    Diff Breather Mod:

    I relocated the breather to top right corner of fuel fill box so I would decrease chance of hitting it with gas fill nozzle. Fits perfect!!!

    Bed Rack salvaged via CL from a XJ. It holds the MFC's (OD) and Water Cans (Tan) nicely. Will actually hold 15 cans all together if I actually wanted to carry that much. Gives me the ability with the bed cross bars matching the top of bed to place containers/cargo totes up to top of bed.
