What do you mean by door strap? The strap the stops the door from swinging out or the actual handle? If its either of those your talking about then yes I've seen a few posts of people doing that with paracord.

I have a set from Skippy Customs with matching grab handles.

Still trying to figure out how to mount them. I will work on them again next week.

Woah...My wiper switch looks like the new one. But turning the knob on the end doesn't seem to do anything... Ive been trying to figure out what it does since I got my jeep. Help?

I changed my factory antenna w/ one from AntennaX. $15.99 and no problem with reception.

I like low profile look of the shorter antenna

I spent $20 for wiring.. My friends gave me a complete sound system since they upgraded their systems in their cars.






I plan on relocating the amp and possibly the subwoofer to gain more space in the back for my tool box.

For anyone with a dog whose passed on like me, I took her collar and hung it on the rearview mirror. However, I cut a piece of window liner and taped it along the metal buckle of the collar so that way there's no chance of the collar cracking the windshield if it hits it fast and hard

Just a loop of paracord works great and is strong enough, or you can cobra braid (like a survival bracelet) it to make it perty.

Yeah I meant as a door limiter strap, because I replaced mine when the driver's snapped with the 6.99 ones from quadratec, and the idea of paracord never even crossed my mind. It would be stronger too.

I will certainly do this in the future (hopefully a long ways away!)

Dude the pull knob is a classic! Don't get rid of it. That's what separates the jeeps from the cars

If I remember right. It says not to put them on if it's under 75 degrees.
