I like to wheel with out doors anyway, so it's not a big deal and I'll be more protected. I'm just wondering how I'm gonna keep it all dry when I sits outside. Maybe I can find a cover for it that is waterproof and not just a blue tarp.

Get the waterproof covers from corbeau ( or similar that fits)
Love mine and they keep the seats perfectly dry.

I bought corbeau covers....haven't used them yet .

When not in tow and not being driven, the pop up canopy works very well.

Haha

If I wanted a jeep..... Oh Nevermind


Fixed my front axle where the welds broke, use a stick welder and some nickle rod, looks like it should hold. If not, I'm either gonna add more support, find a new axle, or build a custom axle. Time will tell.

Still Debating on the caged doors....Not feeling like working on it haha, might just paint my spare doors to match for now.

Why not do something like this for the doors? It may take more tube, but may look better IMO.

(Sorry for the not straight lines I did it on my iPad, lol)
