    Well, it's mobile and complete. Buttoned up all the welding and such in my buddy's shop today. Seam sealed the crap out of all the joints, and threw some paint on things to seal it up. Rear bumper is back on and trimmed up on the right side. The bigger wheel wells make the 32s look quite small! The 5 speed feels good, though I think the clutch may need a bleed, or one of the cylinders is failing. Pedal engagement is very close to the floor and reverse grinds at times.

    Sadly the brakes are terrible. I tried a fluid flush, but couldn't get the RR bleeder screw loose. So a wheel cylinder is definitely in the cards, but I feel a master cylinder may be, as well. I think a seal stuck while it was sitting and tore. No leaks, as I used a pressure bleeder, so that's good.

    On my 5 speed ZJ I wad to put a slight bend in the clutch pedal to allow it to get full travel without the pedal bottoming out on the floor. After I did this the clutch engagement point moved up to a reasonable level. A previous owner did the conversion so I don't know where they sourced the clutch pedal from.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll check mine to see if it's hitting the floor, or not. The grinding occurs after a few shifts, notnall the time. That's why I'm a little worried about the hydraulics, which supposedly were replaced recently

    Do you have any pics of your pedal setup? Mine is, indeed, hitting the floor. But looking at things it almost looks like the XJ pedals are too long. Now, that wouldn't totally fix the issue, as the bend in the pedal has left an indent in the carpet, but it may help. If I do the clutch I'll want to adjust the brake pedal, too. Otherwise they'll be really goofy to each other. I may still try a simple bleeding of the hydraulics first.

    Oh, and a rough measurement in my uneven driveway shows close to 3" of gained clearance at the rocker panel vs the factory pinch weld. I'll have to get it on an even surface to get an accurate measurement.
