Looks like a fun place to wheel. I definitely would've gotten stuck haha. I ended up babysitting some buddies the night before... Until 4pm the next day. Wish I could've made it

Just out of curiosity why do you run your weights on the outside of your wheels?

Decided i didnt like the way my old tire carrier turned out and didnt have much room for gas can mounts so i ripped it off and went in a different direction. This is what i got so far. Its going to be a fold down. I got the upper mounts installed yesterday. After everything is fitted ima brace all the brackets and clean them up and paint them. Next is the bumper mounts....


Btw it took me 4 cigarettes and 2 beers to grow a pair and drill into the body. Lol

Sounds interesting and I like the way you think; always looking for ways to improve on what you have and how things look is a priority too.

How about larger pics next time so we can see more detail; sure would hate to see you lose your JK of the Month status because of a pic infraction.

Here i blew it up for ya. Sorry. Here is the almost finished product. I got it to the point to where i can use it with a strap to hold the tire. Next plans are to brace it some more and an actual lug mount for the tire. I had to call it quits and turn in for the night. Much better. Next is jerry can mounts and highlift mounts. I atleast got my cb antenna back on
