A fold-away step, the wife doesn't like hopping to get in and out so I put a piece of chain there as a step that, when on the rocks, moves aside easily.

They are excellent, they have held up in a professional environment, along with a lot of HF tools for a while now. What made me decide to get them is this review

I have both the 41" upper & lower & side cabs as well as the 5 drawer cart, all the earthquake guns and a ton of other HF hand and power tools.

You should have spent a little more. Sorry not my cup of tea.

Sorry to burst yalls bubble but I dont run those arms. I made that comment as a joke when someone was asking somebody else what the chains were on his jeep. Refering to the lower quality arms that Rough Country use to put out. I can't comment on the quality of their new stuff because I don't run any of their products. Nor do I know the true quality of their older products. I just read on multiple forums that there are much better options than Rough Country when it comes to control arms and numerous other parts. Sorry for the confusions guys.

made a little cargo rack

Had an idea to make a little cargo rack so I picked up a Harbor Freight hitch mount rack. I did a little modification to it and am pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Very nice! I have been thinking about doing that for a while now, but was thinking about mounting it to the tub to the left and right of the tailgate. I hadn't thought of the roll bars. Feel like doing a short writeup?
