Installed a custom hardtop hoist (my father-in-law fabricated it for me) in the garage. Hooked it up to a boat trailer winch and cranked the top off. Then I installed my new safari top.

I can now back the Jeep in to remove the top and then park the Jeep nose first and the hood fits nicely under the suspended hardtop.

It was a beautiful day in Houston today and was great to go out without the hardtop.

what are they? i am in the same market....

What's coming through is alive. What's holding up is a mirror. But what's singing songs is a snake looking to turn this piss to wine. They're both totally void of hate, but killing me just the same. The snake behind me hisses what my damage could have been. My blood before me begs meopen up my heart again. And I feel this coming over like a storm again. considerately. Venomous voice, tempts me, drains me, bleeds me, leaves me cracked and empty. Drags me down like some sweet gravity.

I added in the Kilby Dual battery tray - To keep track of the voltage with the batteries I added dual Volt gauges, one for each battery, The center gauge is a dual air pressure gauge. It has two needles, one white and one red. One for the ARB compressor and one for the Viair in the rear. Came out pretty clean.





I also put in some clear LED tail lights. 6 inch lights -

Looks Great! I like how you used gauges with black instead of silver or white faces and bezl's. I am going to put a black face/bezl trans temp gauge in the empty flat space on the lower right of my my dash center console. What did you use for the third brakelight in the center of your spare? I am looking for a light that will fill the center opening.

i ordered my 9000 pound T-MAX winch
and my new lights for the windshield brackets and bumper showed up at my door

2001 TJ YELLOW
I flopped and broke my piece

If it won't budge, get a bigger hammer, if it breaks in the process it needed to be fixed anyway.

Sweet man, how many miles are on the truck? I want to buy an older truck to tow my junk with too but I am worried about the high mileage on the older trucks and having to stop "modding" the Jeep to keep the tow truck running (since the tow truck would be my DD to)
