Any issues untorquing the (unpainted) Torx screws on the side of the window frame?

The previous owner actually put on windshield brackets and lights there. So I only had I torque bolt the other were Allen heads. They were kinda tight but they came out with pb blaster. My friend has stripped his torque for a mirror relocation bracket. So be careful

Me likey. I put one of those same lights tight up under the rear bumper on my pickup for way better off-road and general purpose back-up lighting, especially with the topper on it...and that's just with the one 55W lamp.
I never thought of putting two of these though a bumper. That's a good look and up away from probable damage. Looks like I have to get another set for the TJ.

Cheap, easy home made foot pegs

This topic may have been covered before, sorry if I'm duplicating.

I added some home made foot pegs ... made from some bmx bike parts, a few fasteners and some scrap materials. My kids love hanging their feet out of the wrangler while we drive!

Rear seat adjustments

IF YOU CAN'T READ THIS OR SEE THE PICTURES CLICK HERE
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...j_nrX1gfQ/edit


Parts needed

Superstrut 1 ⅝ in. x1 ⅝ in. x 10 ft. Metal Framing Channel or Superstrut 1 ⅝ in. Wide x 13/16 in. High x 10 ft. Long, 12 Gauge Metal Framing Channel, Gold Galvanized depending on if you want the seat raised 1 ⅝ inches or 2 ¼ inches.

16 GRADE 8 5/16th x ¾” bolt, nut (nylon stop), and washer.

6 Metric M10 1.5 40 Bolts


1 set Surplus Center - 900 PAIR ADJUSTABLE SEAT SLIDES
SEAT SLIDE PAIR Brand new, SEAT SOLUTIONS model 90000BK pair adjustable seat slides. Powder coat painted, Sturdy steel construction. Easily adapted to many seats.


SPECIFICATIONS
Positions 8
Travel 5-5/8" This is how far you seat will be to move when you done
Bolt Pattern Universal 11-5/8" max. depth center to center
Bolt Hole 5/16" diam.



1. Remove rear seat,flip up and pull out.

2 a. Remove rear seat brackets This can be very tricky. You will need a T50 Torx socket(At least I did with my 2006 Unlimited). Attach that to an impact wrench or a socket breaker bar. If you cant break it free spray some pb blaster and let sit then try again. Once you removed all 8 Torx head bolts, put them aside with the seat brackets.
2 b. With everything removed I have wanted to Bed liner the back of the unlimited. So thats what I did. I wrote up a procedure on how to do it. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...00mkZS_l8/edit
3. Cut the superstrut to (2) 15" pieces. Paint them to match seat brackets.

4. Attach the bottom of the seat slide to the top of the sign post . Use all GRADE 8 5/16th x ¾” bolt, nut, and washer. Use a bolt everywhere holes line up... at least 3 not a good place to cheap out.
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized %1%2.

5. Attach the rear seat bracket to the top side of the seat slider.

6. Attach the superstrut to the holes that the original seat brackets were mounted using Metric bolt m10 1.5(thread) 40mm that match the treading of the 8 Torx bolts you removed. One of those bolts will be able to go through both the superstrut & the bottom of slider.

7. Slide the top of the seat slider on to the bottom.

You now have a rear seat that is 1 ⅝ or 2 ¼ inches higher, great for under seat storage. can side 5 ⅝ inches toward the back door for your taller passengers.

Not sure if it's been posted already, but flush mount your tag. Remove the tag and plastic mount, the use the mount as a template to drill new holes in you tag, the mount to tub and bend to match the contour of the body, looks clean, especially if you already have flush mount led tail lights.

JP Magazine showed a company that made a "flush" plate mount, can't remember who made it though...

I like the part you put to keep it from rotating forward. I've been looking for a way to do that on mine. What did you use to keep it from rubbing the paint?

Hi, I had a fee questions about the "swivel stopper braces"

I made the swivel stoppers from two pieces of leftover metal.

They started about 8" long and 1.5" tall and the metal was pretty thick maybe 1/8" . Then I folded them in half with a vise for more strength and drilled holes. The big hole is 3/8" for the heavy bolt inside the peg.

The other end is a smaller hole around 1/8". I added a rubber padded bumper to that end with a small bolt to protect the paint. The bumpers were leftover rubber feet from an old dead blender.

Then we sprayed them with bed liner to match the rest of the pegs.

They work well. I noticed the jeep body sheet metal flexes in a little bit where the rubber bumper meet the panel when you push a foot on the peg. The metal flexes right back out. That body metal is more flexible than I expected.
