Lasted 8 yeas on my YJ and still would shine up like new. The dent came after the Durabak.

When I bought my YJ back in 2002 it had some type of Durabak or rhino liner on it. (hence the name white rhino) I hated it. But I have found it to be very durable and for a pure trail rig, it works great. Minor scratches don't show up and when I have needed to do minor touch ups, a rattle can works great because over spray never shows up.

Roll cage is welded to the frame rails as well as the rocker sliders. I'm going to add TNT stiffiners at some point.

More done.

Junk yard find, was in the back of a S-10. 5 bucks. WOOT! Cut it down to fit in the back of the cargo area.



Got the headliner all put together and back up.



Roll bar fits right up to the keyless entry thingy.



Everything covered, carpet back in, seats in.







Took the dash apart for some work....this is gonna be fun.

Are the extensions on the cage in the passenger area required due to the difference in available height between the cargo area and passenger area?? I really like how the headliner came out in final form. Looks great!!! BTM

I did it that way so it is removable if needed. It also allowed it to be able to be tacked together, then removed, install the headliner and all wiring, finish weld the cage and paint it and then put it back in. On another note it gives me a spot to mount the roll bar cup holders.:tonka:

The cage was never intended to be a roll down a mountain kind of thing. It was just some added protection to keep my family safer. I feel it will do the job just fine.

I don't have one of those key chain fobby thingies for it so I don't even know if it works. But in case it does, it would be cool to get on the ebay thingy and find a fobby thingy that would work.

Thanks guys. We're working hard on it. Even had my 6 year old son woking on it the other day. LOL

More work done. Interior all back together. Center console and dash not back together. RS9000 controller is going to mount in the center console as well as maybe the CB.
