just get a razor knife and some kind of grinder (I prefer a Dremel but even a drill with cutoff wheel works good)
You can use a heat gun (or G/Fs hairdryer) if you want/need to bend a little. careful!
Yeah the cuttings not the problem. Just spacjng out the radio its self. I dont like din mounts so i used the factory stereo bracket to mount my new one. No big deal just boring lol

Yeah it was fine till any bump. Hitting the concrete transitions on the bridges that fast gave a little wobble. Scared a few other cars haha. No passenger to scare though =(

Girl friend might be getting this for her 98. Her suspension is pretty sagged out but her jeep is still in great shape. She also gonna get some new 235 duratracs

Anyone know if this kit includes the leaf bushings? I emailed them.

Yes i got very lucky. I was skeptical at first that it may have been clocked. But when i bought it after two years of sitting, all i did was put a jump box on it and it fired off the third try and runs like a clock. Im pretty confident that that is the actual mileage.
