Grille Guards styled after the 70's D-bars. Those looks great and work well for a stock bumper setup.

Some kind of kit that makes it easy to swap in lights where the rhino plates go. Doesn't need to be the entire swap, just something the part that allows the mounting itself.

Or fiberglass/carbon fiber

Screw that! Good old fashioned steel! I'd LOVE to find an old NOS Cherokee body tub. I've seen two in my time involved with FSJs and really wish I had jumped on them... :(

I'm not a fan of composite bodies but thick aluminum would be real nice.
Now this ol' Jeep needs a coat a' paint

Hello Marshall, I believe you bought a super clean '83 from me in OK a few years ago. I think you said it had wound up in Florida? I've always been curious what happened to it...

I like the cage idea, I'll put in my bid for FSJ bumpers (seems like BJs has the corner on those) for a possible cheaper price/DIY weld up kit like for other model jeeps. BJs are supposed to be good quality (two sides to every story) but I would like a possible option that doesn't start out at 500 and go up to t 800 or so.

Shackle savers for us wheelers would be awesome also. Nothing like rocks rubbing on your shackle/shackle mounts to make you worry.

Interior metal pieces... such as thin gauge door panels, side interior panels (thin gauge panel if you have CNC access I think they would sell well... )

WT replacement flares made from pre bent tubes DIY or pre welded... maybe some 1-2" bent tubing to make a sturdy flat fender replacement for these models, also maybe a way to graft them to a NT body to open up the fender wells on those (would help open up the market on those, I believe no one else has done this or is currently doing this.)

Rock sliders are being produced I believe, maybe a sturdier rocker panel replacement other than the one BJs offers (stock) , possibly beefier, but not quite a slider that ties into the frame...

Just some late night ides... maybe they make sense

I'm not sure what happened to the 83. The gentleman that bought it from me seemed to have some really cool cars in his collection so I'm sure it is doing well. I wish I would have kept it at this point but it would have been just another thing to drag back to az. Lol. I. Really glad to be back and I'm dying to build another crawler. Small hiccup no is I've got a decent size family now compared to last time I turned a golden eagle into a 2 seat buggyish thing. My wife and kids are into wheeling so I have to have something that will fit everyone.

How about a full length floor console that runs from just under the A/C to the back of the front seats. This console would replace the arm rest between the seats. The console could house a floor shifter, transfer case shift lever, CB radio, gauges, lockable storage compartment, cup holder, you name it.

I've seen lots of short consoles, but nothing full length. I've been looking for one to adapt to my '83 Cherokee and may build one.

Mounting for axe/shovel on the factory roof rack. The "Universal" one is too wide and the rest that I've seen are for specific brands of rack.

I would love a prebent (I weld) DOM cage for a J-Truck. 1.75x.120 tubing or so. As long as it was well designed, that is.

Muscle Grill Please!

The others are available, but its pretty obvious from the "want ads" on all of the FS sites for people looking for them.

Yup, I would gladly pay for a good cage base to build from.
