If you had searched you wouldn't have had to make this topic.

That looks much better than the Brutes I've seen! Did you do all of that work yourself?

Yes, did it all singlehandedly in my home garage, except for three things:

1. A driveline shop lengthened the driveshaft for me, that requires specialized equipment to get the balance right.

2. I designed the modifications to the LJ soft top to turn it into pickup-cab size, and I reengineered the soft top frame myself, but I had an auto upholstery shop do the sewing, I don't have the sewing experience or a sewing machine.

3. A local auto body shop did the painting for me. I definitely don't have the equipment or experience to paint a show factory-quality finish.

Other than that it was all built in my basement workshop and garage.

That's one dam fine looking Jeep!

Having one of those would be a cure for the moments when I miss driving my Comanche.

I wish I had the time and patience to do a project like that...

Thanks. It's already lifted 2" and it's riding on 32" tires, but because the WB is 126", it doesn't look lifted. There was plenty of ground clearance for the trails at Moab EJS last month...
