if you get a spring it may wip forward and hit your tub my radio antenna has a spring in it and it wips back and forth quite a bit but its farther back than yours so I don't have to worry about it hitting the tub

I just got the dremel out and cut the recessed part of the grill out until the rubber grommet fit inside not a ton of trimming but if you go this route make sure to get led bulbs for your fender turn signals or they will not blink

Sweet thanks. I don't have side markers right now. I have cut fenders. I can pick up a cheap 1" or bolt style led for the sides if I had to.

Thanks

I made a replacement rear lift gate, I broke the Plexiglas one that came on the hardtop.
This one is more like privacy glass. I still need to get the seal around the edge and I am going to use a door sweep along the bottom.
A replacement lift gate is very expensive, I made this one and have enough material to build another one after this one is trashed. It is a Palram green house panel, same material as safety glasses.

Thanks it was something i got when i went and picked up my ammo can, im working on that still, its mounted im just looking into doing some extras to it, im going to put either a lemon grenade or a pineapple grenade on my 4 wheel drive shifter, i found a nut that would fit the threads on the shifter and welded to the grenade and it threaded right on, im going to smooth out the welds later

It just kinda happened. I couldn't find my grenade so I grabbed the next thing at hand. It was a good fit so I went with it.
I like it, it's comfortable and I know I pulled the trigger on it but aside from that I think I would have preferred the grenade.

Took it out to play. Hit the hard trails with the big boys! I missed a lot of good picture opportunities though.

here is a link to some that are the closest I could find in that brand, and I told you wrong they are liberty 2 brostom seats, they cost an arm and a leg just for one which is why I pulled them from a truck probably find some or some like them in a truck graveyard would be your best bet if you don't want to spend a fortune, mine brand new are 500 dollar seats but I paid 130 for the pair

Thanks for the info. yeah, maybe used I could do but those are expensive new. My original seats are in really good shape except the drivers seat vynil is starting to crack a little. I'm considering re-covering them.

yeah either recovering or finding used ones are best, there was no fixing my drivers seat the railing under it was ripped off and it looked like a mountain lion got ahold of it and was held down by a ratchet strap my passenger seat wasn't near as bad but I want them to match lol
