After seeing these pictures I just had to ask the question.
Are you a true LJ when you repurpose a wooden window for your car.

Or are you a true LJ when you build your own spoiler for your trunk lid?

Feel free to answer my question.

First of all, I would never do either of these 2 things but if a true LJ did either, you can be certain it would be done much better than these examples.

Here’s what a true LJ does when he doesn’t like the center console in his van.

No expanding foam here but I did make a small tray for my bare bones GMC truck…not enough places to keep stuff.
Having lived in Maine for a time I saw plenty of wooden/log bumpers, wooden truck beds and caps, some VERY well made, in those cases yeah they are LJ’s.

Window looks better than a piece of plywood and you can see through it. Are you sure that’s a spoiler? I was thinking mother in law seat and that would work. :-)

Looks like it is too secure to be a MIL seat.

Thanks all.
justfine, no thats the train station in Oakland MD. We do the farmers tailgate market in there on Saturdays.It has proved to be a very good show for us. The truck by the way was my father in laws truck. After he passed away I couldn’t stand to watch it rust up in a shed. It has spent its whole live on his farm. Considering that it only has 21,000 miles on it, and Russel kept it in excellent running condition , Judy and I decided to restore it and use it for our business. Its been a great store for us.

Mike that truck is just beautiful. I do enjoy restoring old trucks….dirty work, but like wood working it has it rewards after its completed.
Oh and the MIL seat…..to funny!
