The fenders are now mounted about 1 1/4 inches higher than stock. I suppose I could just move the mounting holes up and reuse the original latches. The tab for the latch wouldn't be on the flat section of the hood anymore.

That's what I did and it worked just fine. Depending on how much of an angle the top latch is on, you may have to kick out the lower mounting bracket a little bit too.

I've been looking for ideas for the passenger front seat since it is a pain in the ass to climb through to the back. Anyone seen a front seat setup like this?

They said they came from a CJ5, but I've never seen one with a folding backrest like that.

The pivot that is bolted to the bottom of the seat is the same as my 74 CJ5. I have an original seat that maybe I can modify. It needs to be recovered anyway.

Well cool, I think it's a good idea, nothing I've ever seen done

The 78 is going to sit for a while. I think the rings are shot in it, since it smokes like a freight train. So I got back to work on my 74.
I've converted the front to disc brakes, power brakes, and power steering.


Woot!
