Thanks. Made from scratch with 1/4" and 1/8" plate, and cardboard templates cut from all the empty beer boxes that have sponsored this project.

I was gonna stick with blurple, then I got a new tub. It's black and it looks good so I'll keep it. Just gotta make the hood, grill, windshield frame, and doors match now.

I thought everyone was painting their jeeps maroon?

I want to change the scheme on the xj for the accessories, but I don't want it to look gawdy for a dd, so I'll probably leave it be.

Negatory. Your Jeep looks way better now than it ever did in white. I would've told you that in person at The Mounds a couple months ago, but you were too cool to acknowledge the guy on the fourwheeler

double fuku.
I didn't know that was you. I thought it was some asshat quad guy riding my ass because he thought I was in his way. If you would have given me a friendly smile I would have stopped to chat.

That probably was some asshat quad guy riding your ass, cuz I was never behind you. I was spectating in the rock course on and off for a while. You seemed busy spotting and stuff so I never interrupted to introduce myself. Later on I was in the wooded side of the course over by Curtis/TopTruk and his orange Juggy and the Scout while you guys were getting DJs RZR unstuck too.

Quoted for proof.

I thought you said you were behind me in the woods.

Lower shock mounts


Might plate the sides, not sure. I doubt I need to with the tube running through the truss like that.

Made rear frame tie-ins


I haven't seen em quite like this before, but they should do the job.
