Thanks, much appreciated. This is starting to make me laugh, I've got more compliments on the jeep in the last 30hrs than I have in the last year.

im not so sure what my thoughts toward this are...
its cool, and different, but at the same time, other than the looks/wow-factor, i dont thing it adds any functionality...? i mean wont it be harder to get laerge things in/out of the jeep since you cant get as close to it with the gate in the way? idk.

looks nice and clean though. you clearly took your time. cool!

I have been thinking about this upgrade. It makes a nice seat, work surface, picnic table. The length of it isn't so much that it makes a huge difference getting things in and out IMHO. Of coursemI amused to my pickup truck too.

The Warn 8274 weighed down the front a bit so today I installed 1.25" Teraflex leveling blocks.

Man, I gotta install palm trees in my front yard. My jeep and my Harley in the drive turn heads and pull pu....well, they're panty droppers...but DAMN!!! I can't ever get them to wash my rides in the morning...might be cuz they wake up and find their clothes on the front porch. Maybe I should put a soapy water bucket, sponge, and hose along side the clothes next time?

I like out for a couple reasons, one is the seat, two is I may get rid of the tire carrier and this way I can put the spare in the back and have it hang out partially while bring supported, and finally it'll make it easier for my dogs to get in and out (with the rear window in place).
