I like it! Do you think it is strong enough to sit or stand on it?

I was sitting on it. The wires rated to 935 lbs. I am going to add 2 more hinges this weekend as i only have 2 at the moment. I am also getting spacers so there will be no play. Id say me and the gf will both be able to sit on it when im done.

yeah the whole jeep is going to look hideous for awhile.. i also think i am removing the front bumper and winch also to cut the frame this weekend. It will be bare as hell and have massive gaps in the rear lol.

its probably going to be a weird comp cut to so i can leave in the tail lights in the meantime to stay street legalish... ill have to see.

I think you can still make it look pretty nice if you do it right

Well started the comp cut. Figured moving the gas filling tube would be a piece of cake... Ive been wasting like the last 3 hours on it. I thought itd be rubber, but its 95% steel. So i had to cut out all the old and get rubber. Should have left this until I got a fuel cell as ill probably have to redo a tad bit of the hose. At least later i wont have to worry about the evap hoses...











The lights look weird, but will keep me street legal till i decide to get armor and finish it all off. Not doing that though until i know where axles and so on will be and after i check clearance.

As small as the curve is just make squared off edges....there's not a down word compound curve....looks good now far you going to stretch it.

I'm planning on making my own and personally plan to have them with some nice approach angles. Should be a fun project

Ill possibly have to cut that compartment out to fit the uptravel of the 60 depending where the axle ends up it may be in the way. Ill also be double triangulated. I have to measure yet, but ima see if i can fit the fuel cell behind the seat under my air tank.
