I also made a tray out of aluminum for small shit to keep up top.
Nice. Marines?

Hey guys, I check in here ever now and then to see what cool stuff everyone has been doing. I was curious to know if anyone has made any mods to accommodate their pets that cruise with them? If so, does anyone have pics of what they did? I'd like to see!

I'm in the process of painting my chrome mirrors black and I've sanded and primed it with self etching primer by duplicolor and it says to sand the primer. Why should I do this? Can't I just paint over it now with the duplicolor trim paint?

Thank you, on both accounts.
He loves the Jeep. He has come to associate it with having fun. Sometimes when I'm walking him I'll let him kind of lead where he wants to go... he takes me to the Jeep and then stands at the door and looks at me.
And he loves to stick his face out of the net.

The net runs right under $100 and it's easy to put on. Only down side is that you have to remove it or at least pop the bottom out of the tub channel to put the regular top on. But it only take a few minutes. Other than keeping the dog, it looks bad ass. lol

You could also go the spiderweb shade route in the shade cage, its a little bit more think I was quoted 149 for the ultra and 179 for the trail, but its serves multiple purposes, helps keep you and ur pets nice and cool in the sun plus it keeps them restrained plus it can be left on underneath the soft top with out having to remove anything. Check the vendor on here out krawloffroad over in the vendor section he has pictures of it . Just another option

did you use any kind of door trim around the cut edges, I think that would actually look pretty good

you could even remove and JBweld the brush out of the old center console (assuming you had one)

No but that's a great idea. Im planning on boxing off the e-brake from the inside so that small items in the can don't get in the way of the arm and so that in the event I ever get flooded out, the shit in the can will stay dry. I'm pretty damn content with the way it is now though

I made mine last week. I used bike pegs that my son took off. Cost me less than $7.

I've been thinking about doing my whole grill with plasti dip. What's the process?

I would assume the usual. A good cleaning , followed by a good fine grit sanding, wipe it down and start spraying, good tip for spraying would be to be patient, go with a super light coat at first and let it dry, just to give it a starting surface. You could prime it but I don't find it a must do if you take your time. But it wouldn't hurt either. Give Nice even coats. Let them dry fully between. And be patient!.. Good luck! Post pictures if you do it. Would love to see it all said an done.

I definitely will. How many cans do you think it will take?

I watched a YouTube video on it. He didn't say how many he used, but he did 3 coats.
