New Rubicon T-case just came in!
Supposedly the truck hauling new vehicles to the dealership flipped over and they parted out the jeep. Should have 0-1 miles on the t-case!

Trump shirt, gotta love it.

Oh Jeep looks good too. Where are the fenders at? Thought you needed them in that backwoods state.

Had to pull the fenders off before wheelin it. The tires would get into them too much and I am planning on selling them as soon as I get the new narrow MCE's,(which show to be delivering on Friday!) so I don't want to damage them.

Your build came out looking fantastic.

What are your thoughts on the final product?

Nice, good girl! I think you'll enjoy it. I have the 8s, wishing I'd have gone with the 10 but seemed like overkill for my use. Nice rig you have there BTW

Thank you!
I'm loving it, still got a handful of things to buy/add....PSC steering, JCR sliders, rock lights, etc.

Handles great on the road and getti.g 15mpg. Can't complain about that.

All this talk I been seeing about the rear storage modifications got me thinking.

Did a bunch of measuring on my jeep to try and get the most room under the factory lid and came up with this. What do ya'll think?

Divider on the right will hold a tree saver strap out of the way.
Recessed a light underneath to hook up to reverse circuit and also be on the sPod with all the other belly lights in the future.

Darn. I was referring to the T-Case somewhere above in this thread.

How much bigger is it? I guess to fit under the stock lid it can only be deeper?

The new one is 29.75" x 19" x 8.75". Not sure how big the stock one is, my wife's in the jeep right now or I would measure.

I second this! I see your light location as the ideal of pavement for my rear backup/rock camera. Also if you can add a couple oval cuts for some drain plugs would be awesome for those times you want to hose the jeep out or get caught in a flash storm. Otherwise you have a JK bath tub in the back, lol

Yeah, I have a camera on mine too and need the extra lighting.

I have an oval drain hole in the bottom now, it fits one of the OEM rubber plugs I measured off of.

You can see it in the CAD photos

Moved the backup camera from off the rear track bar to the spare tire delete plate on the tailgate.
