|indirocz28||I'll have to remember this. Maybe it would keep my 8.8 from hitting my tank.|

Unfortunately I rarely document my activities, despite my best efforts to do so (ensuring camera is there, etc). I get into my grove and just go...
I read up on what others have done (e.g. cut and weld some angle across the new edge), but decided it made more sense (and less cents) to cut the amount I'm raising, and weld it back to itself (2" in my case). That and cut down the length of the straps (grinding away the galv first). I found that this was far easier than trying to make holes lineup in a piece of angle. Of course all of this assumes you have a body lift or have cut away the room for your tank
Here's a couple of pics... I suppose this meets the DIY standard.

Couple custom things I did to my '90, swapping them over to my '93, but I do have to re-make the gas can mount, it was danaged when my '90 was rear-ended and totaled...
I do like the lights, but would probably put them in my bumper...

|daddyjeep||Those lights are exactly what I have been looking for. I just ordered them, they will be here Thursday. I want to build them into my rear bumper though. Nicely done.|

After raising my fuel tank and skid, the dumb, cheap Walmart lights I was using as reverse lights had to go.* I had already broken one off clearing a creek.* And the other shattered, but was salvageable.* I wanted something tougher and looked good, so I came up with an idea, made a model, and made it happen.* Cost incurred was just under $80.
Basic cardboard model.
2" lights, courtesy of closetowholesale on eBay.
Two sheets of 1/8" steel, 3"x36" and 2"x36".* The 3" is for the face...
And the 2" was cut and clearanced for the top.
2 3/8" hole saw was used to make way for the lights and grommets.
Welded it up with some end caps.
Shot it with 3 coats of primer and 3 coats of plasti-dip.
In between coats, I wired it.
Then put it all together.

I'll look for those, I like they way it looks. Here's a link to a thread I started when I changed my dash lights. It's easy to do, and you can see your gauges better than the stock lights. You can even see them in daylight. The thread has some good tips from other forum members too, and one even posted a "how to" thread. Good luck, post pics of how it turns out!

|DylanRhodes45||The console looks great. I've been looking into doing something like that myself. I thibk if I do it I may add a spot for a speaker|

Wanted something simple to hold my coffee cups on the way to work, so I made my own console. I also made the storage shelf under the dash. Used scraps and paint in the shed and invested about $2 in the plastic cup holders.
