So how much are you going to cut off?

Just get the sawzall going. Just remember to tube the heck out of it afterwards.

Rev Dan, that is sick man. Does it still have the back seat in it like a wrangler? What about a top for it? DO you have a custom soft top? IS it possible to make it with a wrangler style cage? Did you consider that style or is what you have what you wanted? Just curious and thinking about that. About how long did it take you to do that? What all did it require? Did you have to fab alot of parts? Thanks for any info on your Jeep.

Thanks. First.....it's DEN not Dan....now...

No back seat, I did not need one.

I had a custom (read $$$) top made.

You could use a Wrangler style cage....I like this look better, this is exactlly as I envisioned it.

It took about a month to get to where it is...you could work faster...or slower. It required tubing, welding, a "cage man", some steel plate, and BALLS (thanks Beezil). Everything related to the chop had to be fabbed....I used a race shop for the cage bending, everything else I did (thats why no close-ups) it looks pretty good from 20 feet away.
