Also, finally installed the Springtail Solutions JK Straddle. First I removed the shift knobs. Removed the four screws, disconnected the rear window harness, and lifted the console out. Next step, clean it! Cleanest it's ever been.

Next, drilled out the holes. Installed the nuts. Reinstalled the console with the four bolts. Bolted the straddle down.

I'm impressed with the fitment of this straddle! It's sweet.

Thanks, was going to pull the trigger on the $50 but don't want to pay the $15 shipping

Dropping the crossmember today if the rain lets up. Front Tom woods DS is rubbing slightly at full droop. Enough to cause a circular ring on it.

At the moment, I'm hiding from the rain under the jeep. I took a closer look at the driveshaft issue I mentioned in the previous post. Looks like I found the issue. The DS is hitting my transmission pan. I also see some wet areas on some of the bolts and the rtv seal. Definitely ATF.

FYI, GenRight made a significant design change, that is not reflected in the product description for their rear bumper in steel. Let's see how they respond to my email. Hoping they will handle this issue appropriately. I have really enjoyed their products in the past, so here's to hope!

Edit: Issue has been resolved.
