So its been raining all day and its a saturday, plus I just got my lifts in the mail...so what better way to spend a gloomy saturday afternoon???
I pulled the jeep into the carport and put my body lift (RC 1.25") on and then made my back seat grab handles (same way I did the front) so more or less, been a GREAT rainy Saturday afternoon! Will get some pics up when the weather clears up some. :bounce:

Yea I just gotta see if I can find a write up or if anyone knows what I can do about the tailgate...without have to buy/weld new metals. Just wanna clean it up some since I cant carry a 37 on there (which is what Im puttin on next weekend if the lift gets finished)

You might put some thread locker on the bolts that hold up the grab handles, mine rattled loose, fortunately I caught it before they fell out. Both sides were loose.

Dont have conventional grab handles, good info though. I made my grab handles. I just used some rope and tied it then melted/singed it together. Ill get some pics up tomorrow show ya what i mean
