Well, since i first saw the post for rear headrests in a TJ, i wanted to do it. I finally got to it in the last week or so. (did a little at a time). here is the original thread:http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...59358&t=418613

now here are my pics. I got the headrests from a Pontiac Minivan for $5 in a junkyard, the u channel cost $10 and i did by a rasp for my drill for $3. not too bad for an $18 mod. now my kids will have neck support when they get out of the boosters.

getting ready to drive out to CO and Moab w/ a group of friends so last night I made 4 highway pegs.
you would be correct, i am sharing them with friends. actually one of the guys had knee surgery not too long ago and he needs to be able to stretch his leg out. so he asked me to make one and after i did the first one every one wanted one lol

I got my HP D30 w/ WJ crap, ARB, 4.10 front axle a little closer to completion. All that's left is to figure out the trackbar mounting, weld it on, weld the sway bar brackets, and figure out/weld the steering stabilizer.

Great job on the trailer. Wish I could find a junkyark with any Wranglers in it. I have read through this entire thread, and your trailer is the most impressive project, for quality and budget.
thanks man, got some new pics of it, still not done but getting closer:

also bought some raptor liner for the inside, but cant put it on for another 2 weeks.

i 3rd that, really like the safari nets. good work, looks just as good as what you would buy from 4wd or quadratec. would love to see the write up on this one

Guzzy, I dig that trailer. A lot. I love that you put the two different tailgates on it. That's perfect. Now you need to build a raised shell for it. Maybe even a mock soft top. That would be cool.

And that's a kick *** bumper/stinger Stout.

My M8000 didn't come with a switch box bracket, so I made this one from a small sheet of aluminum diamond plate purchased at the local hardware store. I made a template from cardboard first for the test fit, then cut the alum. and bent it. It bolts to the allen screws that hold the spool spacer. I needed the wires to come out at the bottom so I had to turn the box cover 180 degrees. Otherwise I would have had a big red "M" in in the front. The hole for the wires is edged with rubber to keep them from getting chaffed. I used a jig saw with a fine tooth metal blade to cut it out. I wasn't sure how it was going to cut, but I found out the secret to cutting aluminum is soap. I ran a bead of dawn dishwashing detergent along the cut line and cut it all without wearing out one blade. I understand bar soap works well also.
