sweet thanks man... the install was not to bad.. he built the kit VERY well and it fits really tight.. which can be a pain cause you have to do it just right to have it fit.. but with some persistence it fits perfectly... there was no drilling needed.. But it has 4 bolts on each side that go through 4 holes in the frame.. you might have to ream them out to make the holes line up and the bolts go through.. i didn't need to on 3 of them on each side.. but the 4th didn't line up so i just didn't put it in.. it was solid enough with the 3 and the bolts by the sway bar that i didn't worry bout it.. make sure if you tell him if you have the front factory skid plate.. he didn't leave holes in my bracket to bolt the factory plate in so i welded it to his bracket.. i have the first bumper so i told him he needs to incorporate the hole for the skid plate into his next kits.. hopefully he did..

As for grinding the frame, i had to take about 1 1/2 inches of each bottom corner.. just like taking a triangle shape out of the bottom corner.. not really a big deal..

Nice build thread

We had a great time wheeling with you guys. You need to come out west and do Rubicon with us (we are going July 15-17 I think)

Chris,Shawna, Alison and Rachel

P.S. Shawna and I both think the GF is a keeper

Maybe yours can look like this when it grows up
