The don't only mount in the visible locations on the side of the tub but they also mount up under the tub as well. You can kinda see the holes in my set.

See the holes that are for underneath?

Sorry in the long delay with more pics, but I just got the painted parts back on Friday night, and haven't been in town much. I have started reassembling it today, and this is where it stands so far.

I have the roll cage sitting on the floor in front of the Jeep.



I have both front fenders on, here is the passenger side.



Here is the rocker and the comp corner on the passenger side as well. I will get more pictures when I am done assembling and cleaning up some electrical junk.

MR. CLIFFORD, is that the standard BTF01002 TJ bumper, or is that something they made custom? I'm looking at getting that, but all they have is a 3D computer image. Thanks

That is not the part number for my bumper. That one extends out past the frame. Mine has some end caps that require welding it to the frame.

You can kinda see here how my bumper doesn't stick out.



The 1002 sticks out.



I'm not exactly sure what the part number is. I could dig through my pile of receipts but it is way at the bottom and I don't have the strength to search that far. LOL! You might call them and ask which bumper it is. Let me know before you order it.

I think I almost have my wife convinced at this point that the Jeep will be driveable again sometime in the future... Maybe even this year!!! She was beginning to think that I had just started a scrap yard in the garage!

Hell that's normal. It looks like I have a scrap yard in my garage just from junk for my jeep that I don't use anymore. Why does a guy need two soft tops when he doesn't even use 1 of them?

Looks at least like 1 3/4" .120 wall.

What he ^^^^^ said. This cage is much heavier wall than the stock tubing, and is tied to the frame in 6 locations. Most full frame buggies are build with this size DOM tube. If I ruin the cage, that will be the least of my worries!

I gotta say that is one sweet Jeep Jeeperman, nicely done man! I'm surprised to see you're still running the OE antiswaybar though, I would have expected an Antirock or ORO Swayloc by now... or maybe that's just on the to-do list.

There was about 50 hours of fabrication in the fenders, cage and comp-corner install. That is highly trained fabricator (good friend builds race cars and competition rock crawlers). I had about 8 hours of wiring/figuring/researching to figure out what to do with lost signals in the front. I had another 10 hours of assembly and touch ups in paint, and about 6 hours to tear the Jeep apart and I haven't put the carpet back in the interior yet (may just Rhino-line it). So if you work on this like it's your job, you are looking at a couple of really long, tedious weekends, plus paint time in between. I actually had the Jeep torn down in some stage or another for this project since the middle of November for budgetary reasons mostly, but I am glad I was able to take my time and do all neccesary research and I think that I will not have to redo anything that was done at all, but only time will tell.

I have disconnects, which I am pretty happy with on the trail, and I would love to have an Anti-Rock (maybe as a Christmas present this year), but I had other things on the list, so it was a casualty of budget cuts... But the stock anti sway bar makes it a really nice ride on the freeway at about 75 MPH. I love the look on other driver's faces!

Looks REALLY good! I really appreciate the side shots too. I haven't seen a good side shot of the FT kit and this fit the bill.
