    I made the upgrade on my old flattie, but I didn't use Herm's kit. Just FYI - on mine, the MC lid was VERY tight with the body brace. I wasn't using the stock body "bushings", but rather the aftermarket poly bushings - and they allowed just a tiny amount of clearance.

    Also FYI - the pedal tube was not welded on my CJ5.

    Do you mean "turn" like Steve (w3srl) mentioned? That, I didn't do. Everything remained attached to the frame. I just made a bracket to bolt the dual-chamber MC to, when welded it to the frame, in line with the pedal, and far enough away that the pushrod would work right. I also had the body off, that that made things much easier.

    I'm pretty sure I still have pictures. I'll post them tonight.

    No! not yet..

    I e-mailed him with pics.. Im sure he will contact me when he can!
    Also, i plan to fab a bracket (plate) to bolt/weld to extend the MC bracket! OR I was also thinking of just using his bracket and fab one thats alittle longer to fit better! or just drill the holes out more so I can move it over more!?! Its going to be a few day before i get time to mess with it so when i do i'll let ya know and post pic of how i overcome the prob... ;)
