    Here is my attempt. I used some 5/8" Dyneema I had leftover from another project as well as some nylon loom material added as a chafe guard. I also added a small cord to assist in opening the loop (I may switch to zip ties if the cords don't last).

    For the soft shackle makers - what's the thought on this eyelet design:

    Those look great. I bought some that have the cord to help open the loop. I have been looking for something to use as a chafe guard, want to use nylon tube webbing.

    Personally I prefer the other design, not sure if either has an advantage. The design you posted might be easier to open.

    Added a fuel level sending unit to my fuel cell today. Just need to finish the wiring and a few bolts.

    Nice job. Is that a Summit sending unit? Looks much like the one I used on my Jeep.

    It's from https://fuelsafe.com/

    A lot of them are very similar. They sell them in all kinds of sizes.

    Cheap Chinese Seat Cover from AliExpress. Not too bad for $11.50 delivered.

    Not so much something I did - but I did pay for it.
    Just got my seats back from upholstery shop. My lowbacks are not original to my ecj5 - I believe they are from an intermediate cj5 - but they came with my jeep and work quite nicely, and I found them very comfortable. It was just the seams were ripping apart and some of the wire tensioners were broken etc. I look into (and even bought and returned) a set of the smittybilt lowbacks (Another Ecj5 Seat Replacement Question...).
    I did like the smittybilts and considering the price ($129 and can often be found at $99 during sale events) I thought they would be fine. Wife much preferred the original seats for comfort (much better bolster). So, for 3x the price I got the old seats re-covered and added seat heaters while at it. Again, its hard to justify the additional cost, but for my extra money I get to keep the fold and tumble aspect, don't have to fabricate any brackets to match up to the aftermarket seats, get better ergonomics, support and bolstering, a better marine grade fabric that should take more abuse than aftermarket, installed heaters, a happy wife who will enjoy riding in the jeep even more, and got to support an old local family business (highly recommend Klint's Custom Auto Top and Upholstery in Denver). After we agreed to the work to be done and price - he gave me the 'upgrade' panel and pleated seams along the longitudinal seams for no extra charge that I had wanted but decided not to pay for. These seams allow for more give in the fabric and reduce the stress on the stitching where the fabric often eventually rips out (as mine had done) and should increase lifespan greatly.





    I used these seat heaters per recommendation of the upholstery shop - they are the midgrade option with both the seat bottom and back heating elements and a low and high setting. They pull a max amperage of 4.5A per seat on high. Temp range is 101 - 109F for low-high. Now to get them installed...still getting some wiring together as its going to require a new fuse box activated on a relay.

    Look great and it sounds like you have a higher quality product, with a longer useful lifespan, while keeping cash flowing locally - thumbs up for me.

    James, I had an upholstery shop up in Thornton/Northglenn area install seat heaters in my Subaru last year. I'm surprised your upholstery shop didn't (wouldn't?) install those for you while they had the covers off. The job doesn't look to hard, but I was happy to let someone else futz with putting the upholstery back on correctly for my Subaru.

    The shop did do the heater install under the fabric when replacing the upholstery. I need to install the seats back into the jeep and fuse box with relay as I get a chance.

    Those look great.

    I have considered adding heating elements to my buggy as it has no source of heat except radiant from the engine.

    Another would be heated clothing / jacket often used in the motorcycle world.
