Middle left side has a long bolt and bottom right has a spring. Looks like that's it.

Spring hooked to bottom right corner, next to bolt hole for retaining ring and going back to grille/header panel.

You realize that not only are you creating a great Jeep but, you are also creating an almost limitless pool of potential son-in-laws in raising a Jeep Girl that can and wants to turn a wrench. lol Great build!!! Can't wait for the final unveiling.

98% DONE!!!! It is back on he road... Could not put the doors on yet because you cannot buy power coated hinges for a 94 or 95. So I had to buy stainless and take them to be powder coated. I also have not got the bumpers yet. It felt so good to drive down the road. I LOVE MY JEEP!!!

We have doors!! All that is left is bumpers and little odds and ends. Oh and of course the list of things that I already have going for after this project. It will never be done!

I'm not into chrome, but I think the move to bright eyes from black was a good one. Are those 31" tires?

I really did not want chrome either, but the black was too much. I may have them painted to match the body. We will see once we have the rest of the pieces on. Yes they are 31s
