At this point I personally recommend skipping them, but before I got the D90 I ran "NO D90" on my jeep, and now have "GOT D90" inspired by the Got Milk? campaign but no-one gets it.

I use to run 'JEEPETR' way way back when I got it. Unfortunately the Jeep crowd didn't seem to take the joke too well, so I went back to a regular tag to avoid the hassle on the trail..

Nope, just thought it would be a cool plate, I have the standard green and white plate issued by the state.

Thought about using my UK reg plate number but I did not want to pay 100+ per year for a fancy plate

I have been amazed at how little rust it has on it. I have yet to break a bolt and most of the bolts still have a silver or gold color to them.

Considering it lived in the UK 25 years it is in great shape.

Good thing about Minnesota is that the vanity plate is a one-time charge.

Hey Chris! The guy I bought my '95 from back in '99 had that plate! It looked pretty cool 4X4XFAR. He took the plate with him as a momento and his next vehicle was a VW bug so I can't imagine he transfered the plate (can't remeber if you could still do that back then). It may just be available!

Just recalled that the same guy with FINS2L had UPKEEP on a CJ-7 that he used to have.

I built the hitch from a piece of 6" channel, a piece of 2" angle and a receiver tube from Northern. Its similar to the one Rovers North sells but it only cost me about $18 to make it...

Not really - all you need are three pieces of metal, a Bosch jigsaw, a heavy duty hand drill and someone who can weld them together for you - think of your pride of accomplishment when you build one your self!

Rovers being what they are - the hole pattern has enough small variations where you almost have to custom fit the hitch to the rear crossmember so its really best to make your own.

The three pieces you need are:

8" length of 6" channel - about 1/4" thick
14" length of 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 1/8" angle
Receiver hitch tube from Northern - around $14-$18

Notch the lower edge of the channel for the receiver tube (tight fit is best), bevel cut the upper legs of the channel. Cut a notch in the RH vertical leg for the hitch pin to clear.

Notch the vertical leg of the 14" angle to fit over the tube. The vertical leg goes toward the rear and the uncut leg goes across the top of the receiver tube facing forward. Test fit the pieces and mark the hole pattern in the rear crossmember on the channel and also where the two holes that are in the bottom of the cross member will line up with the horizontal leg of the angle iron. Drill undersize pilot holes (8 [laces) as well as the two holes for attaching the chain. I can't remember if I had to shorten teh receiver tube by an inch or so to clear the gas tank - maybe but it wasn't much.

Tack weld the receiver tube in the channel so the forward edge of 5/8 hole for the hitch pin is about 1/2" forward of the web of the channel. Slide the notch in the 14" angle down over the top of the receiver tube behind (forward side) of the channel with the horizontal leg facing forward and tack in place. After some test fitting weld the heck out of all the joints (front and back) and step the holes up to finish size, bolt it up and tow away.

I was poking around the MVA site today and found that "D90" was now available in Md, so I grabbed it.
