alright.. life has been a real PITA lately, but things are starting to look up so i'm able to start working on my projects again. for starters, I put my jigs to use and whipped up a full set of vents (2 sets actually) really happy with how they turned out.

also picked up some hardware that I think will work for an idea I have for the front portion of the sleeping platform. I think i'm ditching the idea of having it permanently attached to the base cabinet, and will be going with a removable type setup instead.

So how do the Windows roll up with those vents? Do they slide through? Just curious looks good though.

i think i read one one of the earlier pages that you just roll up the window to the bottom of the panel and use it to hold them in place.

For when you decide you want to sleep in the Jeep. You'll be able to get a nice breeze going through it and keep the bugs out.

^^ what they said. most of the time when camping I'll be sleeping in the RTT. this is more of a backup in case the weather is complete crap, or if I get to a site and just don't have the energy to setup the whole thing. the vents will let me enjoy some fresh air without being devoured by mosquitos.

Great looking build so far buddy! I'm really impressed with the rear storage box, very clean work. Can't wait to see more!
