    Yes. Ill be starting one soon after I finish up these last couple 80 fronts. It should be a really nice build similar in design to my 80 rear. But with some component changes. I'm not really happy with the rotopax fuel carriers ( the water packs have been fine)or the 3 different brand pneumatic swingout assists I've tried on mine over the last 2 years. I'm real happy with my single latch setup for dual arms. Time will tell once i get into it. I'll post it once I get going on it and once the temps here get out of the negatives.....

    Rich,

    A guy named Tom Saunders should be getting a hold of you. He has a 1988 Humvee and needs quite a bit of custom work done. He's outside of Stowe, VT and just got it back from doing a 6BT twin turbo swap and full custom interior, etc.... Sounds like your cup of tea and MUCH CLOSER to you than me.

    Cheers brother!

    Ditto, Rich.

    I still prefer to build around the Nato can for fuel. I will throw in the option for Rotopax but I just supply the bolt face not the cans. All of them
    tend to weep a little. I have two water cans mounted to the cargo barrier ( apparently now being referred to as a "PSR" ).
    That being said, I mount them with the spout up or the floor gets damp.
    Back to the PSR....I guess if you strap, tape , bolt or otherwise attach something to a cargo barrier, it becomes a "PSR", ( personal storage rack ). I learned this while browsing on my PICC ( personal internet command center ) while seated in my PIP ( personal ass positioner ).
    We already have too many acronyms so if nobody minds, ...I'm going to keep calling my cargo barrier just a cargo barrier. After all, it's main purpose is to keep my dog from being buried in untethered cargo

    I literally just messaged him on IG asking when he’s making them for the 100. This is a good sign. If I were local I’d be happy to stop by but I’m in PNW. So I’ll be watching from afar.

    I'm currently in the market for one, literally in the next few weeks and he lives right down the road from me. Once I've got one nailed down I'll let him have it for a few days. I'd be wanting a rear set-up personally.

    Rich, I know you're always busy, but if you ever need/want to take measurements for a 100 just let me know, I finally got my hands on one. I'm still just right up the road from you. Hope all is well.

    Just read through this thread. Awesome work Rich, your attention to detail is amazing! Hopefully I'll be able to get some bumpers from you when the 80 is ready for them..
