Safety devices interior roll cage mounted. A little fiddly to install but it is in. FYI Safety devices instructions are horrible. It was easier for me to organize bolts and count the number/size of holes to figure out where they go. It was so bad that they have the upper horizontal pieces lightly stamped with which side they go on and wether it was top or bottom. To make a long story short, after spending several hours trying all different types of combinations, I called them to find out that they sometimes stamp them incorrectly.

Oh man. Looks good! I went through similar situation with my SD roll cage. 30 or so emails later... At least they were responsive and helpful.

Fitted door handles, strikes, etc. only issue I had was the front left door seal pushing the door out. I needed to order a new door handle that is made for a key, so we will see if it compresses. If not, I might be stuck with buying a $80 lr door seal. Ugh

Also dry fit the rear side windows. The window latches are hitting against the roll cage. We are going to try and take apart the frames and switch the front piece of glass, so that the handle drops to the bottom, which should allow them to clear the roll cage.

Starting soon, then off to muffler shop.

Indeed it looks good. I had a SD cage on a 90 years back, it seemed to go together ok, but I have a P&P one on my current 110 and used their template to drill the holes, which all were in the wrong place :-(

Looks great, Steve.

How did you finally resolve your radiator/fan clearance?

We ended up moving the radiator forward about 4-5". I could do this because the heritage grill bump out is a bit longer than the normal a/c grill. By doing this, I got rid of the fans that I got with Nick's setup and put 2 - 14" fans that pull 2750 cfm. We now have a shroud on it. We had to modify the slam panel, offset the pin on the hood, and fabricate some brackets for everything, but all in all, I think it looks really good. If someone wanted to undue this for some reason, it would require a new slam panel, grinding off some radiator tabs that we welded in, and that is it. I feel like this is the best setup we could think of. If it doesn't work to keep the condenser cool, then I have nothing else to offer b/c I have no room at the front to toss in another fan. I'll take some pics and post them without the radiator in so that you can see what was done...

Here are some pics of how the radiator got mounted. I wish I had a better angle of the fans in the shroud b/c they look really good.... We put 2- 14" high volume perma cool fans. Notice the condenser (which is pretty much why we did this) and how the transmission cooler is mounted right under it. After doing some research, I determined that the trans cooler in Nick's BOM was undersized, especially in Central Texas towing a boat. I ended up getting a much larger one, which I believe had about double the cooling capacity. Everything is snug, but I think it fits perfect. I'll paint the rest of the plastic pieces when I know I won't take them off and on a hundred more times. Still haven't started it yet b/c I was waiting on a couple of trans cooler line fittings... fingers crossed.

I've said this before. LR genuine door seals are night and day better than aftermarket. Totally different.

I think you are right about that. I finally got the new handle on the driver door, so I'm able to latch and shut it. Its tight, but I want to let it stay closed for a few weeks and see what happens. I might be investing in a LR genuine seal in the future...
