Yea but with everything I've done in the last couple weeks I cant afford to go wheeling on the 26th. I saw about that wounded veteran ride in Sept though. I'd like to hit that up. I always try to support wounded veterans.
But it's Papa Dean's birthday....lol. Understood, but you still gonna go on Labor Day too?
So I have spent the last few days reading this entire build thread. Great reading and very educational. I am an old wheeler, new to the Jeep world (having just bought my soon to be 16 year old daughter a 1993 YJ) but not new to modding, having a '90 mustang 5.0 notch and a very mildly modded 7.3 Superduty. I am looking forward to what comes next. Keep up the good work and thank you for your service.
First thing I did was get the passenger seat frame all cut and tac'd in place
Then I figured before I start mocking up the passenger seat I'll finish up with the driver seat.
So after lots of measuring and getting in and out of the seat to find the perfect height and position, I trimmed up the mounting tabs I have and tac'd them in place. After tac'ing them I marked the spot for the bolt on my seat frame and pulled it back out to drill them out.
tabs tac'd in and the seat bolted in, driver side of the seat looks the same
Then I slung a set of harnesses on the seat to look into getting the mounts tac'd in.
for the hip harness I have 2 mounting tabs to choose from.
The first set are double sheer purpose built harness tabs. The only thing i dont like about them is how big and bulky there are. I will obviously notch and trim them up so they fit tight around the tube for a good strong weld.
The other option is these little seat tabs I have. They are 3/16" thick so they are tough enough for the task. The pro's would just be how small and low profile they are. They bad part is I'm not sure how much i can trim them down to fit snug on the tube just because how small they already are. Also with them being so small that means less weld area.
I'll probably end up using the bigger ones.

I know this has nothing to do with what you are working on right now, but I have followed this thread since I bought my jeep and copied a ton of ideas so I thought I would ask your opinion. I am redoing my tranny crossmember again and I basically have the same thing as you. A bushing at each end. Since those bushings allow play, have you ever thought of getting rid of the tranny mount in the middle. That way you could tuck the crossmember up higher? The only thing holding me back is the risk of cracking the tranny.
