Josh's clutch is actually thicker and even stronger with the vertical orientation. Even his massive calves can't break that.

I doubt A/C is a factor. If you can't insert the trim top first behind the door catch, you'll need to trim there.

Then bend the bottom tabs down, insert it top first, then bend the bottom tabs up to hold the bottom. If it makes you feel better I still have not gotten around to installing mine

I'll give that a try tonight probably and post up the results. I love how the only instructions were "remove pedal rubber" ... like no $hit.

I gave you real instructions. Remove the trim at top to make it easier

Guys I had not seen this post in a while and just getting up to speed, Joshua as Jeff mentioned, the trim piece at the top holds the panel in place and once this is correctly in place will clear the door check strap slider.

I finally installed it. I did have to cut the top left side to get it to clear the door check, and rounded the edge off a little with a hammer so that it wouldn't be sharp (I don have a lot of fancy grinders and stuff). Looks better now, but what a pain in the ass to install!

Did you take top trim out to install? I never had an issue. The door check issue I can understand

I just loosened the screws/trim. I actually installed those while I was doing some work on the dash so it all tied together nicely. I also made myself a set of side panels at the same time so the floorboard would be totally wrapped

No disrespect intended...perhaps I am the first with a '95, A/C, and in particular those door checks who has installed one of these on the driver's side. Jeff, if you look at your door check:

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...0&d=1307064519

vs. mine:

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...0&d=1307147168

you'll notice that I have an entire channel that it slides along, and this appears to be the main reason why this was so much trouble to install. 1994s could not "lock" open, but these '95s can, because of the channel and s bracket that locks it in place with the door open. I did have to remove the trim panel, and it was a little closer to fitting, but still would not work without trimming the footwell trim; definitely more than the "Instructions: remove pedal rubber" that came with it. It does look nice, but would look way nicer if I didn't have to resort to hacking the shit out of it, attempting to fit it 10 times, and scratching it in the process. One last critique would be that the accelerator section of the footwells could be beefed up a little or a little thicker on that edge, as that appears to be the Achilles heal with regard to its strength...it bent back almost any time I handled it.

Has anyone else with a '95 or '97 installed one of these? Was it without issue?

I just installed a set on my '94 with the SW style doors on it. I can concur with Horsey's assessment, they do require some minor trimming in order to fit with the SW door check mechanisms. Not hard with a hacksaw at all, and otherwise were a fantastic fit.

Thanks Hans. Good to know I wasn't the only one who needed to trim off the top a bit.

Hans,

How much was needed to trim off the top left side, I can make sure moving forward this can be incorporated to all panels.

Horsey, thanks for bringing this up to start with....

I have a 95 and have both the driver and passenger side, both pieces went in but not without some manipulation and slight bending to get behind the door trim. Once in they stay there though.

When I get a chance, I'll snap a photo and take some measurements. Should be able to do that in the next day or so.

Tom,

Are these still available? I just ripped out the cardboard in my drivers side this morning with my boot.
