Looks good man. I like the tight approach angle you get with such a thin bumper like that.

Did you have to do any fancy fab to get the speakers to fit? I've heard mixed things, just want to be sure before I plunge to 6.5

Basically what purple said. Just get some self tapping screws and they fit fine.

And went camping for some friends. We got busted for sleeping on state propery and underage consumption. Whoops. But the cops let us go for free which was extremely generous. Pall the cops loved the jeep and we're asking a ton about it aha and then there's a huge hill you have to go up to leave the place and they waited for me to leave to watch it go up aha.
