If your going to do it. make sure you do it after you do all your modifications. The welder ruined parts of it when I installed the inter-cooler brackets. But o well, I only bought the grill for $40.

Finished my spare tire carrier up.


Got it as close as I could to the tub.




Then the winch plate was welded in and I made some upper plates to finish it off.



Then my GF wanted some time behind the torch, so I let her.

Chopped down the rear frame, moved the x member under the tub, and mounted the rear suck down winch.

Subbed. Man, how much will you have in this thing? I wish I was able to do this, but it'd have to be a salvage too. Couldn't do it to my TJ.

Completed the grill mounts, hi lined the hoop and did the front radiator hoop.




Then I moved on to the steering column, I wasnt needing any of the factory crap on there, so I removed it.
Before:

After:

I made a new spacer and I am going to tig it in place, but I ran out of argon today

So then on to the dash:
Took part of the side from the step van. Cut it to the length I need and scored the back of it.


Then I went to town. Jumping on it. pulling it down. And using everything I had.

4 Hrs later I get this:
