And do yourself a favor and get a 4-3/8 hole saw. You may still need to file a bit

Bringin Rambeaux into the shop to remove 3 inch BL and 2 inch suspension, replacing with 4 inch economy lift by skyjacker and 1.25 inch BL. Replacing dented front bumper with new gloss black tube bumper, getting body painted turning it from Red to Matte Black, getting hard top painted black, rhino lining interior, and fixing breaks. WILL BE A GOOD WEEK

To he honest its not as undrivable as ppl make it sound. I live in nj so its pretty flat. I can do 70 on the highway. It's big and not meant to be fast lol. I have 4.88s for the front already but not the rear, gonna take longer to save since ill need a new locker also, plus then the labor.

Eventually. Doing it in steps.

Xm/sirius

Wife got me a XM/SIRIUS radio for Xmas that I installed today. I was leery about the antenna placement, but after reading posts on here, I went with everyone else's experience and placed it on the rollbar beneath the padding. Works like a champ, great reception. thanks so much for the input from fellow jeepers
