Looks good. XJs are about the best bang for the buck going. Shouldn't need to worry about brakes. Get the vibes outta the back?

Ron just remember, the heavier the rack the less weight you'll be able to carry in it safely. Plus, if you lift your Jeep and put the larger tires on it, you don't want it to be top heavy while offroading. Oh yeah, here's a photo of mine blending into the local surroundings...Ha, ha.... The coyotes don't even notice my Jeep or me on top of that platform.

You can hunt there? Sorry for the hijack.

Jawbreaker, did you make the bumber? It looks sweet. If you did, can you tell me the materials you used?

I didn't make it, I was going to but found this one for 300 bucks shipped and the materials for the one I was going to make would have been about $180 plus all of my time. If you want to make one all you need is 3/16" flat stock and some 1/4" and a lot of cutting and welding, I'll find some pictures of the last bumper I built when I find them. Mark, Let's go. I'm always up for some fun in the dirt.

Hey Ron, you ever been up to Corral Canyon Offroad park? That's where I took the wife and some of the other guys and their wives on Mothers Day! We had a barbeque and all then most of them lost it on the trail back to the parking area!

Why does the taco bumper have a dip in the middle but not deep enough for the Lplate? Where's they put it? Just curious.

Yoteblaster, Tha is about all I did with the drawer besides a piece of carpet around the top and sides, I was going to clean it up a little bit but it works good like it is and I'm not wooried about how it looks. It carrys all my gear perfectly and keeps the back a little less cluttered.single six,I don't remember why my brother wanted it built like that. Because we made it a swinng away tire bumper the plate went on a bracket that utilized the studs for the spare tire.

Well if I'd been paying attention and noticed the swingout I'd have figured it out. We built a similar one for JK not long ago.

Hey Ron. I just ordered 4 quarts of flat Desert Tan camo, mineral spirits based enamel from out of state. I am going to sand the old girl down again and shoot it with my HVLP setup to get a bunch of paint on the steel. I'll let the desert tan paint cure for a month or two and then I'll shoot the camo accents (brown, green, black, etc.) with Krylon rattle cans and palm masks. I am actually amazed at how well the last paint job held up using 25 cans of Krylon. I painted it about 10-years ago and it still looks pretty good. Of course none of this can take place until I finish redoing both bathrooms at the house or my a$$ would be grass.To keep my rig cool, a couple of years ago I bought about 5 cans of that expanding spray foam at Home Depot. I drilled small holes in my cardboard headliner and shot the foam between the roof of my rig and the headliner. I capped the holes with plastic caps. That keeps the rig way cooler in the desert and eliminates condensation problems during the winter months.
