    that is very nice, did it all yourself too. :)

    i like the rack in the rear, way to make use of some otherwise wasted space. im jealous, i would do the dash over like yours to open up the cab area.

    Looks slick Bryan! Nice job on the cage too.[​IMG]

    Steve, those lights are commonly used on trailers and stuff. Grote makes em I think. The ones we most commonly used were the oval, 4" round and 2 1/2" round. Each size and shape comes in amber and red and you can also get clear back-up lights in the 4" round size. All of them push into a rubber grommet mount and have some real good weather tight connectors on the backside. The good part is that they'll take a good impact without breaking because they're mounted in the rubber part so they move a bit.

    Thanks for the great compliments guys. It's been slow going, but she's coming along ok. Steve, these guys are right, I went for those lights since they're about $3 each and you can pick them up anywhere if you break one on the trail.

    Hours into it? Dunno, it's been torn down 2 years. A whole lot, but I'm still under $3K total!!! [​IMG]

    The back seat still fits, had to remove the arm rests, but who really cares for those anyway? That was one of my priorities, cause I love having a 5 seater. The tubes on the floor were merely positioned as low as possible, and I'll make up for the height/angle difference with the seat brackets. Got a 60/40 bench on the way over thanksgiving. Top's still on it, and I'm keeping it for now. Can't afford a soft top, and modifying the hard top to fit what I currently have is just a bit of work sectioning and refiberglassing. Currently, no top, but I'm going to cut a section out of the factory hard top.

    18 replies in 2 hours, wow. Thanks for the kudos. Maybe I'll have it on the trail wheeling with yall soon!
