    Anyone thought about welding some loops onto the roll bars to fasten the webbing to?

    had some bits of strap leftover and was sick of the super stretchy factory grab handles, so i made a set of 4 of these ...



    if anyone is planning on trying this and wants dimensions on the netting or anything let me know. I found that was the most time consuming part the first go 'round.

    Also, if anyone is interested in a set of netting or these grab handles shoot me a pm and we can talk

    has anyone made/ or found somthing like this for a XJ behind the back seat (per barrier)
    I'm stumped on the anchor points. XJ's never came with a jungle gym.

    Yes Raingler does make one but I can't figure out the mounting still.

    BLSXJ I plan on doing some in the next few weeks, but if I need some mounting mounts I just weld them to the floor and due to the lack of headlinner I'm just gonna weld some up there too.

    Question is - what did you use to make the cut to prevent the webbing from fraying?

    Material has arrived for my DIY nets...thanks again

    Those look good, what are you asking for price wise? I will probably make my own, but I have to find the webbing first, nobody in town has any right now.

    JaikYJ .. I haven't decided yet on a price for these, I've got a couple of set's on the go right now, once they are finished I'll figure it out and out 'em up for sale. Check eBay for materials, you'll find everything there.

    I (my wife) have just completed the side nets...awesome. I used a butane torch, a couple sweeps across the webbing with the tip of the flame, finished. great project...next will be the rear 2" netting.
