Custom Molle Gear.

This isn't so much a how-to, but rather a show-off. I'd seen some of the items offered by smittybuilt with regards to Molle/PALS gear for Jeeps. I eyed them up, took some concepts and improved points I didn't like from their designs. From there I jumped on my sewing machine and came up with some items.

Hope you'll enjoy the following pictures.

First off, the seat panel:


This was fairly early in the production, since then a few things have been added such as elastic webbing for pens, light, multitool etc.

My pride and joy! My custom made overhead console. Made out of 1inch PVC for a frame, covered in heavy weight cotton. It's attached with 3 straps and 3 snap buckles. At first it sagged (as you can see in the pictures, but this has been rectified)







More pics to come!

Here are a few pictures of the current set up.

I have my screwdriver with all of the bits in the M16 ammo pouch, CDs and misc stuff in the medium GP pouch, a pouch for 2 packs of smokes, a slim pouch with a knife, a flashlight pouch and the admin organizer for receipts etc. And a toothbrush!

@ Leman, the front attaches with 1" webbing and a snap buckle.

View from the windhshield:


Between the console and the roof:


I also included a more recent picture of the seat cover.

That was just canvas I had picked up at the local fabric store. Since then I've moved onto using cordura which my fabric store also carries, however I've contemplated buying milspec stuff from either ebay or another local tactical shop. Keep in mind cordura runs approx $25/m.

Between your screen-name and the sewing skills I'm hazarding a guess that you are a Rigger / Aircrew Survival / Parajumper type.......sound 'bout right?

Nice stuff.

p.s. I ask because it looks familiar...I'm a former PR1(AW) with the U.S.N.

You're the second person on this forum to make the assumption, but you're not far off. I'm a jumper with the useful skill of sewing. I'm actually just an Infantry Officer.

Thanks for the kind words!

Very nice, looks good!

The rubicon is a 29 km. river in northern Italy. "Crossing the rubicon" is a popular idiom meaning to pass a point of no return. Originating from Ceasaer's 49 BC crossing of the river, which was considered an act of war

Question Want to do this again - for real cash?

I'm serious.

I've tried John Willis at Original SOE Gear and the folks at Tactical Tailor and either I got the Evil Clown Laugh or the Giant Invisible Cricket.

Both of those guys do **quality** MOLLE gear but they apparently aren't willing to tackle this.

If you're interested, send me a PM when you get a chance.

Molle seat covers

Recently my wife and I found this guy " current camo.com" met the owner at a show. He makes custom seat covers for 4 wheel drives made out of denier nylon with molle panels. He can match almost any interior color. We have a 2010 jeep wrangler jk. The interior is black and gray. These are not cheap made by any stretch. A pair runs 500.00. The back of the seat cover has Velcro. The molle panel attaches to the Velcro. It can be pulled off by the use of two handles at each upper corner. The panel covers the whole back of the seat. There is also a cover for the headrest with Velcro for patches along with Velcro around the edges of the seat itself to attach pouches. The seat covers fit like a glove and it comes with 5 pouches for the molle. The owner delivered before the standard 6 weeks and kept In constant contact with us for progress. The color is almost perfect. I would recommend this product.

Cool

First I've gotta say that I really like Jumper's stuff. Serious props! Obviously, his MOLLE gear is altogether a functional element.

And even when it's mostly-aesthetic, I'll admit that some of the tactical-inspired stuff for JKs is very cool. One of my first "mods" was to lash a black Cordura eyeglass case to the rollbar with an industrial-strength double-sided Velcro strap. And I went on the hunt for a bottle holster for the back seat too.

But, with the paracord this, velcro that, fastex buckles here, ballistic nylon webbing there, MagLites everywhere - even as much as I do see how the Jeep Wrangler lends itself so well to this stuff - I kinda think the MOLLE thing is starting up the ramp to jump the shark...

Zulu Nylon Gear - MOLLE Visor Panel

But as Dennis Miller used to say, I could be wrong. Anybody else think the tactical-inspired trappings are getting a bit over the top? Meanwhile, I gotta
cover my six...
