    In anticipation of the August Colorado trip I have been wanting a way to carry a Jerry can similar to the way I used to. I came up with a way add a bolt on bracket to my homemade tire carrier. I want be able to remove it when not needed, so it is all bolt-on. The new can came from Harbor Freight, the basket from Amazon. Such is modern life.

    Here it is just clamped together to check fit

    Here it is just about done.

    Here it is complete. It is primarily made of 1.5" x1/4" mild steel bar.

    Here is the mount I had in the old days.

    Ordered some heim joints for my clutch linkage. Jeep has been sitting since last year when I snapped the clutch control rod.

    I also looked at it. The seats I have don't fit my frames. I will have to adapt them.

    I finally broke down and mounted up my brand new "old school" Bf Goodrich 33's. They weren't getting any newer sitting on the shop floor.

    I threw my flares back on. Is there any better product out there than armor all? 4 coats of it brought out decent color but I feel like it could be better

    I figured to stay away from that because I heard that it’ll make the flares all weird

    I put the summer meats back on. I’ve got to put it to work dragging dead trees around.

    I thought we'd see more post's here, of all the thing's you guy's have done to your Jeep's since having been told to work from home ?

    Here's what I finally got installed today. Had Brackets & chains from Walck's sitting; on my bench for about a year !
    Next , I'm installing some Teak on the inside of the Tailgate.

    I feel your pain. Waiting for my engine pieces to get back from the machine shop. Every week I hear "probably the end of the week ".
