Added 8 recessed tie down loops. Router died about 4.5 holes into it. Had to drill a lot and hammer and chisel out the other 3.5 holes.... Chisel was actually a pry bar, making it even harder to do.
4 across the front, for dual motorcycles if needed. 2 in rear corners. 2 in the middle.
Should assist with any tie down issues.
May add another one in the middle rear.

Now on to some L.E.D. back-up/reverse lights on the tailgate.... And little clear L.E.D. marker button lights on the sides to assist backing in the dark.

Ran wire down the side frame tubes (awaiting LED backup lights to arrive - ebay).
Had some clear LED marker lights that i wanted to put around a trailer to illuminate the surrounding area of the trailer when backing up. Didn't have the hardware (metal screws) to mount them on the square tubing, but did use the supplied bolts to mount to the rear fender.

Marker lights work pretty good. Pics don't do it justice.

Plan to add markers to the front corner posts facing rearward to illuminate the wheel/tire and one on the sides of the tailgate to project out..... As well as the 6" oval LED back up lights facing rearward (on outer tailgate tubes).

DONE! Well, for now. Side markers at rear and oval LED reverse light on rear tailgate/ramp.

Also added Superbright LED reverse lights to stock Jeep housings.

Soon, will be doing some reverse lighting to the car-hauler as well!!!!
