Kinda hard to see from the pic, but I welded a 1/2" nut to the bottom side of the upper cover plate. That way I can stack pucks as needed to get the bumps set perfectly. I typically use hockey pucks, work like a charm!

Pucks on my '03 Rubi:

Was this a kit? If so, which one is it?

It almost just looks like a piece of pipe mounted somehow to the panel...perhaps??

i would put a strap to hold the flashlight in, if you flop it will become a missal.

Yeah... Should've explained it. Oops.

Well, its a pvc pipe bolted to the pop off panel that covers the gas release pull cable. In a zj, I'm not sure if the xj has this in the same spot. Most of my led flash lights fit in it so its pretty universal. The strap idea is a great idea too.

Edit. Tank, what kinda paintballing are you into?

rey7, for the 8ball shift ****

1. walk into a random bar with a pool table, put a buck in, grab 8 ball and leave.

2. i drilled a hole right through the center the same size as the plastic piece that sits in the shifter, then i drilled the bigger hole for it to sit on the metal portion of the shifter. i used a dremel with a stone to get it to fit very snug on there. i've still yet to make a better button for it but anything would pretty much work here. perhaps a cue tip if your really into pool?
