Got a new windscreen fitted today
They cost just under $500 for a JK plus fitting.
Huzzah for insurance

Grab handles - windscreen mounted KC's, sill guards, floor mats, rear tray liner.

AND BLOODY TOW BAR

imported the MOPAR BAR from the US and a US woring loom.

Well, it took basically a full day, but I the tow bar. Pictures below. Didnt like the original numberplate lights remaining there, so got rid of them and covered the hole with some cut to size chequerplate.

As you can see, can move the numberplate to either the towbar mount, or the spare wheel mount.

Auto electricians rewired it for me.

It took a while to figure out. The steel fabricators in Rosebud on the morningon peninsula did a sterling job. A and C Steel, in the industrial estate rosebud. If anyone wants one, they now have the plans all ready to go.

I have painted it all black with a can for this weekend, but will get it powdercoated black next week.

Eventually decided inside was best for the HI Lift...

2x 2"x3/16" stainless plate with stainless 1/4"x3" (then cut shorter after tightening, will get some Push bike valve caps to fit on) counter sunk screws and Lock nuts for each bracket + 1/2"x1 1/4" high tensile bolts (same as on the Jack)...

Allows enough room for seat when its in and enough room under for my kit bag & 2 jerry cans + water.

PS: whilst at the local ARB he was looking on their parts list site for ARB and he said they now make a Rear Bar with tyre carrier and Jack mount is made for it too ...

When I pushed the idea and affirmed they were looking at a JK... the second guy said yes and about $2500 and fare bit of work to fit by the looks of it....

Did search when got home but couldn't find anything advertised ...

This sounds like he is refering to the Kaymar one that is sold by them not an arb made one.

Sweet.
I've got the Pro Comp extreme a/t's. Haven't fitted them yet though. Wanted to sort out the mechanical side of things first. Just went with 16" steel rims and
33's for now. When I bought 'em I hadn't made up my mind about gearing. Now I have....... And should have gone with 35's.
