    Default Xj/grand folks... cool idea!

    I just stumbled across this on the portal. Guy came up with a brilliant idea (imho) which may borrow for my jeep.
    If you've wheeled you uni body hard you may have experienced the fairly common "rear window pop".
    Maybe you like messing with factory designs or have a general dislike for glass? Need more tool storage??
    Check out what this dude made!

    That's slick!

    One of the guys in my club, moved his gas tank up, mostly inside the rear of his XJ.

    Since he had 'popped' that window out, he made a skin to cover it, and installed the filler neck in it.

    Have to show him this, he has room to make a small storage spot in his, the filler opening is in the bottom corner, right above the factory spot.


    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.

    I'm really thinking of doing this to mine, maybe on both side even. Great place to store need-to-access stuff like recovery straps, jumper cables, etc. Stuff you need to get to but opening the hatch may not be possible. What with my xj being more expedition oriented anyway... I could build a pretty big box on each window.
