The sliders are out of 3/16 steel and can take a lot of abuse, and the step stows flush to the bottom when you close the door. You can get them with LED lights so you have good vision of where you're stepping at night....drop-off?? I've pinned them against rocks to get thru tight turns and had no problems I.e. John Bull. First mod and best mod......love shoulder time with my wife!
Sounds like one I'll have to get. What's a couple grand to keep the little woman happy.

Not sure if this is a "Best mod ever" material but it has worked out great for me with no regrets on having it. Keeps everything out of sight and secure.

Had it made locally.

That looks good and is a great mod. It keeps the trail bags secure in a soft top since they cant be accessed without the tailgate open. I plan on doing that as well but a bit bigger since I don't run a back seat. Maybe use aluminum and put a carrier rack on top of it to carry additional supplies on longer trips. Good pics!

I'd say the mod that changed my Jeeping world would have to be the upgrade from stock tires to 35's (and the lift needed to fit them). The extra clearance and traction changes everything.

For non-Rubicon Jeep owners, I would think lockers would be up there too, among mods that change everything.

I'd say one of my favorites is my suckdown winch. Makes big climbs a lot less sketchy in my short little TJ. Helps with traction too to transfer some of the weight.

Is that a bumper/carrier combo Yomondo? You're not running the stock hinge and carrier, right? I have the TF hinge but the stock carrier. Adrian bought a Yakima bike rack but afraid to run it because of all the weight......

That's the Shrockworks bumper/tire carrier.

Agree with this. When I went from 33" BFG AT to 35" GY MTR, I couldn't believe the difference. Night and day between getting stuck and making it over something.

That's to help stop you from rolling? Never seen that before, but have heard it mentioned.

Sorta. It just prevents the front from unloading.

I had to look it up too. Is there any benefit to using this type of setup then just running some limiting straps?

Limitng straps are really just for limiting downtravel on the corners. I know some guys run a center limiter with coilovers but I don't like that setup compared to a winch setup.

The benefit with my setup is my suspension is completely free until I want to suck it down. I can suck my rig down to the bumpstops and it will hold it there. Doing this I can really put some weight on the front if I want to.

Comes in handy on 7' tall waterfalls in a 93" wheelbase TJ I didn't make it though, looking back I definitely would have made it if I bumped it harder. But hitting this waterfall the front didn't feel like it wanted to lift up on me at all.

The CJ behind you, recent flop or just old trail character?
