Today was another long day of installations, and wiring. Here are some of the things:

Antenna X, with a twist, I noticed its nothing more than a standard 2' whip, with an adapter to fit the jeep antenna lug, so I took them apart and added a heavy truck antenna spring.



Next step installed the rear rampage bumper.




Modified the stock third brake light, made a bracket for it to mount inside the spare.


Mounted the offroad whip flag, and the cb antenna.




Button up the wiring tomorrow, and hopefully take it out for a spin.

Search for a Moab edition. Would be essentially the same. Maybe a more flat black but would give you a good idea.

Nice work - how did you make the 3rd brake light bracket? I have the same rims and need to relocate mine

Well lets say I used a lot of farmers modifications!! A extra cb bracket that I had lying around, some closed cell stick on foam insulation to cushion the rim from the bracket so I didn't scratch the rim.

Cut the light part off of the jeep mounting bracket with a dremel tool and cut off wheel.

Cut the 29ltd cb bracket in half, drilled holes to match the spacing on the light. Cut a hole out of the center of the new shortened bracket to feed the power plug to the light.

Used the stock screws to mount the light to the bracket. Covered the screws and exposed bracket with the foam padding. And zip tied it to the back of the rim.

Figured this was the quick and easy way of doing it, quick removal if I need the spare, cut the zip tie, and unplug the light.

Not a "professionally" made piece with high dollar jeep tax included!! :-) total cost to me: one zip tie, one dremel tool cut off wheel.

I wanna know more about that olive bag that looks to be holding a mossberg 500 on one side and a machete on the other... And also some detail photos of your ax/shovel mount.

Shotgun scabbard is from sportsmans guide I think. Comes with a cheap machete but I replaced it with a Gerber. Ax and Shovel mount are just Heavy duty Velcro tape from ace, I plan on getting something better but this is working for now. I'll get some close ups of both if you like.

Lined the interior with Monstaliner. Just realized I missed a couple spots on the second coat and hope what little bit I have left in the tub isn't dried out already.

Then I hit 2,000 miles since July 27th!

Those wrap-around pads that, when wrapped around the seat belt between the B pillar and the seat, drastically reduce seat belt flutter when the windows are down/doors are off.

These were the ones I found at Wal-Mart for a few dollars.

Was trying to be cute referring to them as "cozies"
