Also had an idea with another style of mirror the ones with rides that have flat ends in them, you could take out the screw nob that holds the door shrouds on and use it to hold the rod in place. Know what I mean? Lol hard to describe.

Instead of rhinolining, for the time being, we've made use of a bed liner that was in my dads dodge duly before he had it rhino lined a few years back, and just used shears to trim as necessary for the bed and back seats.

The stock console cupholders are in a very inconvenient location because if I have a drink in them, I can't just let my leg relax, I have to hold it up and away so that the cup doesn't break, so for now, I found these adjustable cup holders that do just fine for normal driving, and I can fit as big a drink as I want in them, and they don't get in the way at all.

Here's my solution to mirrors with the doors off. The mirrors were $9 each, so the whole thing cost me less than $25. All it took was 2 mirrors, 2 long bolts that fit into my hinges, 2 metal washers, 4 rubber washers, 2 nuts, and a little bit of JB Weld. I used JB Weld to set the washers midway up the bolt, so I could have the mirror lifted off the hinge a bit. The rubber washers keep the mirrors from vibrating when I am driving.

The first two pics are of the drivers and passengers side mirrors from my drivers seat. See, the dash doesn't block the passenger side one!

The last picture is the sweet grab handles I made using LilYeller's tutorial.

When I bought my tj from the dealer I work for, it came with one of thos. not a big fan of stick on scoops but, that's my opinion. Also when you take them off it wrecks the paint with the double sided tape.

2x$6 plastic dip cans
All four flares
$19 shower bar from home depot
Not sure if I like the dip in the front but prob cuz it was last minut and I prob should have removed all the pieces and dipped them separately. But all and all not too bad.

I built this over the weekend. All the materials cost me $65 at Menard's. I wish the carpeting matched better but it's what they had. Since the picture I have added the bottom lining to the shelving unit. The whole idea was to make a shelfing unit to house the two front hardtop panels without really using cargo space. It always works as a DIY trunk too. I think I would like to cover the top with non slip rubber sheet.

It is about 10-12 inches tall and can hold upto 230 pounds. It's solid. Not bad for a girl!

>< Medium Density Fibreboard. Basically a type of wood that swells when it gets wet, it doesent like the outside too much is all. so is the next mod going to be a sliding drawer for all those shoes you have?

The shower bar was a great idea!
