finally have a garage :)
 
spent last weekend getting all the wife's boxes out of the garage and started on organizing a little, and since I had a semi-functional garage, I did a few things for the JK :)

finished up the pulley rig for the hard top hoist and went topless :) rigged so it's about 40lbs of pull to manually hoist the top. easily removable and installable by myself. hangs a tad low (might have to adjust it up a bit), but I have both the lift rig holding it and an extra rope cradle just in case, making the total load rating around 500lbs.

also fabbed up a foot peg-

welded two bolts together for the frame and wrapped it in aluminum chain maille. Only got the one, but being that I have proof-of-concept done, the second will go together quickly :)


I also stuffed the sound bar full of poly-fill. can't say it really sounded any different with the top on, but with no top or doors, it's a lot clearer at lower volume IMO.

Always nice being able to actually use the garage. I think I will be getting the Harken soon. Nice Foot Pegs too!
