I installed the family roll bar yesterday and it has the rear seat belts. the only way to attach the bottom part of the seat belt to the wheel well was to remove the Bestop Instatrunk black rear storage box that the previous owner put in. When i removed it I found other holes that were covered up by the trim of the box. looks like i got more holes to plug. but for now the seat belts are now installed and all i need to do is get a rear seat. Heres a picture of the back all cleared out.
Went offroading tonight with some friends and popped my tire going up a steep hill. luckily i had a spare which wasn't the right size but it got me home. looks like ill have to buy another 31" tire for the time being and eventually get 33s when the funds come in.
Took the spare carrier off tonight. I think not having the spare in the back makes the jeep body look higher instead of longer. Plus its easier to jump into the back without using the doors or climbing over the spare. saving up money for 33 inch tires, hopefully ill purchase them sometime this weekend.
Hey guys! A LOT has happened since the last time I posted on here. So Ill break it down for you. I took the pads off of the family roll bar. Put on some 32" bfgs which completely changed the look and stance of the jeep. I also re-painted the inside tub, steering column and the doors and door panels. Filled the holes with plugs I found at the junk yard. Found a set of four floor mats for 14 bucks and seat covers for 5.50 each. Makes the jeep much cleaner looking. Since the weather was nice I also took the side steps off and used the chrome bolts to fill the holes.
Been on a role lately with mods. First I added some new stickers to the quarter panels and windshield banner. Than I opened up the dashboard and cleaned out the gauges and wiped of the circuits to the clock, now the clock works! Had tan roll bar covers so I painted them black. I couldn't stop there so I sanded the hood decal and painted the center of the hood black. And I got a full size spare mounted to the tailgate! I couldn't help but to pull the hammock out and enjoy the nice weather.
Removed my yj flares and installed these tj flares I found at the junkyard for $10 each. Also bought some truck undercoating for the frame and under the tub. All I gotta do now is torch the flares and build my tube fenders in the front and I'm ready for summer.
Started to build a sport competition spare carrier on the roll bar. $35 worth of parts at lowes and 3 hours later. not finished yet but threw the tire up there to see how it looks. Only need some blue paint and its good to hit the trails.
