yes. lol. my drag-link will touch the tierod on compression, as I'm running hysteer, and have a drop pitman arm, so I having to pull the arm off the steering bok and be swapping it for a more flatter one, S10 one, then a stock xj arm which I could use and get away with. be dealing with all that this weekend so will have pics on that to better understand it. But plenty of room to run 1.5" dom for a tie rod if I wanted to as will not hit the springs as they are mount above the leafs.

was asked about how I mounted the corners (hardware)....

shit you not, my buddy is a garage door installer, and he jokes that any rig that makes it out of his shop has something on it from his garage doors. And well my seats are bolted in using garage door bolts, they have a small shoulder and them and worked perfect, lol and the corners are held on by track bolts, have a flat side with a knurl on them, much like a wheel stud and just reached up between the bed sides and tightened the nut down and that be it. Again works great and nothing fancy and cost was a great savings that was had.

No it's not complete. Needs more stickers. You can still make out the back window.

That being said, looks good. Pat yourself on the back and have a beer.

raining some outside so messed around in the shop today. I had pulled the drop pitman arm from the steering box, now to find a flatter arm to use. But messed around with a overhead XJ console I had picked up a few weeks ago, wanted a place for my sunglasses and a better dome light that I can have to actually work when I needed it to and be able to not have to worry about it when I pull the doors. So picked up a set of rocker switches from a buddy and integrated them in the overhead and I like the way it turned out.
