So pretty cut and dry did some custom tank set ups to match jeep 1 20lb with 125 static regulator for tools and filling and a 10lb with a 150psi for filling and reseating beads...
Figured I'd start carrying 2 bottles on runs so I can hand out the 10lb for other jeeps to fill up tires when we are done....make things a bit quicker.:thumbsup:

I'll make identical mounts for both sides and that way they are out of the way and I can still pack daily life back there....they are getting locked and a mesh sack with steel cable over regulator and top so they can't steal the reg or open bottle up....

Did a Rubicon decal and masked it on the smaller orange one, did a red one I'm going to sell...

All bottles are full and hydro bought and paid for as well....so no swaps on these....

They started life raw aluminum and now have some color...

Ha ha - I did the same and also added tail light guards, door handle guards, air deflector, grill inserts, rear cargo tray.

Need to rest up and add speakers tomorrow.

This is the first day with my new 2014 JKUR Flame Red....I wonder how long before I run out of money? :jaw drop:

You don't run out of money...you just find creative ways to come up with it.

So as mentioned on the previous page, took my top and doors off for the great fall weather and promptly encountered a drizzle. Well, this morning ma nature decided to finish off popping my rain cherry. Got to work and it started.

Spend $100 bucks on an emergency top. You'll use it.

Technically this was yesterday but I finished installing my tailgate table and quickfists. Very pleased with how it turned out and easy to install.

Still holding up on the soft top just in case it gets clear and sunny out. It did last weekend...but really procrastinating.

This may be a dumb question with an obvious answer, but I'm going to ask it anyways. I have an emergency top that has 3 clips on both sides that use the pinch seam to clip onto to hold it down. If I were to install a set of Rubicon rails, I'd essentially no longer be able to use that top since I'd have no way to fasten 6 of the 8 clips to the rails, right? Or has anyone come up with an alternate way to do this?
