DO NOT buy any "new" manual tailgate system, the currently produced ones are absolute junk and will strip out ASAP. for a few bucks in wiring and relays you'll be able to put in a fool proof system.Thanks Doc! Definitely will remove the ammeter wiring...... go to a one-wire alternator....... rely on a voltmeter to monitor the charge.....
Lockers/LSDs are in the future...... may go to a 3.9X gear with 33s...... if it feels sluggish.
Rear window wiring is going to be a priority....... also thinking about going manual....... a little more foolproof.....
Thanks for commenting....... I learned a lot from your thread!
Thanks Doc! I've been reading a lot of bad stuff about the "new" manual setups.....DO NOT buy any "new" manual tailgate system, the currently produced ones are absolute junk and will strip out ASAP. for a few bucks in wiring and relays you'll be able to put in a fool proof system.
Thanks Tim....... I don't have anything to add....... just wanted to quote a "ton" of photos.......Very good. I think you've got a pretty bulletproof setup! Yep, ol Tonto is a 76.
Speaking of spare tires...

and if you made it this far... Whatever you do...
I really like that idea..... I have the spare under the platform in my Bronco..... but I've gotten to like the platform set-up less and less.I ended up ordering an interior tire carrier from a forum vendor, and it was the best $90 I have ever spent on the jeep. It fits a 33 perfect, but you cannot go any larger.
Likely won't get abused, unless you are doing so bizarre departure angle things.Dice still has the stock spare mount underneath..... could fit a 30" maybe..... but I'm afraid any tire mounted there will get abused more than if it was mounted on the Wag!
