Woohoo 4 more tubes in. After we got the center roof bar installed, I got to work on the diagonals and JeepM715 welded up a bunch of the cage.

Put in the windshield bars. This pic is from more straight on to try and show the bend is the right place.. but now it looks like center bar might be tilted over a bit..

Big crew tonight. Big thanks to AlumCJ, Hosejockey, JeepM715 and his nephew Jake.

A few more bars in since last update. Rear shocks are partially in; we need to finish up the double shear on the upper mount and install the driver's side lower mount. Removed some more body to make it easier to weld shit in. Added under hood bars and a few other bars here and there. Trying to figure out final shock placement and were the support bars will go around the radiator.

There might have been some bench racing, too.

The good news is that you won't need a gps with those short course tires.

Front shock on pass side. Still needs gussets, a couple of tubes, and copy on driver's side.

We did some flexing and it looks like the shock will tuck nicely into the dip in the frame and should be clear of rubbing tires, even 39s on H2 wheels if need be.
