Hey Jim. Merry Christmas.
I was re-reading your post to see what saw blade you used for that cut pictured a few post up. I'm going to get one for when I make my winch plate.
You stated you cut 1/2" HRS. Can you explain what HRS is, and why you specified it?
Also, wanted to mention that when I finish my Scout build, I plan to install OME YJ springs on my CJ. While I'm at it, I will add in the steering box mount and receiver bumper. I will be ordering your parts for the conversion of course.
