Tube fenders, rear corners, custom Aluminum console.

Some more mods to the Hemi YJ.




A little trimming.


These look familiar.


Testing the fit.




Cool!

I know NHRA, NASCAR, etc.. have guidelines (rules) for restraint harness mounting points. For practicality reasons it was done the way you see it here. (easier access to the rear seat, no tubes for the kids to bag there heads on , etc..)

if they aren't going to use them correctly then they shouldn't use them. if they had them on and got in a accident at highway speeds im sure it would hurt.

O.K.
Maybe we should also install safer doors, smaller tires, get rid of the lift. Oh, and the Hemi - we need to get rid of that - Way too much power for a Wrangler.

Anything else???

Come on guys, lets be real here.

For one, they go through slots in the seats. The seat would also have to crush down to do any "spine compressing". Two, it is not going to be driven on the highway.

Anything else??? Well, as a business owner I would think you would do things the right way or not at all...but thats just me. Perfect example a FRIEND of mine helped me bend my cage, he refused to let me leave the garage with out certain triangulation, gussets etc. Why? Because he wanted it done right and safe.....

Come on guys, lets be real here.Yes, lets be real here, do it right or don't do it, or half ass it?

For one, they go through slots in the seats. The seat would also have to crush down to do any "spine compressing". Two, it is not going to be driven on the highway.
That may work, but I'm not convinced. I think I would find a way to install the seatbelts properly and explain to the customer that if he rolls, gets in an accident, etc that he would be much safer doing it the right way....

All safety concerns were talked over with the owner and the decision was made for the reasons stated above.


BTW, I'm not quite convinced that it is the wrong way. Most companies that manufacture harness systems sell both versions -roll bar mount and floor mount. It CAN be done either way. I could see a problem if the shoulder straps went over the seats as opposed to through them, but they don't.
