My overhead console.

room for my cb, gps, 3 switches for front, back and fog lights, map pocket (or cb speaker) and directional dome light. No, it can't stand up to someone trying to rip it out or smash it with a sledge but, I'm not too worried. I have not problem getting the soft top down because I attached the front of the console to the windshield frame loop thing. The whole thing cost me about $60.

(I don't know how to get my photos off here with out it just being "links" so here's a link to another forum that I have posted them up. PM me with details on how to post up regular pics on here please )


it can be improved on but so far it's worked out great. I have it wired but not hidden until I get all the lights installed and wired in. Just don't forget to get all the locks with a matching key

That looks sick, but how do you get the winch out if you need to?

not really sure what i'm lookin at? are you using it to run wires across over the engine? i think it looks cool and good job on the quality, just wanna know what it is so maybe i can do it!!

From the looks of it, you would have to remove the whole bumper. Bonus: theft prevention!

Yep, they'd have to remove the bumper to steal the winch... Bad thing about that is if the thief is ambitious I'm out a winch AND bumper...

I took two adel clamps and mounted a piece of u-channel aluminum between the grill supports and drilled a few holes in it to mount my relays for my accessories and can use the channel to hide the wiring.

Not too long ago I completed my York OBA. I have about $250 invested
and am VERY happy about that. I cut down the OEM Volvo mount and
redrilled it to fit in place of the Sanden A/C compressor. My A/C hasnt
worked in 3 years and I never miss it so I just completely did away with it.
Also, take note to this one people. Cant find a York w/ a serpentine clutch or
a serpentine clutch by itself somewhere without having to shell out the $ for
one? I had a buddy machine down the inner groove on the V-groove clutch
so its nice and smooth, the serpentine belt fits PERFECTLY inside the newly
created groove and spins the clutch without any issue whether its engaged
or not. I sadly dont have any pics of that but it was free for me, can be for
you if you have the resources (or friends), or is probably not that expensive
to have it done at a machine shop I have used it a couple dozen
times and have no issues at all...OBA is sweet!

I finally got around to putting in some flush mounted LED tail lights. These are 4" American Superlites. I'm going to mount the license plate to the rear stinger once it's finished.
