Driver side break line=broken (some metal thing rubbed through it and if eventually gave out according to my dad)

Day=crappy.

Nice!! I got it from crutchfield for $120 total. I was impressed with the sound for such a cheap deck and stock speakers.

Have one made. Our local sign shop made a decent sized decal for my wife for under 10 bucks.

I have the bluetooth model in my Blazer, and I put the model you have in my brother in law's F150. They do have good sound.

I work at an airport, and found a plastic galley bin laying in a trash pile, and decided to liberate it. I thought I could make something out of it. And I was right! Sorry I didn't take any pictures before cutting it, but you get the idea. I installed 3 screws with spacers inside the tailgate, cut holes to match in the bin, painted it black, and attached it to the tailgate as a quick release recovery gear stowage bin.

























It was originally about twice as tall. I cut it with a sawz-all so it would fit under the insta-trunk. I love that it has 7 vertical grill-like indents, makes it look like it was made by Jeep!! It holds plenty of tools, a tow strap, a tire plug kit, tie down straps, a syphon hose, duct tape, a couple rags and a pair of gloves, and still leaves me room for other stuff in the back. And I can remove and reinstall it in seconds, with no tools.


Total cost=NOTHING!!! Gotta love free $#it!!

Stowed the required (for Over Sand Vehicles) gear in my TJ for a visit to the Assateague National Seashore. Unfortunately I'm off on a business trip tomorrow - but as soon as we return...

powertrip you should make a lid for it so when you bounce around on the trail your equipment will stay in the bin but besides that it looks very cool

Took a vacation day to go play. ended up changing the oil and taking our teacup Yorkie to the vet. more expensive then wheeling, not nearly as exciting.

It fits pretty tight underneath the insta-trunk, that will keep stuff from bouncing out.

But yeah, when I take the insta-trunk out, I will need a lid for it.

Changed front and rear Differential fluid with 85w-
140 after 500 mile breakin on the new gears. Still hate the smell of that stuff (of course the anti slip additive for the rear isn't any better).

Installed my new KC fog lights; and had a brand new set of BFG All Terrain tires put on. I switched to them from the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar. Such a better ride for the way I use my jeep.
