stripe through the center of the roof and down the gate. Opinions?

Lately, I've been working on getting my 74 CJ going again. I was finally making progress and ended up cooking the starter in the process.

I've been working on building a set of flat fenders to replace the broken fiberglass ones. I figured I might as well do a home made highline to gain more tire clearance while I was at it. The inner fenderwells are from a Chevy truck box.

It's holding up pretty well. The trails I run are pretty tight, so there's some scratches from branches, but, meh, good enough for me.
