    Brother, you are doing more at 15 than most people do in an entire lifetime! Outstanding work and thought process. Good luck and keep her going.

    And you are right - it's going to be badass.

    No. Your the one with metal working skills. Looks awsome.

    Thanks guys. I bought some pedals out of YJ, will the bolt up to my cowl and firewall? I figured they had to be close since a YJ has the same tub as a CJ7.

    I'm gonna go up to the garage and get some welding done.

    The rear is boxed in, tomorrow I'm gonna knock out the middle. I still have a little welding left but it's almost done.

    Plated the front with some 1/8 for some extra strength. The other side already has 3/16 on it in the same area for the steering box, the PO did a nice job welding it on so I'm gonna leave it.
