So far I made my own overhead rail to hold CB and M.O.L.L.E pouches. I keep a rip-away First Aid pouch in all the time and snap in a flashlight when on the road. I was wanting to get the Smitty overhead, but didn't feel like they were worth the money, so I turned on the welder and grabbed some flat and tiny square and kept it simple.

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.

Super old now, but is there a write up on this? I had looked into doing this years ago and didn't find a way. I ended up swapping to a tape deck and playing tunes through it.

I like how the OEM fits and isn't flashy with colored lights.

Same here! Hopefully he'll shed some light on it for us. I've been wondering how to do that. I know you can use an FM modulator style, but my experiences with those were not good. In and out static drove me crazy.

Throw the photoshoppers a bone and post your executed mods, we would like to see the after pics. Copy and paste the url. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f59/executed-photoshop-mods-1417032/

Made a swing out tire carrier support clamp latch thing.

I like the size and style of my cheap Smittybuilt bumper/carrier but you get what you pay for. A 35" BFG spare, jerry cans, and a cargo rack are just too much for it. But to make it last as long as I can, I stopped the forward/backward deflection by making the toggle clamp as high as possible. The clamp is through bolted with a large backing plate on the inside. Now it is very solid and does not deflect at all. This may extend the life of the bumper a for few more seasons of crawling. The clamp will get painted black.
