    Theyre are a bunch of companies already making the grab handles. Although most of them are three separate pieces and the shackle holds it together. I made the center core one piece on mine so that the shackle would be up top.

    I have sold 4 sets already to some locals. The ammo cans were my way of gaining some storage room.

    Thanks Terry it's getting there. I finally got around to welding the bolts on the tire swing to hold the High Lift offroad base plate.[​IMG]

    Almost done with the tie rod and draglink I built using 1 ton gm tie rod ends and 1 1/4" seamless pipe. They shorted me two jam nuts so had to wait on them to come in.

    How do like the Cooper tires, do they have the typical road noise? I almost got them for my Jeep but opted for General Grabbers.

    So far I like them they ride much smoother than any mud terrain I've ever tried road noise is typical for a 33" not to bad.

    How many miles on your Jeep. Mines an 05 with little over 84000. I went automatic this time so the wife could drive it. Still catch myself looking for the clutch every once in awhile. :PDT_Armataz_01_37:

    My Bro just showed up yesterday in a 2014 4 door Rubicon X Red on Black, Its sweet has factory 411 gears, Front and rear Diff lock, Dana 40's , Automatic torsion link disconnect, Hard top and removable Half top..He's not use to it yet, but he Got it stuck in a creek and had to get a Yukon to pull him 3" due to high centered, He's going to put lift and 35" ers on it soon. I told him its nice just the way it is, I'm trying to get him into Atving. Just got back in the states from japan, Stationed in VA . If I was single with no Bills, I would have the New Rubicon or a jeep like your building up..I have always loved the Jeeps.
