I would avoid running the cable thru the door like that. Over time the door will cut the line or break the wire in the middle causing issues and possibly frying the CB

I hooked them to the D rings on the side. I carried chain extensions as needed.

My PSC light mount came in but the screws for the end of my light bar are just a hair to big to fit in the holes already in the mount, I guess I'll have to drill the hole out a little bit. Also got a new 3"x30' CESS recovery strap.

wheel looks tilted because fender is bent

You might also want to check...under the grill where it meets the frame there are some rubber bumbers...you might see if the space between the frame and the bottom of the grill is equal from side to side. Mine's not anymore

Anyway, my point being, there a number of things that could be crooked, throwing your eye off to look like something else.

We'll see soon enough. Picking up my CCFABS hoodlines as we speak from the powdercoater. At Least that's one thing I don't have I replace...

Ordered a new windshield frame this morning. It will arrive Friday. Filled all fluids except tranny. When I get the windshield on Saturday ill get it towed for a full service. Then I pray I'll be able to drive it home. Still in search of a new passenger door.

Keeping the hood dented. Ironically I had ordered a die cut "it's a jeep thing" sticker the night before the rollover. So ill put that on the hood next to the damage ha

If you didn't have spacers under the grille, it might have tweaked it a little. Mine's out of whack by a pretty good amount, but you have to inspect very closely to notice it. You probably won't know how badly until you get the windhield on there, adjusted properly and try to put a top back on it.

Are there any puckers/wrinkles in the sheet metal on the tub, on the passenger side behind the front fender?

Check that little roll bar connecter bar between windshield and rollbar...those usually bend....you can get replacements from Daveys for like $20....if you plan to replace full soft top and/or hard top, or full steel doors, I think you'll want to make sure you have that adjusted properly.

The bars looked pretty straight when I took them off. On my way home from the powdercoater. Ill recheck when I get home. I do have the spacers under the bumpstops with the BL. Ill check that too.

I don't know I think the jeep looks a little tilted

Thanks for the input. I intend to get a low-profile coax and run it through the windshield frame. This is just a short-term solution.
