That will look good.

I took the buggy and wighted it today and started the bump stop pads as well. I came in at 3710 with out me in it and no tool but a full tank of gas. I figer about 125lbs for the hood, skins and core support so not bad its about what i was wanting.

How would you compare the visibility in the new buggy to one of your old YJs?
The cowl looks really tall but it could just be that the upper windshield bar is really low.

I wasn't sure how I felt about the lines of this rig, but the hood and grill made the whole truck. Looks awesome. Congrats on a sweet build!
