        We'll build something, I'm going to put a twin motor'd 8274 on it and I might need a little extra clearance.

              Haha, nothing works as well as an 8274! I've run one with a 9.5 XP motor conversion for years and its great. I think one with two 9.5 XP motors and a little Gigglepin love will only be that much better

                On a different note, I'm in need of a complete set of front and rear arms (preferably track bars as well) from a JK with zero to extremely low miles if anyone knows of a set. I'm going to mock up with them and try running them for a while. Hopefully they hold up as they are pretty easy to source in remote locales.

                    If you don't find any close to you, I am pretty sure that I've got a set of arms off my 2010 build that was three days old when we removed the suspension and went coilovers. I'm in FL so shipping might be an issue.

                          To clear the JK frame? The front highline fenders will need a little trim at the bottom, the rest will be accommodated in the body mounts. Obviously all the body mounts and bed mounts are wrong so I stripped the frame and will build my own.

                            You make it sound easy and minimal ..

                            I can't wait to see your solution for the rear section ..

                              No doubt its a very large undertaking, but with the group of guys I've got helping put it together it's manageable, hell it's even fun

                              Its been a cut/grind/remove party until now. The fun part is finally starting where we put it back together! We're still finalizing the body mounts and the rear frame rework but needless to say I expect the CNC plasma table to see some action in coming days.

                              As for today?



                              Motor placement and body placement were finalized, I spent the evening designing body mounts, and hopefully I'll start cutting and bending them tomorrow
