Nice. I wanted a more trail friendly cb vs my full sized and my antenna was old and beat up so a new one was in order. Hopefully I can get better highway ranges out of it.

x2 I have a 520 as well. If your concerned with more range take it to the CB shop, they can boost it up a bit. I believe CB's stock have 4 watts, they got mine to push 28 watts. I went to Xtream-cb on the west side.

Looks good ^^^^^

My carpet got soaked a few times this week so I just finished pulling it out and hosing it and the jeep down. Man I love the fact that its so easy to do. It has really made me want to bed line the tub.

Does anyone know if there's a bed linner company that will match the paint to possibly commando green? I love seeing the cg on the floor. I'll post some pics tomorrow.
Hopefully the carpet will dry by Sunday.

Jeep should just break down and introduce the first factory linned interior for a vehicle. It would even be awesome in a work truck like the Ram.

Al's Liner is a DYI and I'm pretty sure you can tint it to whatever you want.

I have a set of Al's liner without tint. It is black. I didn't use it. I would be willing to sell.

I'm really loving the trektop nx I put on a couple weeks ago. It is so easy/quick to take the sides and back off. I also like being able to flip the front portion back to expose the front seats.

Got the carpet back in. Being able to pull it out and put it back in so easy has made me love my Jeep even more. (I giggled on that one)

I threw in a link to another thread where I was trying to get some help on this thing. I wrote up what the fix was as well to help out any future rockhard installs.

Fabbed up a new winch guard and light mount today. Started with a 40" piece of 1.75" DOM, told the cad program on Daniel at SLO laptop the design I wanted, bent the DOM, welded it on, tapped the mounts in and came up with this design, much like my TJ design. Simple, functional winch/front impact protection and blinged it out with the light. Just need to clean it up and spray it all black texture. If anyone is looking for fab work let me know. Build it the way you want it, look different, or like to have a one off.
