    Those half doors are nice, do they have glass windows in the upper? no zippers? if that's the case I may hunt for a set.

    If you are still looking, I stumbled accross a set of TJ 1/2 doors for sale. The same seller also has the same uppers as I have.

    Ha! you go the vibration part right! Feels like an old diesel at a stop light. No mind or bother to me, just different.

    Nice unfortunately a tad rich Mor my blood at the moment. Just recovering from a pair of custom drive shafts. The vibration started to make me feel a bit ill so I fixed it with some rubber.

    Update

    On my previous TJ the 4WD linkage was a nightmare after the body lift.
    My buddy was also stranded a couple of times because of his 4WD linkage.
    Because of this I had Staangs Fab install one of their 4WD linkage brackets that eliminates the body mount.

    I love the lettering out! when i was a child my favorite toy was a yellow jeep with the white lettering out... I think that's where it stems from.

    Done!!

    I appreciate it, most people hate the white letters out. Pain in the a$$ to clean, bit look so CQQL when rollin'. Sorta like the old muscle cars.

    Front Bumper

    Stock bumper removed & new front bumper all welded up.
    I am wanting to keep the bumpers as small and as tight body/frame as possible.

    I see no latch holding the tire swing, I have given thought to this type of retention mechanism, does it close and stay shut well? Excessive movement? Thanks

    It seems to stay shut well, so far. I have a 33" on it. I was not sure at first but after looking into other rear bumper / tire swing combos ( such as AEV) it seems like a lot of companies are doing this. I have been offroading a couple times with & bounced it around. No noise and still sitting nice and solid. Staang's Fab did the rear bumper / tire swing and has made a bunch like this. Best bet would be to speak to Eric or Jimmy. Hope this helps.
