hey thats cool... wonder if I could just do the black screen with out the incerts,, put them behind the slots ?
I think you could probably rig something up like that...I have seen them shell sheets on eBay for around $35-50 in different types of mesh for a grill and they are 2x4 foot sections so would be easier to use then the rain gutter cages which come in 3 foot lengths and are maybe 6" or so wide. I'm not 100% sure how you would fasten them...but sure there is a way if you could get behind the jeep grill...guessing it would have to be removed and then who knows what else...this was a fast easy under 1 hour fix I did. And I probably didn't even need the zip ties to hold them into place but figured I would use them anyway since they are black and blend right in...

Homemade half doors
The latch is a just a regular gate latch. The hinges are small barn door style that I ground the head off the pin and knocked it out with a center punch. Then I beat a piece of 3/8 steel rod into the hole.

howdy fellow jeepers.. so i was looking up a way to get my fishing rods to the river with my jeep, but all i could find was a front bumper mounted rod holder that cost 350$... so i went my own route. i took a board, made up my own measurements, and used some metal pipe mounts i found at home depot. for about 15-20$ in supplies and paint, i created my own little pride and joy. the rods stay in there spots, even my cane pole, and didnt even move from their holders at 75 mph on the highway (i even purposely hit bumps and potholes to test it out). i have two clamps i bent out off 2 pip holders the slide onto the back door, and then i get some small bungee's and take one on each side to a taillight guard, and one from the bottom of the rod holder to the tow hitch. i love it, its one of the best things iv made for my jeep
Where we're goin', we don't need roads..
Thanks! They're easy enough to do...you'd have fun with it! I think they look better than the billet inserts and are much cheaper too!
Go to Walmart and by one of those window screens that you put in the window when it's raised and take out when you close it. $7, sand the back of the grill and use your choice of heavy duty glue. I used a marine glue. It looks awesome and stands up to wind, carwashes, etc.
Axios... Then again, I wouldn't feel the way I do if I were.
Im going to have to add pictures later but, I have spent days upon days grazing this forum and my brain is in overload of all the things I want to do to my Jeep now! So first off thank you all for the ideas. I wanted to share a few very cheap things I have done with my Jeep. I took some spent .40 casings after shooting and simply glued them to my valve stem caps. I'd seen these in magazines, but they wanted at least 10 bucks for them. I'm even cheaper then that so all I had to do was go shooting with a friend and buy some crazy glue lol. I also bought a cheap holster from Walmart, the fabric kind, and screwed it to the back of my center console. I live in AZ where we can virtually conceal and carry anywhere. The holster I carry is in the small of my back and I sweat to much with my firearm there and it is unbelievably uncomfortable. I'll add more when I think of them and post pictures!
Yours may go fast, but mine will go anywhere!
