    That looks great! I love the mounting kit you used and the way it sits in a "high steer" position..

    Are you keeping a log of how many hours you are taking to do this build. A shop would charge $100/hr for mechanics, and $125/hr for fabrication. I would like to know how much you saved by doing it yourself. I think when you are finished, this will be the coolest XJ I've seen. Can't wait.

    Thanks buddy. I couldn’t have done this without the help of my buddies fab skills.
    Not really. My buddy who’s doing the fab work said it’s about 10k in fab time. Can’t wait for it to be done so I can get out on the trails finally.
