Here's some:

Backyard Body and Paint

Electrical Mods

Stupidest Things You Have Done With/To your FSJ

or maybe some non FSJ topics that could help budding idiots..err..mechanics like myself, such as:

Finding The Right Tools for the Job (duct tape.. check, goggles.. check, kneepads.. check)

Your First Welder and How Not To Kill Yourself

101 Ways to Convince Your Girl That Spending Money on Jeep Is Better Than Food or Clothing..or Rent

humor aside, any of these sound feasible?

Question

Guys tired of seeing your rear window rack back and forth as your suspension articulates over the trail? And how about that rattling tailgate? Then there is that tear in the sheetmetal dead ctr of tailgate,flop,flop,flop.....ARRUUGHHH!
It is not a recommended fix if your rig is nicely painted.
(though,the tore sheelmetal on tail gate can be done w/out welding)
It should be done in the early stages of bodywork,and interior.knowledge welding(mig/light sheetmetal) is needed.(they do not have to look pretty,just solid, all welds are ground smooth)You can fabricate your own brackets or you can use the dimentions from the ones I've made
I'm sure someone has covered this area, sorry if I have been repeditive.
Here is one more idea. You guys up north might like this one, now snow season is comming
(it also work good for summer,even in Az.)...How to insulate your jeep.

So are we or aren't we going to pick one of these topics? Seems the readers have spoken..
