How mechanically incline are you? And on a scale of 1-10 how difficult would you rate it at

I have literally done nothing mechanically. It's probably about 4-5 the hardest part was getting the seat belt bolts off. It takes a size 50 torx socket

Okay that's a big pick me up, I'm pretty crafty with tools and ingenuity but just timid about ruining the board. Glad to hear it wasn't hard, all I need now is come cloth and glue

I just used a old shoe brush to get the old foam off. It took me 1 hour to do that but I'm a perfectionist and my friend came over with his new to him tj so we went and had a little drive. It's amazing how many more jeeps wave to you when you're in a wrangler....

I'll keep posted when I start mine and it's annoying isn't it? Nothing is worst when the children of high school ask why I don't drive a "grand cherokee"

Or at autozone when you say "I drive an xj" and they look at you with a blank state then you say "Cherokee" do they assume you mean grand Cherokee. It gets kind of annoying

Okay so far the only downside to the bed liner is it smells like a Sharpie farted.

I just read about someone talking about structural integrity if you cut the doors off but at quadratec they sell tube doors so I doubt it would affect it?

Would frame stiffeners add to the structural integrity?

Doors have nothing to do with structural integrity and yes, frame stiffeners do.

If I were to take the doors off, frame stiffeners would be priority one
