And here it is with the top down, definitely gives it that classic look and a unique feeling.

The pictures are kinda small when I click on them. I couldn't really get a good look at the color. What did you use? I really like the theme you went with.

Really? The pictures are normally sized on my phone. The paint is Gillespie. They make accurate military paint colors from WW2 to present day. The paint color is accurate to the Vietnam war and is a really nice semi gloss green

Yesterday they were small but today I can see them fine. I guess I might need to update my phone. Anyway that color looks great! Did you fab the fender flares yourself or is that an aftermarket parts kit?

The rearview bumperettes are off of a YJ. The front bumper is origininal just with d ring mounts. The wheels are plain 16" steel rims painted body color and to top it off, 215 75 r16. Taller yet narrow tires

Having a chain welded to the driver floorboard would get annoying. But that's a interesting way of securing the jeep. I might attach a chain from the front seat adjustment bar to the steering wheel.

You wouldn't need the chain welded to the floor, but a nice loop that you could slide a chain through is not a bad idea at all.

Went out and bought a stainless steel chain, looped it around the seat bar. Seems to work quite well
