I think I'll just sandwich the bumper between frame and skid.

Due to the additional thickness to the aftermarket skid? Seemed to fit ok otherwise?

Bumper hugged the frame tight. I don't think any skid would fit in between.

It looks like you already have corbeau's. Why are you getting new seats? Different model or something? I have been looking at corbeau's for a project, just curious.

I didn't feel I sat tight in them. Had no reclining seats in the buggy, I liked how I felt snug in them. So a buddy bought the current ones and I ordered fixed seats.

Does that mount out the seat completely flat or a little reclined?

I have the Corbeau brackets as well. It's shimmed to the angle I prefer. Just bolting to the floor, it leans back to far for my liking.

I've got the corbea jp and they bolt right to the yj bracket but they recline so much they don't fit in the half cab without being all the way forward and then I can't squeeze between the seat and steering wheel. So I'm just trying to plan out how much I want to recline them when I build a bracket

Well dropped the Lq4 off to the master chef. Excited to see what kind of recipe he comes up with.


I think of a engine builds as a soup. Requires just the right ingredients to taste good. That's how I explain it to customers atleast .
