Tool pouch for the essentials I might need when driving around but don't want to lug my whole toolbox:

I used the large bag from this set I had bought. Some velcro patches attach it to the front side of the left rear wheelwell. It's out of the way but easy to get to, and fairly inconsipcuous to help avoid it being stolen when the top is down. I keep pliers, screw drivers, 1/4 ratchet, torx set, small flashlight, and an adjustable wrench in it. It also makes a convenient place to store small things like the nuts from the bottom of the door hinges.





When the seat is all the way back, there is about 1" of clearance between it and the pouch:


It's not fancy, but cheap and effective. Less than $15 for everything.

power for relocation license plate light bracket

Can't post pics.... I purchased the LED 3rd brake light/license plate light that places the license in the middle of the spare tire. I went down and junk yarded another contact set and placed it directly over the top of the existing one and ran a single wire over to the contact on the body from the running lights on the passenger tail light. Sorry for the poor pics, but ya get the idea.

body contacts (bottom two are the 3rd brake, top single is the plate light

additional bracket (haven't got another cover yet, but it's coming)

The kit came prewired with three wires (two powers with a joint ground). So this cleanly takes care of the wiring w/o having any extra exterior wires exposed and in harms way.

Modified my Auto Tranny skid plate. The DS hit the plate after I installed the lift. I saw this on another forum and decided to do it myself. Only took about 4 hour to complete.

Fabbed and ready for the install



Installed

I built this front bumper a while back.



And here's the rear.





I made some mirror brackets to run with no doors... I had to gom old school on the passenger side so I could see the mirror through the windshield.




I built some rock sliders, I think you can see them in the first pic but they weren't painted yet...oh yeah, they're gold too...

Oh yeah, and you can see the high lift mounts on the hood in the mirror pic... I've been a busy busy boy.

I used to build them back when I had my Zuk... If you look at the pic of the front bumper you'll see what's left of my bumper business. ibuiltbumpers.com. I sold quite a few of 'em on ebay... Had a website, the whole works. But then it got to be more of a pain than it was worth and I already have a job...ha ha
