lookin' nice

I am waiting to see how you incorporate a GI can onto that carrier.. I can see the high lift, shovel and ax mount but I am stumped on the GI can without blocking your tail light. I want to do something like this to my TJ with two GI cans, one for water and one for gas. I was thinking along the lines of the old S10 tire carriers that went all the way across the back and attached to the body on the both sides.
Good work, keep it up.

hey, thanks alot. Ive been thinking alot about the GI can And I think I just figured it out yesterday. I wont be moving the hi-lift to the carrier but I was definitely thinking about the shovel and ax. Its going to be a couple weeks until I get more in depth with it though, but I will definitely post the results and how I did it. Thank you for reading.

well, its going to be a little while before I can post up any pictures of my progress. I have to wait for my insurance claim to go through because some jack *** decided to steel all my **** out of my jeep last night. I normally dont keep to much in there but yesterday after me and the lady got back from a ride we forgot to grab our stuff. This morning i went out to grab my camera and it was gone along with my GPS, nook color, Ipod, and sun glasses. In total over 600$ of stuff gone.:brickwall. My insurance policy says it will cover up to $1,000,000 worth of property but we shall see when they call me back tomorrow.

Anyways, This weekend I was able to replace my timing chain tensioner and timing bumper. I also found out that I need a new exhaust manifold gasket because its blowing out hot air right where the manifold meets the head.

And I went out to home depot and got a grade 8 steal mail box lock and put it on my center console, hopefully that will deter thieves or give them a hell of a time trying to get in.:2thumbsup:

Good news on the stolen items, they are all covered under my renters insurance!!!!

I made a bikini plus top and really wanted to show you guys so I used my laptop web cam. lol. In total it cost me about 60$ for all the material. Im sure I could have bought one for about that but I wouldn't have been as happy with it as I am with this one.

So here it is....

Looks great. I'm actually looking at making my own as well. I was thinking about using some sort of tinted plexi glass so it sill be rigid. The last one I has bowed in the middle due to rain.

Its great that you are knocking up everything yourself. Great initative gives you so much more pride in oing all the hard work yourself..

Now get a big F'n dog and cattle prod to fix the low lifes that took your stuff........ Hope the camera memory card was clean, or check you tube you may see theidiots have posted some of your pic's or vid's....

Great work keep it up.

thats a good idea are you planning on painting it black? If so I would be leery of it warping from the heat. Yesterday I went to go put armor all on the bikini and the stuff burnt right off, I had to spray it down with a hose so it would be cool enough for the armor all to say. It was sitting in the sun all day, it might be good to what temperature those will warp at, but obviously if you kept it clear or another color it would be fine.

Yeah it suck because I have absolutely no idea of who could have done it but I tell you what, if i see anyone F-ing around my jeep now ill be like a dog on a steak. Thank fully I didn't have any really personal stuff on the cam, mainly pics and vids of the jeep that have all been uploaded to the computer.

That is my all time favorite thing about building my jeep, I can use my imagination and do what ever I want. Next weekend is custom tube fenders and then re-upholstering all my seats, black outsides and blue centers.
