I'm liking the direction you're going with the dash. What gauges are you planning on using?

Havent really decided yet, right now I just have advanced auto ones for the vitals and then I plug my bluetooth obd2 in and get whatever else I need off my phone.

I have had my eye on both glow shift and autometer but havent pulled the trigger yet with the dash not being done

I bought my LJ from Daveys last summer. With them it's as simple as if you see something you want, show up with cash ASAP. The can take a deposit to hold vehicles but don't make them wait or try to haggle. It's a business and that's how they operate, they answered all questions I had with 0 issues. I saw my Jeep on a Wednesday and the next day I was picking it up.

Nope I do not, I mocked it up and it looked horrible with that cross bar so far back. Instead of latching the channel down im going to either bolt or weld it to the windshield. I have been toying with the idea of an aluminum roof instead too

Its no joke. I had to winch 3 times. The scary part for me was that whats your in there the only way out is through and nobody else in my group was willing to drive in if I needed help. And If you break you have a 45 minute ride to the bottom of the mountain

Although short, Lions Den is a great must-do trail.
You got off to the left like I did and once you slide sideways you are stuck. The line is hugging far right. I was the first one in with no spotter and missed it.

It's not as hard as it is cool. Good for you for running it.
