what side bracket is it? I think I have a spare, but cant remember what side.

EDIT: just looked, I have a spare passenger side caliper bracket if you end up needing one.

And she's on all 4s now. Greg got it figured out, so I don't need that bracket. But thanks man. Only things left are to plumb the brakes, drive shafts, vss, and fill all the fluids. Maybeeee have this this running this weekend. Not wheeling yet, gotta do some massive cutting in the front under the head lights. The stance looks nice.

Looking good man.

Glad I already got all that cutting out of the way!

Yeah I didn't really think about it too much. I'll probably end up doing something like what you did. Just cut away everything. But I know my passenger side header panel is broken and not much is holding the light in. Might have to fan something up when I remove the lower bolt on that panel. I'll figure it out all later. I just want to get this thing on the road. Rear might have enough to be OK wheeling, but front isn't even close. I can tell just by the lock to lock pictures Greg has sent me. Too much up travel and I'll be rubbing.

Hell yeah fellas. It is awesome to see this thing moving! What really sucks though, it is 99.99% ready to go home with marc. In fact he came down today intending to do just that. Unfortunately I had to let him go home empty handed because of ONE 5/16" bolt. That's right, one small bolt is the only thing stopping this jeep from being streetable. It's the specialty bolt that holds the H block in place which in turn holds the caliper on. Without it, nothing is holding the block, so it can walk out and let the caliper go free. Not safe for a long drive.

We took it around the block which is awesome. I need to bleed the brakes again because of a soft pedal, but it rode nice. Coilovers are a bit noisy, we're experimenting with a few different types of oils to see what makes the biggest difference.

Thanks Kanin!

David, it's not the bolt. It's the caliper bracket where the bolt hole is toasted, ovalled and cross threaded. It needs a new caliper bracket. The bolts are like a dollar or two from what I found.
