I built a custom pallet for my Jeep



I built it so that the amp that was installed beneath my rear seat sits inside of the pallet. The pallet protects the amp from damage and allows air flow when I am hauling stuff.

I've modified a couple mounting points for my GoPro camera.

One on the mirror relocation brackets.


One on my winch's fairlead.


I'm working on a mounting location or two on the undercarriage.

One of the guys on our trail ride last weekend had one of those. Amazingly clear and steady video. He use a suction mount since he had an XJ. I was thinking of getting one eventually for my roll bar.

There are different 'starter' sets whose mounts tend toward the type, such as; a vehicle package, a surf board package, a helmet package, etc... They are kind of expensive, but can occasionally be found on Amazon on temporary sales. The HD one I bought (1080p) averages about $300. There is a 960 version that is cheaper, maybe $100-$200? I was looking at the 960 because I didn't want to spend more than $100-$150.

I found the helmet package on sale for $250 (reg $300). The I saw a promotion offering $100 off a purchase on Amazon if you signed up for a year's worth of Audible.com, which is an audio book store. Since I was already paying month-to-month for a number of books I wanted (WoT & Game of Thrones series), I was able to get the 1080p helmet package for $150.

I have been using the lower resolutions most, because the file sizes are smaller or you can get more FPS, so I may have been happy with the 960. Although, I haven't put it in use on a trail ride yet, and I'd probably was as high resolutions as possible for those.

For mounting, I have been using size 10 (thickness, not thread count) bolts that I permanently attach to my Jeep. I quickly attach the camera with a wing nut.

It has been a fun little toy. The best part is that it seems to have been designed in the same spirit as Jeeps. I mean in it's ruggedness (thick protective case), water friendly (water tight case), and it's modability (multiple different types of attachments).

I also bought the suction cup attachment which was worth the additional cost. One of the helmet attachments allowed me to attach it to the roll bar that I used while parked, though I'm not sure how good it would have worked while moving.

Oh yeah, if you are thinking of getting one, then READ THIS WARNING! I, along with many other people, had issues with SD cards becoming defective during use with the camera. I would suggest updating the firmware to the most current version before using a big/expensive SD card. Then format the SD card. I haven't had any issues with the camera/card since then.

I have a Kodak PlaySport. Waterproof, HD video. Not as rugged as the GoPro, but you can get them well under $200. I never thought of mounting it to the Jeep. Great idea!

It will sag over time, especially with a full cooler. Perhaps a but of angle iron bolted side to side would reinforce it.

I did a ladder setup using angle iron to lay on the tub rails and box steel to run side to side.



I have holes drilled in the beams to support a trail rack.



Plans include expanded metal grating welded on to this (or sheet metal - haven't decided). With another bit of ladder work between the cage bars in back, it'd be rather secure. It is held in place by rounded head allen bolts that mount to the stock locations for the hard top bolts. The front end lines up with the point where the tub drops to the floor pans, so I'll be putting in a bulkhead in front as well. It's a living project.

The great thing about this is that for water proofing, I run my duster on top of the deck, but under the rack (I have 4 small holes for the bolts and the washers seal it up).

The rack can hold a cooler or it can hold my recovery gear while on the trail. I may add some additional tiedowns so I can use the entire surface area.

Total costs:
Metal from local scrap yard: $25.00
Welding and supplies: free (friend who welds)
Mounting bolts: $2.00
Rack: Already had, but can substitute cooler like above.

Where did you get the clamps for your Hi Jack?

Its the weekend again! Time for more updates.

Removed the rear fender covers from under the Jeep. Personally think it makes the lift look bigger.




Took some rattle can liner and sprayed my frame just to make it look a little better. Also will be lining my axels to make them black again. Not much in the way of easy mods left for this weekend. Hope next weekend I will be painting my interior black, we will see tho.

I have a pretty nasty dent in my hood too. It looks like some one fell on it or something idk, but that looks pretty sharp. Makes it look tough i think
