That wouldn't be that hard to do but the price won't let it happen. You'd be looking at 4 grand minimum to get the parts and harness.

So given the size and the amount of insulation you want, you want to be able to keep 3 sandwiches and 1 soda cold?

I just figured that if they were, you'd have to have a second windshield channel.
They convert into a bikini top that partially covers the back seat too. All you have to do is zip out the windows, which are bigger than the frame tops, and all you have left is a bikini/safari top.

I know it's more of a mod thing, i'm sorry, but if you could relocate the e-brake to a pedal under the dash like some vehicles have, and just unbolt the console. You could probably cram one of those disposable styrofoam coolers between the seats, and it would fit pretty snug.

Honestly, I'm planning on keeping my LJ forever, so I'd have no problem paying that price for say, a brand-new AW4 and the ancillaries if it would work without issue for a few decades

Non recessed skid plate holes(think of the recessed portions between the frame and the skid plate.

There is a lot of stuff I don't mind paying for either but that doesn't make it viable to develop into a product.

I do feel your pain though and as many AW-4 swaps as I've done, I should probably spend some time on the 03-04 and see what it take to make it doable.

Nice. While waiting for that to develop... just hang a leg outside while you're driving. Wind will shoot right up your pants/shorts leg. Not as good as a personal cool water mister, but better than nothing.

My two cents. I would like to see a modular storage system that would bolt in rear seat brackets holes (seat removed of course) . Ideally it would have provisions for cooler, locking compartment (tools, spare parts, etc), and 2 holes on each side to put upper door halves into out of the way.

I agree with the turret mount and underbelly armor. But i would love to see a Jeep TJ option for a single piece fold up soft top, or an insulated soft top option. One that could snap up to a soft top in the winter and be removed in the winter.

Always laughed at these comments. 2nd TJ, had never once snagged a belt loop. I must have been doing it wrong. I've got it figured out now...broke 2 in the last 2 days.

Visors that are actually big enough to block the sun.

They used to sell a green shaded, plastic visor that clipped to your vehicle's visor. When needed, you just flipped it down. It blocked most of the sun, and you could still see through the green shade.

An engine that's fuel efficient, but also torquey and reliable.
I dream of a day when my TJ can get 30+ mpg and still kick ass on the trails.

The Dana 44 rear should have been standard, not optional.

I remember at one point they sold one's that would slide back and forth too...but I can't find them anywhere. I just laugh and prop my hand up by using my aftermarket handles. Still it would be nice. I'll have to look for the flip down ones. Thanks!

I scoot my butt over so that the vertical windshield channel (near the inspection sticker & registration sticker) is in between me & the sun.

A plug and play locker/re-gear where you pull out what you've got and drop in the new carrier with all the pieces and parts. Of course, in my fantasy world, any necessary shims would come with the kit and all the engineering would be figured out for you.

If you're trying to stop better, you're starting from the wrong end. There are several rear disc conversions that have parking brakes that work just fine. They originate from the TJ, ZJ, and aftermarket copies of the TJ all of which are derived from the same backing plate.
