Alright i got some more things done. Installed a Uniden 520pro CB and a a 4' Willson silverload superflex antenna on the left bed rail right behind the cab. Went and got the antenna tuned today. I mounted the CB on the cage right inbetween the seats in the middle. Ill get some pics later. Its close to my head so i can hear it really good.. Im going to get a PA speaker soon. I went out to Rubicon Express today and got 2 large flex joints for my rear shackles mounts. Im ditching the buggy leafs. I have to make the mounts for them. I got some 2x4 3/16" to make the mounts.

Today i finished welding my interior cage and painted it all. Id say i did pretty good using my arc welder on it. It seemed damn near impossible to weld a cage with it but i did ;)  I also drilled and welded new mounts for the seat belts so they are up at stock location now.They were really low and im too tall :gap: Some pics

 :bling: You can see my CB mounted on the cage. I like that spot because its close to my ear so i can hear it nice and loud. I bought a PA speaker from radioshack but i cant get it to work. Guess im just a :hammerhead: about wiring it. I tryed a few connectors and cant get it to make any noise. Guess this is a bad speaker :confused:

My center console. A Fat 50.cal ammo can. Going to bolt it down and i ordered a ammo lock that locks the lid with a pad lock and makes it very hard to break into. I dont have to worry about anything being stolen with my doors off.

Maybe i should complete the bling with some fresh rattle can on the body... :suprised:  If i do it will be the last thing i do.

Next im thinking of doing an OBA set up but not sure on what compressor to buy. I want a really fast one but i know they cost a lot of $$.

The rear needs about another 1.5" of lift or so but that will be taken care of when i make the flex joint mounts. Ill post more pics when i get there

Been a while but i got some more things done. Made new rocker guards and cut off my old ones that bent because they were weak. Made all from .188 2x3 main and .188 2x2 legs.

Fabbed mounts for Rubicon Express flex joints. Mig welded inside and out around the outside edge and smoothed out (thanks to tawneybuilt on this board for welding them) Used .188 wall 2x4, used a 2 5/8" hole saw then cut them down.

Made mounts to lift the rear about 1 1/2 inches. Looks better. Going out to Prarie City tomarrow and will get some new flex shots.
