    I believe from my conversations with Will he used the Artec brackets. They are out of North Salt Lake.

    Which axle truss/bracket kit did you use front and rear? Looks like great stuff

    Woah! looks like a pretty good sale going on for the Safari tops. Kirby, I found that top for sale used. It was one of the first production tops Gr8Tops made, and being as such there were many refinements made soon after. I had some things I didnt like about it for that reason and parted with it. It was unique and got some good looks. Being as how its not a daily driver it will most likely stay topless. Top ended up going to a Father and Son who wanted to build an FJ inspired LJ -the top was obviously the key component to their build.

    Very sleek build. That JK hood is a nice touch. Which lightbar is that you’re running?

    A TJ/LJ is 60" and a JK is 65" so approximately 2" wider on each side than factory but in the end it all depends on what wheels you run. I could have changed the stance drastically with some 3.5 BS wheels.

    How much wider are the JK housings compared to the TJ housing?
