That sounds like it. I can only do very little work in the afternoon after work it I'm sure it will be tried on by next weekend. Maybe they will be pink in the end.

Maybe your corners could be pink. That would be a nice contrast.

Send the red one with it and you've got a deal.

Did you get full or short corners?

Well, we started installing the ucf ultra high skid. Test fitted the belly skid fine (without the center Allen bolts attached) and added the engine skid which contacted the exhaust. Took it all apart and removed some of the engine skid material and painted. Also we marked where he material was needed to be removed from the stock muffler hanger/tranny mount.

Modified tranny mount





New lopro mount



Removed part of engine skid



After it was painted, we put the belly skid back on multiple ways. First we bolted the skid to the frame and couldn't get the new trans mount to get into shape. Then we tried bolting the skid to the trans mount first and the frame bolt holes would not line up. We did get the skid up high and noticed the tub was contacting in a few places.


Above the driver side on tc



Same shot, different angle



It also was contacting just above the 3rd cat. After we saw that, this fell out....



Then a hammer hit here and there.



After I removed the heat shield, I realized I couldn't jamb, hammer or manipulate the tub enough for what I was needing.


Them as we ran out of light, I was thinking: the skid will mount up to the frame but won't line up with the trans mount (with the exhaust hanger installed) and will line up with the trans mount, but them won't line up left to right. The exhaust is completely stiff in it's place. I think tomorrow we will mount everything up without putting the exhaust hanger in. If everything fit this way, I will take it to an exhaust shop to remove the third cat and reinstall the hanger and get the hangers height shortened after the jeep in on the road.

More tomorrow.

Red can be yours , credit cards are accepted . And I got the full corners , just need to get off my butt and install them . Right now they are making an excellent table for my Mac's air intake .

That is some good news. I will see if that is what needs to happen or if I just need to cut down the height of the exhaust bracket.

Nice I thought you had them already. Who did you go with?

Well, we got it installed without the exhaust hanger installed.





Clearances around he exhaust.


It only took quite a few ratchet straps.



Cat converter is just sitting on top there.



We also removed everything but the links off the rear axle. What are the things the top of the shocks called? This one is slightly tweeked but the other one is perfect. Do I need to replace them or can reuse and how do they get removed?



O, and since I don't have an enclosed work space and since my drill and grinder walked off sometime last week..... Everything will now be stored inside until it gets attached to the jeep. Honesty, I am just glad those are the only thing to walk away.

Also, the front transfer case drive shaft bolt was stripped and slightly loose before we started yesterday so I used a cutout wheel to remove it. How can I remove this?



And my front ar 'wing' is pretty twisted.

This is a bar pin , mine were bent from over tightening . I re used them and have had no issues .

You should be able to clamp some good vice grips to it and turn it out .

Almost finished the front bumper modifications and worked on removing all the underhood junk. Got everything off from the passenger fender but that hard mounted ac evap line that is multi-bent might cause some problems since I wasn't planning on having anything that 'far out' from the body.

If the current one could just be rotated 90 degrees clockways (if looking at the front of the jeep) everything would be fine.

Got the hood mounted and finished the mods for the front bumper/light. I think the tire will sit a little further from the body in the end. And the hood is sitting a touch above where it will be in the front because the hood's fenders are contacting the top of the factory fenders. The hood had a few scratches and dings around the edges because the packaging came open in shipping.

The hood looks awesome .Are you going to cut the fenders along the blue tape ? Are do you plan on making a filler panel ?
