SOOOO Heres an UPDATE

So I quess I can throw a update up...

Tcase and trans mount done. Sorry no finished pics.

This is my sides where the skid will meet and also mount slightly. Its 1/4" with braces inside and its fully welded and sanded smooth. Its on a 45* angle as well.




Bump stop for the rear are done.





Got my Cam for my 5.3 and got a LS1 intake because my engine sits a little heigher than most TJs with 5.3s. Heres some pictures of the SUPER tight clearance around the water pump inlet.





Found out that the little goofy "bump stop rubber spaces" on the air shocks are useless. and they folded over the bottom of the shock.

Here are some random interior shots. Its further along than these pictures but its where I started. NO THE SHIFTERS ARE NOT THAT TALL.... And I made some custom handles.





Next part Im working on is my rear suspension compression winch.
Design.



I had to lengthen the front upper arms because I made them short from the start. My bad. But its sanded smooooooooooooooooth now and painted.

Yeah those things are worthless, Ironmans did the same thing. You can pry them back over with a screw driver.
