Finally got warm enough to pull the hard top/doors! Amazing how different it feels to go topless!

Swapped my hood, too. Got a bud to paint the new hood. Shoulda hired a pro, but its too late now, LOL.

I love the strange looks when you tell people you drive topless to work. They get even weirder when you tell them you drove to work with a bikini top on!

Put on my bumper today. Just need to build a bracket to hold the bulkhead npt fitting for an air coupler on the back. The led B/U lights are awesome. Hard to photo though. the light pattern on the door is about three feet from the lights. Would be great for a daily driver rear bumper to get texters attention.

Looks like the liquid check valve. It connects to the vent lines on the tank and charcoal canister.

I really ..... Really want a rear bumper like yours ! Nice work. I wish I had the tools to do such. I purchased the Hanson off road with pindle for my rear just haven't taken the dive to purchase the next piece yet

Diff's finally in. Shocks just sitting there to get an idea of lengths etc



Shock will bottom out before i hit the bumpstop so i need to extend the mounts



Shackles are mounted as per ARB instructions but clearly wont work this way.



Not only do they hit the shackle hangers they also hit the PS support.


This helps

Yup, front shackles are backwards.


Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Washed it and fixed the brakes on the wife's car. Now I can spend some quality time with the Jeep!

Went fishing. The water is still ice cold. Gonna have to leave the canoe at home and take the Bass Hunter until it warms. Flipping the canoe as cold as the water is would be very bad! That said, I didn't flip it and only caught two little bass, but it still beats work anyday!

Added my ARB covers along with the 1-1/4" tie Rod and draglinks,
I had to use a Little OTC tie rod puller for the pitman arm tie rod...she came out with a Bang!
the others came out using a standard Tie rod Puller I rented....sure tighented up the steering
I lost my 1-2" of slop at the steering wheel...I'm gonna get some driveshaft U-bolts in order to add back the steering stabilizer
the u-bolts should work with the Rancho stabilizer mount that was already there with the stock tie rod.

That looks like it would work. The can holders are nicely done. I debated to do it that way but I had the confers on hand and the rubi rack was on the Jeep when I bought it. I may go that route next season if shows any cracks or bends.

The CNC machine speeds it up for sure but it is still done by the brain and hand. Looking at your build, I would say give it a try. A troch, grinder(s), welder and a drill press. And a lot of thought and reading JF threads of course.

edit: Just went to the hanson site. You could build the JC4 type for under $200 I think. Use 2x2x.188 or .25 for the main arm on the pindle and use 2x2x.120 for the frame and 1x1..090 for the rack and carriers. pick up a few diy parts and a latch or AtoZz's T handle kit and a ready cut wheel holder. Fun project.
