Thanks, mine is a little to far forward , but will work just fine. I still have to add the spacer I made to go between the bottom of the trans and the flat part of the mount. I just need to dimple the bottom of the tub just a little in one spot before I can.

It's just perfect. There's really no other way to describe it.

I think it will work, if not I have to build some kind of tray under the hood.

I would agree, almost perfect.

Thanks guys, I can finally see the end. I can almost visualize myself driving it. It's going to take some time getting used to the waves again though. It's been to long since I drove a Jeep.

it took me a while to get used to not waving at other jeeps after taking the yj off the road for the axle swap.
there isn't any unspoken dodge dakota wave unfortunately.
i wasn't able to get to tenn. this summer due to some extremely unfortunate events. maybe next summer i can get down to visit my friends and i'll get to see dumpster in person. i may even drive my rig if i think i can afford gas.

awesome build man, can't wait to see the first vid/pics of it being driven over curbs and prii (i had to look up the plural of prius, supposedly that is oficially it according to toyota)

It's going to take some time getting used to people almost running into you while they drive by staring at it.

The AW4 harness is completely integrated into the TJ harness along with the extended fuel pump harness for the stretched frame. Next week I plan on concentrating on finishing the remote battery bracket, and building some inner fenders and inner wheel tubs for the bed. Once the bed has inner wheel tubs in place it goes back on the frame for the last time. The front inner fenders will have a built in Air box with a cone filter for the air intake. Plan is to pull air from an opening in the bottom, the vent in the Rokmen fenders, and a removable access panel in the inner fender with 1" pre filters.

In Missouri visiting family this weekend so no work on the Jeep till Monday.
