Good progress this week. Rear T Case mount done. Tranny mount almost done.
Tomorrow we will start the engine mounts.
We mounted 2 Krawlers on some Allied wheels we had around. Those wheels are offset at 4.5". I think I will go with 5" of offset.

Some pics of today

Rear t-case mount by Genright



Looks like Miesers Flatty





Rear Coilover

Good progress this week.

Front suspension has lower links, panhard mounts and coilovers mounts. Only thing left are the uppers.
On the body department, we are almost done with the floor.
Theres a big chance that we will have a rolling chassis in one more week !!

Awesome. Damn it Sebastian, now you are making me wish I would have extended ours at the door!

This thing will be a work of art. When you get this done we should meet up in Moab or run the Rubicon trail with the jeeps.

Keep going! I want to see the stance of this bad boy!

Nice work! Do you have a picture of the tunnel around the accelerator pedal area? That was a total pain in the butt on mine. I liked how you where able to just raise the entire stock tunnel.

Floor and tunnel done.
Only thing pending on the suspension is the track bar.
Next week onto the steering and rads/fan mounts.
