Nice work man. I like the look and the support up top rather than the bottom. Is it the width of your Jeep? And you aint jackin my thread keep it up!

It's 20"x60", it'll probably be on the grand cherokee more than the TJ.
Not sure if I want to add a similar support structure across the back or not.
It seems pretty sturdy as is.
Might just add some tie downs, and call it done...

If what youre using it for is stable on it then I dont see any need for more support unless you want.more for aesthetics.

Thanks sycboi
