    Made some redneck netting to keep a border collie that's getting a little too brave in the jeep. Of late, he's really wanting to lean out into the wind. A good bump in a corner and he'd be out. Never had this problem with the previous dog.

    This looks hokey, but worked great on our drive today.

    For a more permanent solution, I've ordered these JKU nets I think I can make work: https://www.amazon.com/RT-TCZ-Restraint-Protective-Wrangler-2007-2018/dp/B07XXWBTLF

    I just made a short lead that attaches to our mutts harness and loops over the rollbar in the center. She can move side to side but can't jump or fall out.

    I'm doing exactly that for the other jeep. it's just going to have a bikini top on it for the Colorado trip. I've got a harness for the dog and have a roll bar clamp on the way.

    Thanks guys. List is really small. A fussy drippy rear brake line, little bodywork and paint on hood, windshield, grille. Put the PTO on and sort out the shaft to the winch. Tweak the skid plate. Close!
    Oh and 33x10.5-15's on my 7.5" Western turbines. You didn't really think I'd run black wheels?

    Nice jeep, I like jeeps so much that I like seeing any pictures no matter what they are doing.
    BTW. I like your front seats, are they the original factory seats that have been recovered? Or are they factory seats from another vehicle? I will be needing new seats for my 74 when I start my rebuild. Thanks Jim

    Got around to the reconfiguration of my fixed in place rear seat. Now I've got a pickup or a 3 seater .:)

    Now for the 'I feel like an Idiot part ' :
    I adjusted the right front wheel bearing , after I initially didn't get it right when new a short time ago. it went well until the Selectro HD reinstall.
    I cannot, for the life of me, get the shift knob cap back onto the base ? It goes on as far as just barely covering the O ring, but then the retaining screws will not seat into the base ring ? I 've tried every which way, for an hour, but I finally had to walk away. :mad:
    Can any one advise an Idiot of what he's doing Wrong ?
    Thanks in advance.
