Don't laugh but I used zip ties to create loops to hang my drycleaning from the roll cage.

A man has to work to be able to buy parts, ya know. And sometimes work means not having wrinkled shirts.

That Sucks! But being in Florida I think I woulda been more concerned with a stray gator or two coming along while I was busy with the winch!

The speakers on the floor seemed like a good idea at the time. Oh well they are marine rated but I doubt theyre SUBmarine rated, we will see tho lmao.

Its a Garvin Wilderness rack. Very nice Craigs list find, traded some factory stuff for it.

Purchased the TJ 2 weeks ago and have put over $6500.00 in mods not including the GoPro and mounting accessories. Wow I know what you mean It's A Jeep Thing I can't stop lol. The funny thing is I'm a Service Director for a Land Rover Dealer.

Hey Lil, I'll take some pics that are detailed and close up tomorrow for you I was really happy with how it turned out. I hit Home Depot and bought steel clamps that were rubber coated. They were in the plumbing section. The circular clamp part was perfect but the body was about 12" long. Got some tin snips, bent the rubber covered steel to fit the shovel, drilled some holes for a locking screw and viola! Cost about $5 total and took 20 minutes to do!

Hey guys i have 2 Chrome bumpers. you can see the front in my picture. they match but the people before me had one on back and one on front. the front has a minor dent in it and the back is good to go. both are a little scratched which is why i was planning to paint them. i removed the rear one for a hitch attachment and the front is gonna get swapped with a smittybilt SRC bumper and SB winch. i'm planning on painting them flat black and putting them on Craigslist when i get back from deployment here in a few weeks but i thought i'd give y'all first dibs. i live in jacksonville, Florida. i can deliver if not to far (5 hrs maybe more if it's worth it), pickup, or ship if there is anyway to ship something this big without paying an arm and a leg. i will post more pics when i return home.

Hooked up my new sound system.

Kenwood Excelon Headunit
Kicker fronts
Nalin 5.25" conversion plates
6.5" Kenwood sound bar speakers
Rockford Fosgate Amp
Sundown 10" sub sealed box.

My jeep now sounds like a concert. I am thoroughly pleased.

I will keep that in mind. i figure black will sell a little quicker. cause even though chrome is for some. its not for a jeep. mud and chrome don't go well.

Either one will work, but I expect that the bedliner would hold up better. Thank you for your service, we wouldn't be where we are today without you.

What is the process for doing these lights? I've been considering for a while.
