Is this the one you want to make the truss for? What axle?

My JB conversions SYE came in today, Savvy LED tails will be in tomorrow. Along w/ the steering box skids (and the OPDA I have yet to install) I have a busy weekend ahead!

No sir, that is for the front axle (HP44) that I already have.

Actually, the skids will probably be the easiest/least involved of the group. I'll have them done this weekend, I am sure

And I can't really do the sye yet, I have no rear upper control arms. Time to give Metalcloak a call I guess

Welp, that 10% chance of rain turned into a downpour. I'm sure many were amused seeing me driving doorless in the rain. I stayed surprisingly dry. But my tarp is a little too small so there is a gap at the bottom of the doors and in the back. May have some damp floorboards when I go home.

Lol I've driving in the rain more than a few times. I never had the top on my old JK.

I did a couple times in my first TJ. Never in my LJ or new TJ though. I hardly ever have the top down completely (safari top for the times I do) and NEVER run doorless.

With my windows out and only lower half doors, my cabin stays pretty damn dry.

I didn't get tire spray like I expected. I did however chirp the tires pretty good leaving a couple red lights. Not used to the newfound power in rain.

Probably going to strip it and bedline it before long.

Bought time you got rid of that ugly yellow paint!

Both of my Jeep are bedlined. I love it. Make sure you pull ALL of the drain plugs beforehand, even the metal ones. Dont just bedline over them.

Do you notice it being any hotter in the cabin with it?

No. The transmission being less than an inch from the floor board adds some heat though.
