Rust Repair Part 6: Turning A Patch Panel Into A New Cargo Floor Pan
XJ Build

Building Out The Cargo Floor I didn’t want to try to salvage the original cargo area floor from my Jeep. It had rusted through in several spots, and I kinda chopped it up into several pieces because I only removed bits of it as a time when I was fabricating the new frame rails. Read more...

Rust Repair Part 5: Designing A Custom Gas Tank Cradle
XJ Build

Directly below the floor of the XJ in the cargo area sits the gas tank. Tucked tight between the frame rails it rests a mere 1/2" from the floor. The mount for the gas tank is also what braces the floor in the cargo area. Read more...

Unity - LiteNetLib's Delivery Methods

While LiteNetLib may run on UDP (User Datagram Protocol) which is an unreliable network protocol, LiteNetLib offers multiple delivery methods, some of which even offer “reliability”.
