    Flexable rubber fender flares. I know lots of people just yank their flares, you see lots of broken flares where they hit something on the trails. It would be nice to have a flare that could brush up against something without any damage.

    i think that's a good one. :cool:

    ready to go aluminum frame for drawers. I think my biggest concern with drawers is all the extra weight. If you had an aluminum frame you could buy and just put a platform on top of that would keep the weight down, then slide some rubbermaids underneath, i think that would be good.

    The only problem is the stock rack is a rust-breeding POS and it has only a 100 lb total capacity (in it's original non-rusty condition).

    all good ideas!




    i would like to see a full, molded rubber floor kit.9for U.S. spec cruisers.

    also a storage box built to install in the old spare tire location,( something to hold a 2nd battery, a compressor, maybe some tools to store out of the way.)

    a bolt in over the frame exhaust that replaces and tucks everything up that likes to hang down in the way.
