Cool stuff. It never ceases to amaze me, how many folks think that a Jeep needs to be highly modified to go have fun, and be able to negotiate moderately difficult (or more) trails. Seat time is THE best upgrade you will ever make to it. ;)

 

And Kris is correct. The organization of the tool box puts most of us to shame… :eek::D

 

PS: the diff guard looks like a very good upgrade for the aluminum diff housing, and is a nicely done unit. :)

Thanks everyone.

Im an aircraft maintainer and all of our toolboxes are shawdowed and labeled, now i had no need to label everything but the shadowing will help me immensly not having to rifle through ammo cans trying to find the right socket or wrench.

 

And george panamint valley is littered with random trails ranging from mild to wild. And im hoping one year to make the yearly PVD (panaminy valley days)
