Looks great! what length is the string of led lights you used for the headlights? Did you just install them on the Grille or around the headlight itself? Any specific type of led's?
They have a standard length that they give off of superbrightleds.com and I got the side emitting ones. They have an adhesive backing and will tell you on the website which ones are waterproof and all I did was stick them to the headlight housing and tail light housing
At least I still have the Red Wings!
Well, it was easy, cheap, with beer qualified as fun.. Mod? ehhh, for but not on the jeep. I didn't like the straps so I took come chainlink fence tubing, eye hooks and foam insulation for pipes. Cost me about 5 bucks and I prefer it to the squeezing the straps did to the top.
Not super cheap but not bad. After rear gearing my Jeep my speedo was even farther off than before. I bought the right speedo gear and now it's right on. Even cheaper for me because I found one on eBay. 39.99+shipping regular, 25.00 w/shipping on eBay
Went to Walmart the other night after a long car ride and was browsing the store when I came across a few interesting things. First in the pic below is the Nylon strap 1inch x 60inch $1.something (cant remember exactly how much) that I found in the craft section. Next is the Buckle & Slider $.59 that I found in the camping section.
The nylon strap is long enough for both the doors and you will have some extra. And the buckle package has 2 buckles in it so its good for both doors also.
After a bit of cheap, easy, fun, creative, engineering heres the finished product:
My only issue is how long it will last, so I will post when it breaks. but hey its only $0.59 to fix it twice so who cares lol.
Random Guy: "Is there anywhere that thing cant go?"
Me: "Yea, past a gas station..."
Thats very interesting man. I need a new "bar" on the inside of my drivers side...the whole damn thing is gone, even the part it bolts too.

This is not really a mod, but more of an accessory.
One thing I've always like about the Wranglers and my old CJ-5 was the ability to lay the hood all the way against the windshield to give more room while working around the engine. I found it a pain to find something to to put between the hood and windshield to protect it. I was at Home Depot this weekend and saw some pipe insulation and had an idea...
So I picked up piece of pipe insulation and some 3/16" rod stock.
$4.89 later I had these....
Insulation cut in half and rods bent to shape.
Insulation pushed over the rods.
Hooked on the lip of the hood.
Protecting the hood and windshield.
I could cut them a little shorter, but I don't really have any use for the left over pieces so I left it as is.
I got the OrFab swing away tire & jerry can carrier but all it has is this tiny lip to wedge under the bottom of those CARB cans. Even with the lip and the top tightener I could see a can bouncing free. Since my cans are NATO style I fab'd up a rack that wraps around and uses the lip as a hinge I hammered mostly closed. Then sprayed it with bedliner. Still working on the cushioning to prevent scratches but over the open end I used 3/8" clear rubber tubing before I got too tired to keep messing with it. I did get my axe mount put in over the gas cans I found online somewhere and jury rigged it to bolt in those holes along the top.
thank u i was so worried that i might not like the look and then be stuck with it.. i bought at pep boys for i think 79.99 and from what i have seen its the average price. thats for a gallon of it and i used 3/4ths the can. planty left over for touch up when u do find some flaws. they have a sample piece glued to box so u can get an idea of the texture but it is way rougher. for the price u cant beat it. i wasnt goin to 4-800 for linex or rhino liner.. the first week i drove with towels on the floor cause i dindt want to scuff it. lol
I came up with a quick easy way to secure my sway bar out of the way when it's disconnected. I "acquired" some locking push-pins and washers from work, drilled a hole in each side of the frame rail, and insert the pin through the lower bushing of the sway bar link into the hole in the frame.
This, along with the sway bar quick disconnect mod I did last week, will make for a much quicker transition from road to trail to road.
