For whoever's lookin to do something similar. Its not rocket science. U just have to make sure to measure reallllllly well for clearance on all sides and to remove/install the spare.
I would definitely be adding some front to back support to that thing, especially with that big a tire and wheel, it'll rattle it's way off there in no time otherwise

Im not sure what u mean by rattling off. Do u mean the tire rattling off the mount? Everything else is welded solid. The only type of thing that could really happen here is the crossbrace bending out of shape over time with the weight of the spare on there. But The cross brace is nearly twice as thick as the cage's DOM tubing. That thing is beef. I may add some gussets at the cross brace but even those are most likely not necessary. But i guess only time will tell.

Ya I'm gonna have to go get me an extractor set.

I checked out those twist sockets but it doesn't seem like the kits were all a but big and very pricy but awesome concept. Read a lot of great reviews.

As for grinding, there's no way I can get a grinder or even a dremel on the starter bolts, or a wrench for that matter. It's a socket only location

Thanks ok. I like the look of round lights on a TJ,CJ or JK but I feel the square headlights of YJ deserve square aux lights. And u can't deny amount of light they put out

They are bright indeed. I need to relocate my winch control relay box under the hood before I do it. I have been wanting to move that under the hood since the day I installed the winch. Looks ugly.
There is some hood glare, maybe some spacers would help. I didn't have the stinger bumper when I got the bar and I just thought it fit perfect there. I may do 2 more cubes on the bumper eventually.

Maybe paint the center section of the hood flat black. That looks really good when people do that. And it would probably look great on your rig too. That would cut down on some of the glare.
And I agree about the square headlight, square spots/floods. My Hella's are rectangle. Round lights look funny on a YJ. JMHO
They make rectangle LED lights too.
