Speedster TJ option

OK while the TJ is no quick... I found myself with a spare windshield frame and some idle hands... which tends to be dangerous...


cut down the frame... welded some caps to cover the ends... and cut some PC (about 6" high) ... and glued it into place... textured black rattle can finish...








granted you will want a set of goggles handy incase of rain and or bugs on the highway... but it has proven to be an absolute blast!

Why not just fold the windshield down?

- no really supposed to run more than 25MPHwith the windshield strapped to the hood...


- my H1 style intake does not allow for the windshield to fold down


- plus this option deflect some of the breeze...


- most importantly it looks s darn cool!

It would look ok without the cage and high back seats maybe. It just looks dumb now.

I'm going to tell them at your job that you're slumming it on JF while probably running Donald Trump's campaign.

So, no cigar for Hillary? Please tell "The Donald" to build the wall HIGH and charge Mexico Double to cross it and attend US schools, unless Sammy Hagar lowers the price of his Cabo Wabo Tequeila (sp?)

I have a set of CJ low back seats... almost Rover safari rig ...

I did it because I thought it would be fun... and it is...

besides most people would agree that I look dumb anyway! and that has never slowed me down!

Haha! Awesome! Keep on jeepin on man! Always comforting to find people who don't care what others think and do things for the fun/ell of it! ;-)

"Yeah well, that's just like...your opinion, man."
-El Duderino-

Mr. Madison, what you've just said ... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
