Awesome!


Measure with a Micrometer
Cutter with an ax
Beat it to fit
Paint it to match

This weekend I started putting my top an doors on.
I made a reinforcement system that braces the door latches to the roll bar for added strength. I didn't take pictures of them yet, but I will plan on tasking some tonight.

anyways here's a pic



Top is just sitting on for now, I need to finish attaching it and adjust the windshield angle to fit properly.

I'm not sure exactly. They came with the jeep when I bought it almost 6 years ago. Originally came with a skyjacker 4" lift, I imagine they are skyjacker shocks as well. If I get a chance I will measure them and post the dimensions

Pretty decent, it's still a Jeep mind you, but way softer than my old 4" lift I got rid of a couple of years ago

258 I6

All emissions controls were removed before I owned the Jeep.

I will have to take an engine bay picture and get back to you with it
