Had a lot of vibration on the 50” light bar - not fancy but a black Kong chew ball was a tight fit - added a little black tape to make it as tight as possible and used plastic ties to ensure they don’t come out. Did the trick

Thanks! Do you think you'd still be able to get the limiting straps on the hooks if it was on the wall or would it need to be spaced off?
Without some spacing, the limiting strap hooks on the Topsy bracket will be tight to the wall. The 3/4” thick lumber strapping I used to space my wall-mounted bracket gave plenty of room to hook the limiting straps.

The Topsy bracket is pricier than other door hanging options, but it only needs 42-48” of wall space to hang 4 doors - a great solution for smallish garages like mine.

Unfortunately this stay at home thing is becoming expensive. Too much time to find shiny things to buy for my JLUR. Ordered Borla touring climber exhaust and KC pro6 light bar. Hope this ends soon or I am going to start a go fund me page for my ever demanding Jeep>
Do what I did. Break your hand wrenching and you won't be able to do any more wrenching for 6 to 8 weeks. That way you won't buy stuff 'cause it won't fit in the garage :(

Started installing the poison spyder crawler rear bumper and tire carrier. That thing is HEAVY! Only dropped it once lol. I have to pull it back off and open up the holes on tire carrier bracket in the bumper. They’re just slightly off and won’t allow the mounting bolts to line up.

Added Dynatrac 2" lift to my overland build today, there is about half inch to spare from my 7-ft garage door opening to the top of my Jeep. I don't want to park outside, guess no more lift and 37 for me!

OMG! Tell me about it! It’s driving me crazy. I broke my leg jumping out of my boat but it’s made a huge impact on my wrenching ability

OUCH! I guess even including medical costs, it still might be cheaper than more Jeep mods!

Finally got my new 295/70r17 Patagonia M/Ts mounted! Last week was 2.5" Rough Country spacer lift and 1.5" wheel spacers.

And FYI - 5 295/70r17 tires will JUST fit in the back of a 2-door with the rear seat removed.
