Fix Front Clip Wobble

Buddies CJ7 has a really loose front clip. He cut the fenders for a flat fender/competition look (bad idea if not done right), some of the fender sheet metal is breaking from fatigue from constant movement, etc. All mounting bolts tightened up but still a lot of wobble. Serious threat fan will eat radiator. 30 minute project completely fixed the problem. Add some angle iron in a diagonal fashion. Now its 100% solid and no movement. So much benefit from so little effort-- added one to my scrambler too.

Who is John Galt?
