    I find it amusing that some of the full-bodied ZJ guys aren't chiming in even after years of experience with an exo cage.

    Would like to know how some other people like theirs. I'm not a fan of body damage at all. So if it keeps us safe and will help protect the body I'm in.

    You don't like body damage?

    Hahaha nope. But I fixed it.



    That's so I could fit 38s with 4 inches of lift. Sitting on stock springs just moved the coil mounts to bottom of frame. Since I stretched it 10 inches some panels got a sawsall touch.

    That wasn't gonna work.



    Even fixed the door



    All boxed in. Still need to seam seal



    Not a good day on the trail. That is body damage.

    I'm just giving you a hard time. The fit and finish of your work looks pretty high quality. But from experience, the guys I've seen trying to maintain the full body status, end up doing more damage trying to protect that sweet body.

    I figured. Haha I am curious how they hold up after being rubbed down a tree a few times or flopped on its side. If I will be able to still open doors after wheeling for a year or two. I try to pick good lines but won't turn down a challenge. At least in my old rig.

    Got alot done since last update. Body work has been done to my ability. D/A the whole thing down to metal in spots and got all the bad spots out. Winshield is out and back glass out.







    Painted the front springs and retainer plates. And lowered the lower coil mounts 2 inches. They were temperairly tacked in to high.





    Jams done











    Ready for the paint booth and weather permitting it will go tomorrow

    In sealer.







    1st coat of green.





    2nd coat.







    Done and sunning it's self outside.









    At home in the garage.



    Gonna pull it out tomorrow and start putting the trim back on. Hope to have it together in 2 weeks and take it out.

    Been a while since an update. It is wheel able now.

    The cage on





    Only thing putting the cage back on. One of my helpers had a wedding ring on and the cage pinned it between the cage and door.



    Repainted the beadlocks rings and re sealed the beads. Also added 14 Oz of bbs in the tires to balance them.





    Winch roller fairlead plate.



    My helpers washing it.









    A little flex shot



    Trying to find the coolant leak



    Found it. Day ending radiator Crack made it off the trails and on the trailer.



    Made it home.

    Very nice! At least it is an easy fix, and pretty cheap at that. What size tires are those? They look tiny with how big and high it is.
    93zj build. 4.0 aw4, 231, 60s, and 37s. Some cutting and some welding.

    They are 38x13x16 tsl. I cut the fenders to hopefully handle 40s at full bump

    It is on stock springs and home built mounts on front and Barnes 4wd brackets in rear

    Very nice truck, please don’t take this the wrong way.
    It’s a shame the truck looks so clean without the Exo. It almost looks out of place with it installed.

    No offense taken. Exos aren't for everyone. I liked it without it too but I know me and I would have not liked the big dents at all. Haha. It turned out pretty close to how I thought it would. Close to the body and all doors open. I couldn't ask for more. All the family can ride in it and the a/c works and is cold!!!

    I haven't been on here for awhile, the jeep is looking awesome! what size dom tubing did you use for cage? I'm also cutting the rear panel next to the brake light kinda like you do you see a lot of flex when wheeling? that green is cool.
