Another Craigslist score:
I picked up a stock Yamaha Rhino seat for $15. Gonna fab up a bracket for it and mount it in the back in place of the bench seat, slid to the passenger side. My daughter will have a seat and I'm going to build an "L" shaped box for storage. - That's the plan anyhow.
The mount I made. Real easy, I took some 2x2 sq tube, drilled holes in it to attach to the seat, then welded some 1.5" tabs on the bottom. I put some nutcerts into the floor and bolted the seat mount down.
My daughter (age 11) loves the seat. I think mostly because it's "hers" heh. But with it being a slight bucket, I think it will keep her from flopping around while rock crawling. The bottom part is a little smaller than the OE bench seat, so she gets more leg room. I sat in it (I'm on the big side) and I fit fine in it too.
Well, I'm Locked and Loaded. Huge thanks for Brothers 4x4 for taking great care of my jeep.
In all honestly, they didn't do anything that other shops, or even myself could do, But they did it fast, cheaper than I could have done it myself, and their attention to detail is amazing. - It's the little things they did, like johnny joints (free) Painting the ridiculous looking red springs, How they ran the air locker supply lines, wired the switches, They even moved the switches for my off road lights and didn't charge any more for it... they done good. and the guys there are cool as hell.
On with the pics:

Done. These guys even brought some rocks in to test their work on.
They were very specific with the diff break-in procedures. I need to get 500 miles on these diffs and change the oil before Thanksgiving weekend.
-Oh! I need to get a pic of this, but I had asked them about diff covers, the PSC covers don't have a drain in them, so they drilled and tapped the bottom of the housing and MADE a drain... It's gonna be real easy to change the diff oil.
Considering I have the same rear bumper, I like that kilby gas tank skid.
Can you take a pic of it with more light? It looks like its even with the bumper but if it only raises 1" I'm guessing its not bcuz my tank hangs lower than 1" below the bumper.
I like this build, well done. Im going LCOG as well but not for a while as I'm still only on 31's.
I like the rear bumper too, I actually took the bolt out, removed the nuts too, cut off the big nut from the tire mounting plate, then I cut a piece of solid bar at 15* and welded it back together. Gives me more exit angle, moves the tire closer to the back end of the jeep so there's less stress on the carrier. And I think it looks cool. Kinda 'jeepspeed' pre-runner looking.
