    All that droop makes 37s look small. Nice work!

    It sure does! As soon as they wear out I will be swapping them for some 40s. I have debated going to 42s but the cost is prohibitive.

    very nice, I Figured you and the shop added the rest of the tubes to the cage. I will be building a full cage as soon as mine stops being a DD, which is soon. I'm still on the fence if I'm gonna add to the stock roll bar or start from scratch. Your jeep is awesome, and thank you for your protecting are freedom.

    It's my pleasure to do what I do. Thanks for your support!

    I had a long debate about using a complete custom cage vs. reusing the factory. Honestly, the factory cage properly reinforced is pretty much equal in strength for our purposes and its much easier to build as it can index off the factory pillars. The tubing is not very expensive, you could reuse the factory cage and save a ton of time and money.

    It's unfortunate I didn't get to do as much wrenching as I wanted to do being overseas and all. However, now that I am in Alaska and have the Jeep plus a garage I plan to do a lot of upgrades over the next year. Starting in October I will be adding a rear anti-rock sway bar, new master cylinder, and other odds and ends.

    Very impressive build on your rig.
    I noticed that your top has a liner. Did you do that yourself also?
    Headliner is on my winter to do list this year.

    I had a soft top before and couldn't see spending upwards for $1,500 for a ten year old top, so I bought a new one from Camper King USA. The top cost about the same shipped to Arizona as a used top and is of much better quality. The headliners were included in the top at default pricing.
