    Do you take the stock heater box out with that? What about defrost?

    Got some misc work done on the frame today..
    Started the running the rear brake lines...
    76-86 SS flex lines do not work with the 73 pre bent SS lines..
    Need some adapters... :shock:


    Motor frame mounts positioned.. and of course 72-75 Jeeps require some "drilling modification"


    New lower shock studs made.. better alignment with the top studs.

    Odd question....


    Anybody mount a fiberglass tub or repli tub without scribe marks?
    I was just thinking what would I have to reference that the tub is in the correct position...?


    I haven't actually mocked the tub on the frame yet.. So if there is an 'ah ah' factor here I apologize..
