Looks like half of a Lange Rack.

That's exactly it, although at a glance mine appears to be one piece. Not sure if I really need it as a light bar, probably will get rid of it.

Many thanks for helping me finally figure out what that was.

I may be interested in it if you do decide to get rid of it.

My Smittybilt XRC8 was having controller issues, so I took it apart and hard-wired it into my cab last night. I wanted to keep it simple, so I mounted it up by driver's left knee, with an interrupter switch under the hood to keep people from dicking with it while the doors are off. I haven't been under the heep in a while, felt good. I need to clean up the mount a little bit, but I'll take some pictures once it's all back together.

Low-End Rating:5 High-End Rating:7 Rating of 7: driver experience might make a big difference. Drivers new to wheeling a modified vehicle may want to learn on easier trails before moving up to ones with this rating. The obstacles may not be tougher if the right line is found, but a wrong line could be extremely difficult or dangerous. The possibility of rollovers and body damage is present, though almost all experienced drivers with modified vehicles should get through these trails without any issues.
Today was definitely a great day to take the Jeep the out. The back roads all over the front range were clogged up with tourists, RVs and choppers riding 10mph under the limit, so we grabbed the map and looked for an open nearby FS road that we haven't hit up yet. Had the trail damage website not been down this A.M. I probably wouldn't have attempted the trail but luckily we ran into these guys from Hooligan Offroad out there and they showed us around. I was the only rig out there on 31s, but with some good spotting I made it through all the obstacles.

I made this hitch rack for my XJ. Tried it out on the JKU yesterday for the first time. Works like a charm. It might be tight when I put a larger spare tire on the back, but I think it'll still work.

And yes, I'm getting amped up for this year's Rubicon run.

Saw this a few weeks ago and it's got me thinking. There are some places on my bucket list that I want to explore where a Jeep would make more sense but I don't want to leave a bike behind either. And you can't get permits for more than one motor vehicle imported into Mexico at a time.

Answer: license a Jeep as an RV. Florida would do that with some simple modifications. Mexico will allow an RV to tow a trailer with a motorcycle on it.

Hmmmmm ...

I love that concept and think they are uber cool. However, I think they are $7-10k! I'll get a more versatile roof rack for $1500 and a nice roof top tent for $1k and still be able to use the soft top.

About $6K although they make a larger one for about $10K as I recall.

I like this because that entire rear section can be removed. One day you are an RV, the next day you have a Jeep by removing the rear section and replacing with another rear section. Or canvas.

Spending some time in the Yucatan and Belize are on my bucket list. Mexico will give a person a 10 year permit for an RV and allow you to bring in a second vehicle if it's with the RV and I'll bet that I could finesse that if I can get a Wrangler licensed in Florida as a camper.

Anyway, it's a thought. Giving me some serious thoughts about investing in a Jeep as part of a "system" of vehicles, that's for sure.

Yeah, but your orange thing has those bitchin' Rubicon stickers on the hood that mine seems to be missing
