Ahhh.. don't these look nice... all shiny and finished. Just waiting for you to drop them in your door hinges, throw stuff in those cool bags, and spend the weekend driving that rig on some great local trails.... But no, you want to spend the weekend with a tube bender and an angle grinder.


Just kidding. Fab away. We sell paddle handle kits - I don't think through the stores, but you can get them by calling customer service. Make sure to tell them that you're too cheap to buy our products...

oh Hell..

I am too cheap to buy any products, don't feel feel left out...I just have too many projects going on...if I bought doors like this, I would have more money in doors than I do in the Jeep itself, started out looking like a two ton JunkYard Wars reject....(and it wasn't the winner)
..I guess I really should look around at different places for doors and such before I commit myself (or my wife has me committed)..I'll take a look
thanks

Voicewithin: I'm just giving you crap. I really admire people who fab up their own stuff, and I have some sort of weird attraction to Junk Yard dog Jeeps. Have you seen the post where the guy is trying to identify his "FrankenJeep"? It is, by any real measurement, a disaster. But I want it. It looks fun.

On a different topic: What happened to Junk Yard Wars? Is it gone? I used to watch that all the time, but it seems to have disappeared.
