I built it to hinge back to enable access to the front storage.
I usually just travel with my dog and that setup would be perfect for more gear and a spot to sleep. More pictures please!

I keep the windows in more so they don't get damaged or lost in my garage lol and 6" flat flares help keep the water from flinging too much.

Just dropped it off at the shop, had a really bad case of death wobble at 50-55 mph that came out of nowhere and scared the crap outta me, was definetly a pucker moment.

Body ship took it for a spin to confirm the wobble, gonna take it to a shop tomorrow to see if they can identify the cause.

Gonna be jeep less for a while :cry:

Long story short, I've run the MTR's since '09. In the last 2 months I've had 2 serious punctures that required new tires. I'm switching to Duratracs since the jeep sees more pavement miles than anything right now.

Since I'm getting married in 4 weeks, $$ has not been available to buy all 4 new ones!

It's at the body shop to replace the side body panel,fender, cowl piece, rim and whatever else but I figure they probably won't be able to pinpoint the cause of the death wobble.

It honestly came out of nowhere, I drove the jeep to work this morning no problem then coming home it did that, had a co worker behind me when I pulled over and he said my passenger front wheel looked like it was about to pop off when I hit my brakes to pull over.

I thought something broke in the steering but everything to still bolted in place.

Got a call Damian is finished with the skid plate so I can pick her up tomorrow. I'll post a pic

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.
Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.
