Good work with the muffler relocation...I was the fool that paid several hundred more than you for the pre-made MBRP...kicking myself now

Staying tuned-in for when your rack goes to market...looks fantastic

I will leave L.A. on thursday the 29th and should be in Englewood by mid-day on friday.
I hope to have a little get together with all the Denver area JK'ers on friday or saturday night
PM's will go out tonight to everyone that I can think of.

You guys' are great
This is absolute proof that if you build it they will come!
I built it and you're all here wanting more
I really need to make a batch of ten or more racks to get a real handle on pricing. I also need to design in a couple of separation joints to allow break-down for easy shipping. My problem is that I'm a perfectionist and every single day I re-design the whole damn thing!

jim,
i have been looking at racks for a while now, but have not been impressed by any of them. i was just about to pull the trigger on the congo cage as this was one rack that did not require drilling and suited some of my needs, but never liked how the two center rails went over the soft top. I just discovered pictures of your rack, which i immediatley gravated towards due to the design. As i read some of your descriptions regarding not having to remove any bolts to put soft top back, I thought to myself.... i need this rack!
I am very impressed in the overall design and would really, really would like you to build one for me. I do not know what your plans are regarding selling or manufacturing these, but I am very interested inpurchasing one from you.
sorry for any mistyping - on my ipad.

Hey Jeff,
I got the PM's with your info and I will give you a call next week.
I want to get some materials and get the basic parts for a few racks made before we talk so I can get a better handle on the time involved and a basis for pricing.
Thank you very much for your interest and I'll talk to you soon
Same goes to you Mike (molshove)

This afternoon I had the privilege of being interviewed by a group of researchers for Jeep. It was a very detailed interview discussing my whole life leading up to and including the purchase of my JK with the reasons behind and details of the modifications that I have made as well as the types of wheeling I do now and will be doing in the future.
I had a great time sharing this information and in the end was given the opportunity to say a few words directly to Jeep via video
I hope that my input will help to improve the Wranglers of the future while maintaining the historic integrity that we all know and love!

You told them that their next redesign should include cappucino maker, massage seats, and a unibody, right?
