It touches the stock skid plate barely at full stuff. Can get some pics if you would like. Just let me know.

That would help, for sure.

Here's the angle that would be the most informational, to me.



This is not moved to the center pin of the perch/spring plate. When it is, and the pinion angle is set, I think I still may have clearance issues.

Anyway, thanks. I appreciate it.

I'll get some pics tonight when I get off for ya. I can tell you right now part of why mine barely hits is I still have the stock skid and not a beefy one like yours. And like you said my diff armor is different, but I'll still grab some pictures.

Any one running ZOR Myrons snatch transfer case cradle? I'm worried about possibly cracking the cases with the 6.5 gears and the doubler in front but I have some slight vibration issues right now. My thought is just to stay with the stock rubber mounts because in all honesty I would rather have those tear then ruin my case. I know this has been talked about a lot before but I'm open to input. I have seen the solid mounts too but those sound scary

My dad and I both ordered the "Panty Liner" from ZOR, just got them in today. Beefy! Probably both gonna pull the trigger on the snatch cradle later.

Good thing I installed the Panty Liner, the stock hole was wallowed out pretty good, no vibrations now.



Also started on a stinger, sits just above the hood.



Will have better pics of the finished stinger and the panty liner tomorrow.

Thanks for the update!. Look forward to more

I couldn't begin to weld in dark. My old eyes need daylight thru auto darkening lens to even start to see where to weld

That bumper looks killer.

As for the Tcase mounts, I went w/ LROR preferring the weak link to be the mounts. Still, every single person I have spoke with, whom runs a ZOR cradle, is happy with it. That makes me question my choice on occasion.

Super small update. I finally painted the teeth on the front bumper. Looks mean now. I also mounted my fair lead license plate mount. Now I need to find the stock grill emblem cause every time I look at the grill it makes me mad that it's not there.

Stook, after a few issues with the EOS I ended up going with a Snatch, too. It's installed and we're working on setting up the rear, now. So, other than installation, I don't have any experience with 6.5s and the cradle... and I don't have a doubler. I'll keep my eye on this thread to see what you think down the road.

Haven't had much time to work on the Samurai lately, between work and buying a house (just went into escrow last week). The house has a two car garage so I should be able to get a lot more done soon.

Anyways, I got some work on my dad's tire carrier. Still a few details but its functional.





My Samurai had been missing the grill emblem ever since I got it and it always drove me crazy. I finally got a replacement and decided to paint the grill too.

The grill was nasty.



Paint came out good.





Working on some new rear shackles and bushings. Also trying to do a roof rack and tire carrier before July when we go to Rubicon. Shouldn't be too hard to get done if I wasn't moving and helping my dad get his rig ready. He needs a new transmission

What type paint did you use on grill? Any special prep steps?

Dad's tinny is looking good!

Finally made some new rear shackles, old ones were bent and square so they rubbed. New ones are 1/2" thick, hopefully they won't bend.
