For unibody plating I used 3x3x3/16" angle for the "frame" rails and cut out 1/8" plate for the front (haven't burned them on yet)

For stretching the wheelbase and fitting bigger tires I used 52" chevy leaves in the rear and removed alot of that unnecessary sheetmetal (still need to finish them up).

does anybody know how picky they get with having a comp cut wrangler still on the street? I already have front tube fenders and wanted more clearance in the back.
