Besides they made little tinkling noises with the washers on. Ill get installed pics if anyone wants.

Nothing in it that I'd get upset about. I don't keep my good tools in the jeep, just some old stuff that got moved out for newer stuff.

I've used mine a lot. Maybe that's just cause I have friends... Who am I kidding? I have kids so the back seat has to stay in and it is hiding my amps. Slide a padlock over the latch on the right side and you've got pretty secure storage in my opinion.

Another vote for canine usage. I do also use it on camping trips to carry people on short trips from camp, to say a store. It's not comfortable, but it saves taking 2 vehicles for a short hops.

ptoncannon started my stinger bumper! just got a 3/16inch sheet of plate steel and bent it to a 90 degree angle on the top and a 45 degree on the bottom to function with the stinger and act as a steering box guard. can't wait to keep working on it!

link to build forum:

it will be coming along, but fairly slowly.. hoping to have it done within the next couple of weeks! want to build a rear bumper with a tired carrier next

TJZ Um, ok. Just don't need mine. Been out since I've owned it.
07-17-2014 10:15 PM
srad600 No one ever sits in mine but my Boxer. He likes it in there better then out of there. Out he moves around a lot and cant get comfy. In he lays down with his head on the wheel wells and looks out.

I keep the back seat in for camping. Then you can take it out to use as a camp chair.

Was talking about this with a couple buddies.....could make a cover that rides about 1.25 inches above the speaker grill....quick attach/detach.

a buddy of mine has a Cherokee with the engine fan and dual electric fans on his radiator. And for hood vents I'd spend the extra money and do the gen right or poison spider hood vent

2nd this rack. Picked mine up off craigslist for $100 and it's awesome. The rack comes with three different posts to extend for different size spares. Will fit up to a 12.5 inch wide tire.
