This is a survey of what is the most wanted part for our FSJ's that either no one makes or there is no selection. Here are some examples.

Skidplates (transmission and or Transfercase)
Rocker guards?
Roof Racks?
Tire Carriers?
Heavy Duty Steering systems?

What is it that every body wants. Reason being is that I might be set up to start manufacturing some of these part!! So let me know!!

Fender Flares- BIG ones for 35's or so.

BTW, I do believe AGR makes a HD steering system that will fit FSJ's.

I would love to find a 3" Cowl Induction hood that would bolt onto an '87 Grand Wag.

Depending on the direction I take with the wag, Ground Effects Kits, would not be bad.

Thinking of maybe going for the FSJ-Drag Car look???

Roof racks are made for these. You just have to weld up the holes to your factory one and put on some mounts that clamp on to your drip rail. Although welding up the factory holes is kind of a pain in the a%$.

How 'bout replacement QT cones/clutches? Ditto the suggestion on body panels, and I'd like to add factory Rhino kits for under $200!

Okay guys...

Thule makes a roof rack, look on my 83 Wag's website to see it. makes a 3" fiberglass cowl hood, check out the model! She's HAWT!

What doesn't exist?

The Edelbrock "Complete Power Package" with Heads and all. That or the "Accu-drive" timing gear set.

How about 393 Stroker kits?

A bolt on Dana 60 with all shock perches and mounts for the front in the right places!
Hrm... my old sig is broken.. new to follow soon.

"AutoRustech" @ 401-944-4444 makes a frame rail repair kit to cap the section next to the gas tank where the skid plate bolts up to (and rots away). $150.00.

4-6" lift kits for the early J's an Wags with the shorter leaf springs.

The fender flares for 35's would be nice too.

ok and some sort of cup holder to mount under the dash and folds out like on some of the new cars.

OOH OOH! speaking of parts made from unobtanium, nice new J truck tailgates would be killer!!!

Good original interior trim. Also, how 'bout a new steering wheel? And paint that matches in spray cans? Rear wiper motors, them little door switches, Oh yeah, American Flags!

How about a newly designed tailgate that lets to window pop-up and fold back. Get rid of that (insert adjective here) tailgate window setup, and I'll buy it!

In a wierd sort-of way, I like not having any aftermarket crap. Just gives me more respect when I seen one done up nice, some serious work had to go into it. I could go get a CJ and all the accessories in the world in less than two days, but it warrants no "wow, that's cool."

The stuff that is made is usually high quality by FSJ owners and usually not for much profit, now that's cool.

What are you thinking of? I know how inexpensive the tube steel is. I built my race car chassis out of it. Put some heads together and there could be some affordable armor that could withstand a beating. That you could turn a really nice profit from. Without charging $400 for a bumper which in my opinion is overkill, and etc. I have been thinking that myself. Keep us posted make it I will buy it

An emissions legal, bolt-on multipoint fuel injection system, like the ones Edelbrock makes for Chevy and Ford motors. That would be nice.
