That's the final position of everything except the fuse box was bolted down flat as you can see in the last pic. I was able to reuse all the stock parts at or near the same position but other jeeps and stock under good configurations may vary.

No problem

I look forward to reading and seeing your build progress.
If your ever out west (wyoming/South Dakota) hit me up, some really good trails around.
No problem, if you have any more questions just ask. Think I will take some clinical rotations during my DPT school out west, maybe I will hit you up! Hahaha.

It's more annoying and you need to be creative. It does take time. Nothing is exactly skilled work but attention to detail does make the final product a little nicer. I used plumber strap and a few extra holes in the inner fenders to mount stuff. And some zip ties. Yep you read that right.

We each made our own. I don't believe we have templates. Basically make your mount plate and cross member then fit them together at the right point then clearance it for case body and or driveshaft. It's not too hard just have to take your time and check yourself often along the way.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

I know PA are sticklers for tire coverage laws
Thank you.

I haven't had any issues. I don't drive like a jerk and don't get pulled over. Few cops will pull you over for just the tire coverage thing I feel, and mine really aren't too bad. I think the coverage on the rear tires/throwing debris mud etc is the big issue and my rears are covered pretty well.

It also helps there aren't a ton of cops where I live. I do travel a good bit and see plenty but no issues so far.

How much of the Sand pearl paint did you have to buy?
No problem!

I bought 2 and had a partial left over from previous mods. 2 can do it but 3 will make sure you get the coverage you want.

Took a few days since they are highlines and I did all the painting etc plus turn signals hood pins etc.




The clear coat is very important for the color match.
