Gonna figure something else out for those.

Gonna go to the JY today and get a front DS to do my SYE, an interior panel that I broke, and there was something else but I can't remember what it was.

You'll be fine.

Step 1 leave your purse inside. Then chalk infront and behind your front wheels, pull the stock rear ds, turn on the jeep (in 2wd) and put it in drive, the tcase shift will spin and make a nice level cut. When your drilling the hole don't be stingy with the cutting oil. It really helps.

JY didn't have any front ds that I could get to.

Quarter panel armor is coming today, and I am also doing my passenger side rocker today, woo.

When you get the quarter armor, I'm curious how much they weigh.

The package itself weighs 66.1 lbs according to Fedex, so I'm sure they weigh 25-30 lbs each.
