I think these Jeep lights will look awesome on here and hooking up LEDs will be as easy as pie. I added inside partitions to the box to create a couple of gear storage areas, but they also increase rigidity. They will have their own hinged lids so they will still be enclosed when the main top hatch is removed...

Once again it's time to wait for glue to dry.

Couple questions
1.What size brass square tube did you use
2.when you used coat hanger wire and had to thread the ends,what size threader from your tap and die set did you use and what are the size of the nuts on them?

Thanks
Jim

1. 1/4" brass tubing.

2. A 4-40 die with 4-40 nuts. It's the smallest die I have and it doesn't cut very deep threads in coat hanger, but it's good enough for this purpose. I used the same method for my Jeep roof rack. I also filed the inside corners of the u-bolts square to fit the square tubing snugly.

new hitch design

I came up with a new hitch design because the existing one binds in certain rare circumstances...
