Would you be willing to share your paint color? I'm ready for paint on my rig but have been going back and forth between a blue or green. Really like your color choice! Oh and great work by the way!

It is camero synergy green. I also had a hard time deciding on a color so I asked my buddy Jeff "abigassbowtie" and he recommended the color. I think he nailed it. The color is looks amazing in person.

I am guessing they are drain holes.

Drew set it up so those holes correspond with the holes in his skid system, so you could bolt uhmw to his skid plate. (Clearance for nuts on back of his skid. )

No problem. I'm considering welding them up. I won't be using uhmw. Those are the only openings in that subframe, basically sealed after I weld.

I pulled the the jeep out of the shop to work on some other vehicles the other day so I figured I would snap a few pics of it outside while I was at it.

Any chance you can weigh it? Curious where it ended up. Looks amazing!

Thanks for all the compliments guys! I definitely plan to weigh the jeep once it is finished. I am guessing it will be right around 4500lbs.

How much clearance do you have between your firewall and back of the engine? For the LS Goat mounts, it looks like they're set where they go. On the small block Ford mounts, here's a little wiggle room. Hoping to mock up the engine and trans in mine this weekend without the tub.

It is pretty tight. Probably 1/2" of clearance.

How far apart did you set your front and rear frame tubes?
At what point did you realize that you had to bend new front tubes to clear the shocks?

The rear part of the frame is 36" to the outside of the tubes. I think the front is around 28" I think. I realized the original front section was screwed the first time cycled the suspension.

This thing is rad. Can you show some detail how your rear coilovers are mounted? It appears that they lean forward pretty far but not leaned in very much. The tire doesn't get into them when flexed out? lookin for ideas on the rear of mine. Thanks
