Is this a "spot the deliberate mistake" competition?

You have the caliper carriers to the front of the hubs, they should be at the back! WHY this is escapes me, but that is original design and TJs are made to work that way round too. Sterling work otherwise! Love to see shiny bits going back, maybe because I am too lazy to make things shiny when I know full well they won't stay that way!

I think what's happened there is that uploading them has somehow mirrored the image. They are Infact on correctly.


I'm currently in the garage undoing bolts ready for a speedy swap tomorrow morning :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

Front splitter is now on 8) waiting for the some filler to dry then we will drill holes to match the arch bolts around the top edge.

Image

We had to profile re shape the edges of the splitter as it didn't fit the wide arches.

Image

Image

Also took a comparison picture of the orrgional steel wheel and what will be fitted :lol:
