spring perches and shock tabs, very ugly welds, but nothing has broken so far. i've gotten better since. plan on using the pre drilled holes in the perches to move the axle back 1" later

smittybilt rear tube fenders did not come with very good hardware. bolts were to small and were pulling through the pre-drilled holes. i swapped out for some larger ones from home depot with nice big washers. had to drill out holes in fenders.

re-route my exhaust. ordered a tj front downpipe, and had to weld in an autozone piece of pipe to my four bolt flange and the new tj pipe. worked out really good.
preparing for motor and tranny skid plate. don't know if you can see it, but my oil pan is concave from a nice ole rock.

first go at the skid row usa motor skid plate. two bolt holes in the teraflex skid plate, and the other front support mounts to the bottom of the motor mount.
wasn't convinced on strength and design. tested by jacking up vehicle from middle of skid. also so far, rocks have taken some paint, but didn't bend anything

bought some smittybilt seats, the original ones were trash. i also wanted to go ahead with some harnesses for my girl, and get rid of the frayed originals.
i didn't want to spend the money on some corb's cause i didn't have it at the time. i had to remove the sliding rails to make them fit, because they were sitting to tall.
had to test fit the seats multiple times to get my driver line up right for me. came out really good. i really like the harness, very easy to latch and un-latch. seats
have proved very comfortable and durable so far. my console is rubbing them bad, so i'm going to do something different there. maybe build a custom one. girl
feels much safer when wheeling and doesn't mind getting a little sideways or three wheeling.

decided to copy Louie4's idea with the spring plates. $50 later and i have enough to make all four. 3/16" angle, 1/4" plate, and 3/16" single for gussets.

first one, almost done. need holes and gussets. first was after weld, and then cleaned up and grinded down. will be better than homemade ubolt flip kit.

Very nice. When are you going to install those spring plates? Did you paint them yet?
