Bought these windshield mounts at a local jeepers 4x4 shop right as the owner was removing them off his yj. Wanted 40, I gave him 20. Painted them and ill have them mounted by tomorrow.

Custom Oh $4** Handles...

Put in these custom grabs made of braided parachute cord. The black handle portion is made of cord that is both reflective and glows in the dark. Hope to get a photo whiz to get some better pics. Here goes for now....

^Cell phone cameras won't really pick it up terribly well, but go into your "settings" option and look for a setting called "ISO". Turn that up to the highest number it has, then set your "Exposure Value" all the way up to +2.0. Get that handle glowing bright with some bright light, then shut off all the lights and snap away.

My iPhone camera makes my old digital camera look like a joke. Plus I can upload in a snap with the WF app.

Well, I'm giving the rear shocks another try today. Maybe I can get that done and move on to fix my 4WD.

Replaced my gauge lights with green LED's. Looks alot more green in person than in the pics. I'm very happy with it. Very easy to do and I did a much needed cleaning.

Yeah, looks good. SMS question as red rock, where did you get them from? I replaced my about 8 years ago with be bulbs, but I like your look better.

Busy busy day! And awful pictures, I know. But I painted my rims, grill, hood and fenders. I also installed my diamond plate back corners and my sound bar inside.

Comment from my brother: that brown top is awful!

I know it's bad but can't afford a new one right now on a student/bartender salary. Has any one tried fabric spray paint? I might try that next.

I've used it on interior pieces. If you try it be sure and post. I found some soft upper doors with slider windows that are spice colored and I wanted to paint them black. I hate to spend $300.00 0n them and have the paint screw up! Jeep looks great!!

Finished replacing my shocks today. Had some trouble matching up the back until I comfirmed that my jeep IS lifted which is why what I orig had was too short. Lesson learned.

Looks pretty awesome! I have also used fabric spray paint in minor portions on interior stuff, but not on a soft top. Interested to see how it comes out if you try it.
Keep us posted

Wired mine up to tow a trailer as I picked up an old toyota bed trailer with a topper for camping, pics to follow when I get a new camera. Cleaned all the crap out of it, gave it a good cleaning. Now I need to get new glass for the back door of the topper, hell the local shop wants $200.00 for glass! Are they nuts or what??

Better pics. Tell me what you think. Bolts look messy because they were painted over and most of the paint was removed when i removed them -.- PO had them painted over. Also, excuse the ugly wiring. I took these pics before I repositioned the wiring and used wire looms.
