I saw guys doing that with paintball masks This past Sunday. I got the bruises to prove it.

The front I have good old zip ties holding mine in. The back I didn't do anything yet, I am thinking Rhino Liner. But with that I have to really plan ahead and not drive the Jeep for 24 or 48 hours. I am thinking of trying undercoating to see how that works.

Hey now, don't be hating that our Jeeps are MERICAN!!!! Take your Jeep back to its homeland of maple syrup and hockey eh! And maybe open door Jeeps did work in WWII, but your Jeep does work on the bunny slopes. Leave the real trails for the grocery getters! WP!!!!!

Haven't seen your Jeep shared on any Jeep Facebook pages lately.....

Yup - I'm at the point where its ready to be lined now but of course it rained and I left the jeep out last night so its kinda wet! Took the time to clean out the wells so I;m kinda in progress now - I was hoping to finish it today and be ready by Sunday for a run...

I may of exaggerated free. Kyle told us about a special that merchants is running, 3 year plan with unlimited alignments for $180. They don't care if you bring your rig in every day, every week, whatever. Plus it is transferable, I already have done 2 in a months time. After 1 more than it would be considered free. Worth checking out.

Welcome!! I am quite new to this scene as well. I can say that this group of people have been great to meet and very helpful with their knowledge. Look forward to meeting and riding with both of you soon!
