I just went to dealer and asked for a 99 TJ gas bezel

it was under 20 bucks

Then i took out my door, grinded down the little round lippy thing till it was a hole(still need to fill it up with RTV) and then cut the whole middle of the TJ bezel out, and screwed it on, doneeeee

Do you have pics/plans? Did you weld it yourself? what thickness? I was thinking about grabbing a tire carrier off of a pathfinder in a junkyard and then figuring a way to mount it. I am more anxious to fab a front bumper that will mount a winch.

Let's see some pics!

That is such an awesome jeep. I am definantly going to look into you suspension design. I might give it a try. Have you noticed any problems or anything since you have had it?

Hey looks real nice.

Like I said before, I'm real interested in that front bumper. Are you going to make a spot for a winch? What are you going to mount it to? Good luck, I can't wait for the write up. I've been looking for one for some time now.

BTW Gonna do that gas bezel mod today on mine and hopfully rip out my cat and put in a straight pipe. If theres time, I'm going by a metal fab place and maybe get some 1/4 sheet metal to make a TC skid plate.

Later

Hey heres the link to the TC skidplate I made today. http://www.jeephorizons.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=10928 Also took out the CAT and did the gas bezel.



I got mine for $14.05 out the door at the dealer.
Also it doesnt fit just right at the very bottom, but you can't tell.

That looks totally sick dude.

How much did materials cost? Where did you get the D ring hardware? What is the tubing size (Both rectangular and round)? Where did you get a bender?

I really like it, and if you don't mind, I'm gonna copy your design. Cool
Looks like there's plenty of room to mount a winch plate in the future.

Again, Awsome.
