Looks nice in the stock location. I have been looking at these to put in when I do a LS swap in my LJ. Was it as easy as it looks to install it there?

Yes/no. Lol.

I had to remove the plate that was bolted on the floor and make a new one, trim the center console, I put some nutzerts in the floor. The outside 4 bolts go down into the floor, middle 4 just bolt the Spacer plate to the shifter. I won't have the parking brake, but trying to keep that would of conflicted in the cable and shifter arrangements.

Didn't get as much done as I hoped. Still waiting on a few parts for the rear suspension.

Worked on setting up the rear 4link. Pretty sure more time spent texting and playing on the calculator then under the jeep.

Looks good. I bet you spent more time working on your jeep then I did on mine. I brewed beer instead
