    A few years later do you still recommend? How has it held up?

    Nothing new to report. The Jeep runs solid, fires right up. I've been driving it as much as possible. I want to do something to it, but I'm not sure what?

    Do you have a center console of some sort...I am thinking of using a small ammo can or something to go in there...maybe you could work out some of the details and report back. (There is also that mojave heater in the classifieds...The second heater in mine is very nice here in the winter...especially for the wife).

    Some fun stuff:
    Bellevue winch, comms, something made for the Jeep with a lathe, trail rides!

    Teardrop or off-road trailer comes to mind.

    Mini Cooper windshield washer setup. (Sparky’s Jeep)

    Make another one of those cool, turney spot light things and then decide you don't need two and ship one to me.

    I used it the other night, I didn't "need" to, but since I had it... Why not?

    It's awesome.

    Just go over to Daryl's...I am sure he can help you find a project. I'd suggest organizing a trail run for the PNW members.

    Storage/toolboxes in the rear fenders, Fuel injection, air compressor, glove box welder, tie your roll cage to frame. Just things off my own personal list.

    Get rid of that pesky choke knob and rig up some fuel injection.

    I'd even come out for a week and help you figure it out so I can do it on mine...

    I like this one too - not sure how deep these could realistically be on mine - my 33s stuff up in there pretty tight. A lot of work for maybe not a lot of volume, but then again, every cubic foot of storage in our little jeeps is helpful.

    Great ides guys, but...

    I like the manual choke.
    I don't care to have lockers.
    I would like an old Warn winch.
    Wheel well storage... Maybe?

    I think different wheels and tires are coming soon. :sneak:
