I know there's somebody on 1 of the forms that painted his whole soft top and it's held up for years.

I added a 300mm Broadway mirror to my Jeep. You can get them cheap and it's a clip-on.

Just a sample from amazon.

One of my mods was to get the ugly black solenoid box off of my winch and mount it under the hood. It was a simple mod and made the front of my Jeep much neater and slimlined.

Before relocating my solenoid box...

And here's another simple mod. I made a pull rope out of parachute cord and attached with a small Clevis ring.

Now that's cool! First time I've seen paracord used as a winch cable pull handle.

The loop is a good idea as long as it doesn't get hooked on something while wheeling (just a thought) ... And I also like your bumper!

I thought the same thing when I put it on this morning. I might hook it on the end of the bumper and then tighten the winch down after that.

Thanks much! They are Iggee seat covers. They've been good ones. I've had those on about 4 years now. Just ordered another set this week so they should be on in a couple of weeks.

Clips directly on to the existing mirror. I'll snag a couple pictures tomorrow when there is more daylight.

From the Iggee website. And the fronts
will cost you $195 for the set. My back seat is still holding up great since it doesn't get as much action. I think the front and back are $300.

Best seat covers ever! keep a chamois with you and when its time to go just wipe them dry and youre ready to drive. my only gripe is that they dont breathe well so it gets hot on a long trip. other than that I cant say enough good things about mine.

Finally got around to cleaning up the wiring for the third brake light. Had an old halogen fog light and wired it in to the reverse lights. Added something extra to the center post too.
