I started out buying a RCI fuel cell and was going to install it in the back, conp cut and strech the rear. It was a slow day at work and me and a co worker were looking at my jeep and comming up with a plan for the job. During This step I kept thinking back to a ride we did at river rock. The owner's son had a bad ass back half YJ. During that trip I kept thinking how one day I would like to do that to mine. So anyway you can quess how this is going to get out of control in a hurry. So buy the end of the day i had my jeep cut in half with no real good plan

The rest of the build cont
Motor vehicle Vehicle

Vehicle Car Machine

Vehicle Auto part Bumper Automotive exterior Car

Bent some Tubing (I used 1.75" x 120wall DOM ) and added some sheet metal
Probably some one is ready to ask why did you use the existing B Pillar tube. It was already tied to the front section of cage from a previous project and Time was not on my side I had a ride in four weeks I did not want to miss. If i had to do it again i would have remade that section not as much from a strength stand point but with all the holes for seat belt mounts is looks like a hammer.
Vehicle Gas


Installed some structure for the seats

Bumper Pipe Auto part Metal Steel


Tied into the frame

Have to cont again

my project completed
Land vehicle Vehicle Tire Car Automotive tire


The finished project

I used 2" x 14" long fox shox. The axles are still my D44 and my tires a little small at only 36" TSL. But I have plans to up size the tires and get a set of 60's.

the back was down a little in the back at the time of this picture I did not have my nitrogen fill kit in yet and I had one of the guys we met at the ride bring his. Nothing like adjusting the air shocks at the camp site the day of the ride.

yea like I said in my prior post I wish I would have replaced the B piller hoop but mainly from an astecitic stand point I think it will be fine from a structure stand point. But like any project you can probably write a book on what I should have done. and buy the way I have probably spelled a lot of things wrong but I never said I was teacher.
