You could do just a custom back section. Nice work on the rebuild.

That was the original plan but it is covered in line x and I have already discovered how much I hate grinding and welding around that stuff. I could strip all of it off but in the end I would just end up with a pieced together cage. The middle is stock. The front is an OR Fab kit and the seats mount to a custom rack.

The original measurements before the latest build was 21.75" clearance under the belly pan and 29.75" under the rockers. Those measurements were taken with worn 37" MTRs, SOA front w stock height springs and a custom 3 link rear. I'm gonna take the new measurements tonight. I'm hoping for around 19" belly pan clearance. Also had a 1" BL originally.

Wow. Belly pan clearance is now 16.5". No wonder it handles so well on the road. It's as low as a go cart. I'm only running 4" of up travel w 14" travel shocks so ill bump them up a little

Anyone going to Adventure Offroad Park this weekend near Chatt, TN? Should be a fun event.

Picked up this serpentine belt conversion kit from Bull Tear for my AMC 360. Looks sweet in billet.

GenRight sent the wrong corners. They will ship the correct ones out no problem. I was supposed to receive the LJ blanks. I put these up to see how things would line up. The LJ rocker is much longer which leaves a gap in front of my rear wheel well. Also, a LJ is 15" longer than a CJ, YJ or TJ. I only stretched my body by 12", so I will have to trim 3" out of the door opening and re drill the flared holes for the counter sunk hardware.

Mine is always home when brown santa drops off the box. No hiding it from her, but then again she couldn't care less.

A little radius trimming and add some to the rocker and that will look good.

When I get the blanks, I'll cut out the wheel opening and use that material to fill in the rocker
