Flat Belly Jk.

Been looking into doing a Flat Belly on our 012 Rubi 2D. I have tried to find as much info on this as possible but it seems that very few do this. Fewer after market parts as well.

Looking for other that have done this and or threads.

To date this is what I have come up with for a plan:
1. anti rock for the rear. To make room for the Gen tank
2 Genrite tank for mounting like a Tj. Relocate a real exhaust, dump the trumpet. Reomeve factory tank.
3. Here is where i am still looking into parts: Gen right makes a new Uni trans cross member, note that sure if its for 012"s but i can mode it.
$: Flat belly plate: Gen makes thes out of two types of alloy but dang they want like 2k+ just for the plate? I am thnking I could have local cut a plate for that out of unobtainium it seems for that kind of money?

Once this is done then i could get a real 4 link mounted inboard and tucked.

Thoughts, ideas?

Yep, GR's plate is overpriced....not to say that 3/8" 6061-T6 isn't expensive but you should be able to get a ~3x4' sheet and do the rest yourself for half the $$.

Was thinking the same, thanks man. Looks like I will just have to dive in and figure it out as I go. Read that a Tj tanks works with 3.8 much cheeper than a 1400$ gen tank. No one seems to know though if that would work with the Pentatick. Thats the trouble with newer jeeps you end up being the test pig.

Good thing is I can do this in stages.
