Yeah that was all custom fab work, although in talking to him it sounds like he is considering making at least the MJ rails a regular production item. The rails are probably similar to XJ rails at the front with 2 arms to the frame and pinch rail atachments under the body, but where they extend out under the bed there is a 3rd arm with extra bracing for it since there's obviously no pinch rail there to attach to.
The rear bumper is bolted to the lower quarter of the bed in several places and the diamond plate extends about a quarter inch below the sheet metal and wraps under it slightly to protect it a little better. I didn't want to just cut that away because my bed is in such good original condition.
I kinda like the look, but not having a rear reciever really wouldn't work for me. Nice looking rig though.
I went without the hitch for a few reasons mainly because the small amount of towing I do is all with my XJ and I wanted to keep it as low profile as possible to improve departure angle.
I'll be lifting it over the next few weeks and will post the pics of it then on 34" LTB's it will look alot better.
