I put some storage boxes on my tire carrier tonight. I used a couple of ammo cans, welded some L brackets to them and drilled and tapped the rails on the carrier to bolt them on. I also added some velcro straps to hold a 4-way and camp shovel on the back of the rear seat...



Pay no attention to the 4-way in this pic. I moved it. One can has a tow strap, a couple ratchet straps, a couple heavy D rings and rags in it. The other can has extra hoses, a fan belt and various emergency repair parts in it.




Had to block the glare from my plate with my hand from the flash...




Here are the shovel and 4-way on the seat.


I also took some 2" velcro and strapped in another ammo can. This one had a 12v air pump and a tire plug kit in it.

Thanks! No priming or sanding necessary with plasti dip. You just gotta wash off the dirt and let your Jeep dry before you spray it on. It's like a rubbery coating that goes over it. I like it because it gives that flat look, and if you accidentally spray something you can just peel it off. If you decide to use it for something spray a test area to get the feel for it. It's easy and I recommend it but it's not like a regular rattle can spray paint.

Plasti-dipped the headlight bezels, plasti-dipped the rear bumper, and tinted the taillights. I've been waiting since Christmas to do all this soooo happy with how everything turned out!

Yes the brake booster line is bigger and it's supposed to distribute more evenly across the intake. Seafoam recommends 1/3 in the booster line, 1/3 in your crankcase (a couple hundred miles before the next oil change), and 1/3 in the gas tank to pull any built up water out.. I did all of that and am pleased with the results

It's a multi-purpose internal engine cleaner. Check out their website for all the details and pick up a can for about $10 at AutoZone.

It's an 1988. The storage is awesome. I can still put a ice chest behind the seat. Next is a cage and Bimini top for the summer jeepin!

No problem. Good luck and don't let all the white smoke scare you.. It will quit after a few minutes of running with a little throttle...

Finally finished the lift on my '95 YJ. Installed a RC 2.5" last Saturday, and ended up with driveline vibration, but ran out of time to do anything about it. Besides, had to soak the t-case bolts all week. Lowered the t-case and installed the steering stabilizer today.
Next step, some new black Pro Comp wheels, and new tube bumpers.

What do you mean red? I was going to cut off both mounts and make new, stronger ones. They had been repaired by the po and it wasn't the best job anyways. Oh, I love the storage idea. I may have to borrow that idea.

I just fixed my broken windshield a couple weeks ago (new frame and everything).... Went out last night and my brother-n-laws head kind ended up breaking it again plus my rear view mirror... Maybe next time he will pay a little better attention when wheeling and not worring about opening another beer. haha Then later in the trip i broke my steering linkage when going through a rough section of trail....was not a good night. So that leaves me with my next question i was having problems with bump steer so is there any heavy duty steering linkages out there that could help with that? I have about 8 inches of lift and i cant go faster then 40mph on the roads it sucks. Id like to be able to use it as a second vehicle if i need it and cant.

Mount the shocks to the outside o the frame rail. Box in the frame rail like guys do on the tJ for more flex. There's a few write ups on how guys do it in the builders corner. Cool deal on the seat riser. Works great and I'm 6' tall and still had enough head room to sit in the back.
