True you will not need the clocking ring if mounted in the stock position BUT many of the kits include an extended input shaft to compensate for the ring thickness. If you remove the ring the input shaft may be too long to properly mate with your transmission....

Good to know. I will worry about that now.

Sorry - Wait, I have an answer, I'll take the 4 to 1 T-Case off your hands reducing the stress in your life, because that is what friends do.... Laughing

Then moved on to try to figure out why the 3a wonít start. Frustrating that it ran fine at the show and shine but now just wonít start. Cranks but nothing.

Gonna try the coil, condenser, points etc tomorrow.

Got the ARB compressor mounted up. Still need wire it up. Just praying the LCAs I ordered will work with my janky setup. My JKS adjustables wonít fit. Hereís what Iím dealing with:

Long term, Iím going to get stock mounts welded on there and Iím good to go. Iím going to Chaos on Saturday so Iím trying to find LCAs that have a smaller head to fit these janky mounts. They come in on Wednesday so I wonít have a ton of time to get it all put back together. 🤞🤞

I agree with both of you, but I don't have the skill/tools and I'm now on a time crunch.  Luckily, I have a back-up plan for Saturday.  I take my 17 Cherokee Trailhawk and run the green trails and still have fun.

So  the inside review mirror is .... well useless in a JK with a spare tire mounted. After  seeing a Kenworth  concept truck the other day with it electronic  screen mirrors it got me thinking.

After a quick search  I found a video camera drive mirror  that can be mounted  much in the same way a back up camera  is mounted.  the "head unit" is a review looking mirror with the capability to project the cameras image " on screen"

 the other issue  I have with the windshield mounted review is viability forward. I am tall and the mirror  location block a large  percentage of the view  right of center. I have had several near misses since buying the jeep. I chose a lower mounting location for the electronic screen right on top of the dash.  The plus is this is a Dash Cam  in both forward and reverse.  The whole system was  about $100.00 and took a few hours to install and set up.  The only  thing lost is the ability to look inside the car  with the current  mounting location.

Pictures to follow

Cheers
