Cargo Rack

Radiator Skid LEDs





DIY Bikini (Cut Old Soft Top I found on CL for $50)



3/4" Conduit for Rear Rigidity Strapped to Rollbar for tightness



DIY SunRider (Cut Stock Bows, 3/4" conduit, Clevis/Cotter Pins hold in place)







Questions, feel free to ask. I know some pics aren't well taken.
Dude Awesome Mods. I have a lot of good ideas. You do nice work. Wish my roof folded back like that.

Not today, but I made a hybrid Currie/WJ super offset tie rod and end to clear my track bar, diff, and drag link clamp at full stuff and full steering lock. Fun stuff...

You can see the offset end in the bottom of this pic. A lot of working the TRE with a 50 ton press to get that offset in there.


My RHD TJ - Savvy equipped... And loving it!

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

I made a tailgate storage rack. By leaving a 3" or so gap between the floor and the bottom of the shelf, I can put the flat items(strap,air hose, extension cord etc) on the floor without the shelf coming into contact. The bag is held on with velcro for easy removal. Total cost: $35

A cowling bar, in the event of a flop it'll take the initial hit and flex in, tied in to the sliders and tube fenders.
