i wanted an overhead console that suited my needs but all i could find was a rugged ridge sort of thing that didn't really fit the bill… so decided to make up my own.

originally my constraints were:
- had to fit nicely within the area of the soft top
- couldn't obstruct any vision
- had to be removable
- had to allow the the soft top latches
- had to house the UHF radio

so scribbled out a rough idea of what i wanted on an old receipt and got to work with the tools and some MDF.
didn't expect it to turn out that well but it actually worked out perfectly!! {i can probably dig up the receipt or write down the specs if you want to do it yourself, just send me a PM.}
The plans changed a little along the way and i decided to go in a different direction with the UHF placement and also decided to chuck some speakers in the console with a little storage area in the middle. It does everything i set out to do. doesn't block any vision, fits perfectly and can be moved quickly for the soft-top latches or removed if necessary.

i did end up removing the sun visors as A) i don't use them and B) they were just an extra step in taking the soft top and I'm lazy…… however I'm considering adding some sort of slide down visors to the back of the console

(sorry, forgot to take pics during the build!)













i still need to carpet those little blocks on the sides and it still has to pass an off road test….:???: i have a feeling it won't like corrugations. might have to sort out some kind of cushion or elastic strap or something

I wasn't crazy about the look of my full width bumper with my new tube fenders, so I built a stubby.

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!
snip the charger wires and run it to a switch, run your power into your smart junction box behind the glove box, that way you can keep your power port and run it on a toggle switch to cut power, eliminate the threat of parasitic draw

Just posted this to the "what did you do to your TJ Today" thread, but I figured I'd share here too.
After weeks and weeks of squeezing bits of free time into my tire carrier, it's finally finished. I just wish I had taken more 'during construction' pix. There is obviously too much weight to hang on just the tub sheet metal and the 1/8" armor, so I built reinforcement "L" brackets w/ gussets out of 1/4" plate, and they're mounted to the inside of the tub. The carrier brackets bolt through the armor, body, then through the reinforcements for the actual load support.
The hinge side has flanged bearings from the hardware store. 1-3/8" OD and 3/4" ID, with 3/4" bolts. The pin side utilizes some Energy Suspension bushings- I think they were for a trac bar, I can't remember. I was looking at a lot of different applications at Autozone to get the right size. There's a thick steel sleeve that installs inside the two halves, and a 1/2" hitch pin fits perfectly (so does a 3/8" drive socket extension for temporary use, as you can see).
