Both the ideas/builds by Sundown1 and fuzzychicken for rear storage are great, for my application I particularly like Sundowns. I like the idea of having some open storage as well as secure storage. I live in the Phoenix area and could have my top off more than I do but hate thieves, I'm sure all of us have had something walk off from an open vehicle at one time or another. Great job guys.

R2D2 Phone Charger

I made a mount for my R2D2 phone charger. I pulled the change tray and cut a piece of plastic to fit him in. When I turn the egnition, R2's head turns, makes movie sounds and can charge 2 phones at one time. I bought him here:

I'm going to push the cigarette lighter in and but a blank in the hole so I can hide the power wires. I still need to paint the plastic black, but this is pretty much a Star Wars/Jeep nerd's wet dream!

Garage
I made some removable side steps, I used some CARR Steps and welded them to some flat plate. Painted them and drilled a couple of holes in them, then drilled and tapped the plate that runs under the tub from by Rock Sliders. Now I just have to remove two 3/8" bolts on each one and I am ready for the trail with nothing hanging down when they are removed.


















I can quit drinking anytime I want, but hey I'm no quitter :)

I made 2 RotoPax Gas can holders for my LJ. Each one can hold 2 containers. $16 in metal; $18 in hardware (U-bolts, nuts and caps) and since I liked the way they looked, sprung for powder coat, $95.

That's really nice I'm thinking about how to make one because I bought a rotopax gas can like a year ago but I was too cheap to buy their mount so I've just been carrying it. I'm thinking about mounting it flat with the back though because I'm not gonna be running a spare.

Drilled the dash and added a 3.5mm aux input for the stock stereo using the cd changer wiring harness input with one of the blitzsafe harnesses from amazon for ~$70.

Including the rca to 3.5mm cable, female to female coupler, and the box of rubber grommets it all came out to about $85 all said and done.

that's a lot of money for basic parts... I would have (I did) just gotten a new radio with the aux input for the same cost. the one I got for my ZJ also has USB and bluetooth and it was only $100

That was an option, but I'm not a huge fan of aftermarket headunits. I saw one JVC 1.5 din that looked pretty plain with all of the aux options and a similar color to the gauges, but the reviews weren't stellar. The aftermarket flashy LED look a lot of them have just isn't for me. Besides, with the soft top the less attention I draw to the interior of my jeep with a mod the better.
