That's the exploded view of it with measurements. Used 1 inch tubing on all of it except the 3&3/4 tabs up front which are 1 inch flat stock and the piece of 1 inch angle iron at the rear. I drilled and tapped holes up front to go through holes in roll bar and drilled holes in rear angle iron to fit hose clamps through it, drilled and tapped holes for cb mount. All metal is 1/8
man freaking awesome!!! i have so much 1" tubing laying around, all i need to do now is dust of the welder and attack the project haha...

Thank you so much!!

You're welcome. Only drawback is having to take the cb rack off to unlatch my hardtop but I can handle taking it out 2 times a year

I have been working on getting my full doors working and after ordering a couple of parts I needed I then realized I forgot an important piece. It was the retaining clip for the door lock cylinder. My set of doors only came with one lock cylinder so I needed another clip. So I decided to look around the shop to see what I could find to make one. I ended up using a piece of metal banding
Nice idea, I used some 2" banding to make some speaker adapters for the dash..

Banding, metal strapping that secures objects to a pallet or other surface.

Yea ig when u look at it like that but ifk I'm only 6' so 2 inches taller and it seems like it would b way to small to get comfy enough to go to sleep. Seems it would b more comfy to just sit in the seat and recline it back

Trust me, sleeping in the seat is miserable. I did it once and I woke up constantly because of the lack of circulation in my legs caused my the seat ledge.

Same thing for me. Tried to fold my passenger seat up and curled into the back of my TJ, fell asleep, then woke up with cramps all over my body. Painful!

Added in the Quickfist™ clamps to secure my axe and shovel on the tailgate. Used 3/16 LONG RIVETS to attach to the tailgate. Love it way more than the velcro I had before. Oh and Herculined the gate.

They are indeed the quickfists and they're the int clamps you'll find like them and only via the intraweb lol trust me. I looked at Home Depot lowes ace ad every other possible place. Just bite the bullet and order from QF or I got mine from I think 4wheelparts for around $10 a pair. I used long rivets to secure them because there's no way to get a nut into the tailgate.

Why not just use a self tapping screw? I used one under my seat to secure my flashlight and its solid as can be.

Velcro straps. Works great. Drove 5 hours and went wheeling with a shovel and ax strapped to the side roll bars
