Wb?
Did you forfeit any seat room in the back with the dovetail? It doesn't look like you did at all. Interesting to see it all.
Why'd you scab the links that way? Plans to redo them?

shooting for 109 maybe 110 for the wb. as for the rear space i did not lose any floor space still can use a stock tail gate and/or if i wanted to put a seat/s back there i can. sorry for the pics only showing half of it but my 2 car bay garage is not very deep so its hard to get a full back view of the jeep... ill get a better pic when i get the jeep rolling around. as for the arms i am redoing them they are just for mackup

and set the rear end down on the bumps stops just to see how low it really is





it is only 45" to where the body roll in just below the soft top rail at full bump in the rear :eek::eek::eek:
