Nice, what kind of support do you have behind it for the radio?

Did this a while ago. Finally got pics. I found a insta-trunk on craigslist but wanted a little more storage room. I bought some 3/4 inch shelving brackets from home depot and a 3/4 inch piece of plywood I had laying around. I screwed the brackets flush with the wheel wells and slid the plywood in. After painting it and screwing on some old jeep floor mats I had, it makes a nice enclosure for my speaker set up......









Also, a great way to avoid marks from the tailgate bar on the rear window when you roll it up is take a section of pipe insulator from any home improvement store and place it over the bar before rolling it up. No pics yet since my top is folded down. Next time I have it up, I'll get some pics.

Under $75. Painted my rims, grill, badges, and the indented section of all the interior door panels. I used anthracite black plasti-dip with a few coats of matte clear to help strengthen the dip. It is not the most permanent paint as a few large bugs at 70mph have nicked up the grill a little, but it's fun to do because if you screw up or don't like the finished product you can peel it off.

If you do the doors with plasti-dip cut around the edges with an exacto knife otherwise when you peel off any excess it will keep peeling off the area you want covered as there are no sharp edges for the dip to separate itself on like it does on the badges. Also very light coats or it will pool.
Sorry the lighting isn't the greatest.

Yeah, I can't make anything out. Maybe it's my phone. I'll try my tablet later. Thanks, though.

DIY Mesh Shade Screen Top for your Wrangler

I based this project off of the SpiderwebShade products. I love the way it came out and driving in the hot sun with the top off is so much better, especially when I hit traffic! Check out my video on my website for how to make it yourself.
Pet Screen $20
Grommets with Kit $11.25
Ball Bungees $9.95

I guess this only cost me about $30-40. Did it about two and a half months ago, and it's holding up great so far. I think it was just three cans of spray can bedliner and a couple hours. So much less work than pulling the entire interior out, but still covered all the important stuff.

I did that with my TJ but had to use a smaller can because of the location of the E-Brake. It is a good way to pick up some extra space.
