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.

What shocks are you running that allow that much droop?

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

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
