    Yakima \"Load Warrior\" installed

    I modified the rack that I got from Can-back, I took 2" out of the brackets so it would not sit up so high and then I cut the extra length off of the pipes so they would not stick out so far and filled the end of the pipe with a cork and painted then installed a Yakama "Load Warrior" roff rack.

    Looks awesome, Steve. Ditto the comment about this continual improvement thing going on..........

    You give up fitting in the garage yet?

    Thank's guys, it still fits in the garage baby!!! I have an 8 foot high door and I still have 2-1/2+ inches of room to grow, so with 38's I should still have an 1-1/2" or so left. [​IMG]
    I will be putting in a Dana 60 next month, I wonder if I can break it at the Easter Jeep safari?

    8' garage...........man, you have everything! haha

    No way you can break that D60. You might find a weak link elsewhere, but don't think it will be your BRAND STINKIN' NEW D60 WITH 4.88'S AND ARB!!!!!!! [​IMG] You truly are "building the perfect beast". Actually, I think you will show up a lot of Heaps there.........make sure you take a video camera and sell us some tapes..........

    It's getting there, and to think I've only been working on it for seven years now. The tall garage is nice but what sucks is that it is not very deep.

    Re: Yakama \"Load Warrior\" installed

    I just finished a job yesterday on a guys garage. I installed 2 8'x8' doors and a 12'x12' door. This GARAGE is about 1600-2000 sq. ft. and has a full bath with a loft above the two 8' doors. I now have a new dream!!!!

    Looks great Steve. I've been thinking about adding a rack to my plain-jane top.

    It was pretty easy to install, when I do the review I will find out all the part numbers to install to hard top.
