The perfect Jeep accessory for your wife!!!

Well, it's Christmas, and the Jeepwife has been fantastic all year, so I had to make her something NICE for Christmas... Remember, as kids, the days of making presents for your family? Well, my wife accuses me of regressing, soooooo....

For her birthday, I'll add a front hitch mount, so she can spot better...

Re: The perfect Jeep accessory for your wife!!!

Oddly enough ....my wife would love something like that [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] . Her biggest adjustment during all day wilderness adventures was the total lack of "facilities" .........ahh the joys of nature [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

This would suit her just fine [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

You have WAY too much time on your hands. Once again you have proven that necessity is the mother of invention.

Re: The perfect Jeep accessory for your wife!!!

We've already identified several items that must be addressed in subsequent adjustments:

1) TP holder
2) Magazine rack
3) handles for mount/dismount and tougher trails where the spotter becomes a human curb feeler...
4) structural bracing for reduced "flex"...

Hey Mel,

Just make the receiver part arc down to lower the seat. This would also make a dandy back rest.

Would also give a whole new meaning to the term "drop hitch" [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
