I've started down the path of adding a 3-point harness to the rear of the LJ.  I've started some rambling on the subect in another blog post.  My intention is to install the harness so that my 6 year old daughter can us it.  I don't do any crazy wheeling with her in the Jeep, but I still want her safe, and I figure this should do the trick. 

I made this video once things were completed, Watching this, and reading this article, should give you a pretty good idea of how to get this all done. Enjoy!

Just a quick one today.  I recently started looking into a rear harness solution.  Something I can use with the kids, and then adjust as they get taller.  There doesn't seem to be a ton of information on the 'net about this.  I can't tell if this is because no one wheels with their kids, or because no one though that a harness in the back would be a good/safe idea?

Where once there was DIYJ, there is now a void.

Well, after much internal debate, I decided to part off and sell DIYJ.  It had sat for so long and I was making little to no proress on it.  The expense of doing what I really wanted to do with it was daunting to say the least.  Building a YJ when I have two kids that I want to take out on the trail with me also seemed a little foolish as well, when I had the LJ which was much better suited for a family.  So I listed a part-out ad on CraigsList, and started selling off parts.  The body, axles, and some other components are all gone.  The frame remains, but I have a buyer lined up for that. 

Sold the JK.

It's been a little while since I've posted, and something grave has happened.  I've sold my 2013 JK.  It's ok though, it's made way for a new project.  My new DD and weekend wheeler is a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited, or LJ as theyre known in the community.  There's a long story here, but I'll just say that the 2013 was a very nice vehicle, and I'm sad to see it go, but the burden of the LJ is much lighter, and with some recent family changes, it just makes more sense.  On the bright side, it should make for a more interesting project, as I may actually have some money to spend on upgrades!
