Super stoked you posted these! After more than 30,000 miles and 43 states with our '72 CJ, she's long overdue for some rehab. We took off the boot to replace it (the original had been replaced with cheap canvas which rotted and finally tore in last week's winds at Anza Borego State Park, California) last night, the cabinets have shaken toward the center after the screws that secured them sheared off (apparently not for the first time - they were these three screws shown in your photo: https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/sh...RtWaQ95U5-VsuA
). Gosh, yep, your detailed photos are great. This one (https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/sh...RtWaQ95U5-VsuA
) shows right where my cabinets are falling apart.
What is this for? Mine doesn't have anything like it. https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/sh...RtWaQ95U5-VsuA
Our upgrades are also going to include new curtain rods. Oh, and we had to weld the frame to get home after it broke somewhere along the road. Yep...broke! Right behind the crossmember you show here https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/sh...RtWaQ95U5-VsuA
It looks like there's been at least one mod, and it's the first I want to make: hinges on the chair cabinets! Mine has the original wood which just set on there. I'd rather it hinged in place. Those photos will help me figure out my options. Looks like someone added an awning
, too, and mine never had an external electrical
outlet. That's interesting.
Those little pins that hold your door window open are easily replaced. I did it with hand tools in my garage with limited skills (never got to take shop, but I can wing it pretty well). Same with the screens: SUPER easy. I did the first one, then my six year old and eight year old did the side window screen installations. Seriously.

You're going to have SO MUCH FUN WITH THIS! (But first, you're gonna need to downgrade your tow vehicle!)
Thanks for the pix.
