    Last and probably least for the weekend, I finally wired up my led reverse lights after having them in the bumper for 4 months. Not overpoweringly bright but will help with my 5% tint.

    Did this to my battery today. Replaced this POS terminal with the new one from Scosche. Still kind of a mess in there but better than it was before!

    You need some bracing on that t-case skid. Gonna bend like a pop can if you run it the way it is.

    Thanks. Wasn't sure how I was going to do that part. But this morning lying in bed it came to me. Deck hatches for boats. Not happy with white but can always change the color with some paint or bed liner spray.

    Spent a few days this past week working on my annual refinish of my bumpers and sliders. That meant pulling the bumpers and swingouts and sanding them down then respraying with Rustoleum.

    not a great photo but I repainted the ammo box I carry on my second swingout. Painted it with 3 coats of Graphite and 5 coats of clearcoat.

    Rear bumper was off and drying for a day. You can see in this photo that I repainted my CO2 tank as well. Graphite and Red with 5 coats of clear.

    Sliders and front bumper all done.

    Then I followed it up on Friday night with some camping with my son and then a little wheeling yesterday. Met with a couple guys from our Cruiser club (one FJ40 and one FJCruiser) and my neighbor in his JK Rubicon

    Rubicon got high centered
    [​IMG]

    Which meant I could strap him. :)

    They could if they were short and didn't mind not having a seatbelt. I took the rear ones out.

    Anyone I put in the bak doesn't wear the belt anyways. They always put there back to the side window, more leg room that way. But I like your design a lot. I might have to do that but with aluminum :)

    Thanks. I was thinking sheet metal or aluminum. But wood is easy to work with and will not conduct noise as much..
