The Jeep also had oil, temp, volts, and fuel gauges they wont fit in the Patrol dash panel. I didnt want to put them in the dash area where the ash tray and map light are located, so i built a small box that will mount right above the transmission cover. This allows me to have room for an AC unit to mount between the gauge box and the dash. I angled the box so it will tilt up and towards the driver. I will post some more pics when i install it. I still need to clean up the holes with a dremel.

I was going to cut an inspection cove in the bed floor for the fuel sender access. Then i decided not to because i was sooooo burned out at the time from cutting and welding so much. My best friend Bo told me i needed to build this fuel pump access so i reluctantly did. Thank god i did, because i have already used it twice! :)

I bought some 4x4 traction mats (X bulls). I didnt want them to get stolen, so i cut and welded some locking hitch pins to some angle iron and then bolted it to my tool box. The locking pin fits perfectly through the holes in the mats. I also mounted my high lift jack. I was going to put it on the hood, but decided i want to leave the hood clutter free. The high lift jack was secured with a pad lock, but i also decided to cut and weld a hitch pin lock for it as well. You can see in the pics that the high lift jack foot plate is also mounted to the tool box with a bolt and wingnut, it cant be stolen unless the jack it out of the way. :D

Always great to see updates from the master fabricator!

Everything looks tops, Ron, and if as the location of each part was dedicated to them.

Ive taken it out Coyote hunting a few times! Im happy with the choice of putting this on a Jeep chassis. It rides good and 4x4 great! That Jeep 4.0L is running very good! This truck is a pleasure to drive!

I thought i posted these pics already, but i guess i didnt. These are from October right after i got it together. These are shots i took at work. The other day the Division Trainmaster told me he doesnt want me driving my Patrol Pickup to work anymore (Of course he was just kidding)! He said he cant get the train crews on the trains because they are all out here looking at my truck!! :lol:
