I used epoxy once to hold a garage door arm to a garage door once. If you get the HD stuff it really is amazing!

That is just the first one that comes to mind. I have used it before, but it will pretty much hold anything!!

Have heard this idea before and not really cheap but has any one done or seen someone replace their soundbar with those speakers in wakeboard boats those sound cannons they would clamt to the roll cage and be really loud and u would need an amp too. Thinking about doing thar when my speakers crap out but that could be years away

Never seen it in a jeep, but a few hardcore tube buggys I've seen had those, and they are LOUD!

if you just want the look you can buy one, or just put a bathroom grab handle on their, but a true stinger bolts into the frame, and replaces the front bumper

Are your flares trimmed too? And do you still have your rear jugs on?

Here is mine with a safari top. Actually works well together, you just have to run the straps for the safari top through the openings in the net..
