Thank you,
Unfortunately, I don't how much help I can be with this...I didn't have to line up the ACC sensor with the lower bumper because I had the RRO Prerunner. If I remember correctly, I just used the bracket that the ACC sensor was attached to the original bumper with, to attach it to the new RRO bumper with the holes that were located under where your winch sits (I hope that makes sense, I don't have any photos). I didn't have to deal with adjusting the height or anything because I just cut a notch in the RRO Prerunner for the ACC sensor to fit and made a cover for it for when I go off-roading.

Re: Jeff's "Black Widow" Build

Saw this beast in person and it has some serious off road potential. I'm not an off roader, but I can't help but to imagine just what this could climb up on the trails. Great build Jeff!

Re: Jeff's "Black Widow" Build

Hello Jeff! First off, thank you so much for documenting and sharing your build! I know how much work that process can be! This weekend I purchased my very 1st JGC and I will be going through your build to learn from your experiences. If I was in California, I would definitely treat you to lunch for all of the helpful information!
Now I have to figure out what my 1st mod will be! I am thinking the skid plates and MOPAR rocker rails...

Thanks again Jeff and keep up the good work!

Re: Jeff's "Black Widow" Build

Thanks guys! Sorry it's been so long since I posted, I had quite a bit going on recently with moving back up to OC, going on vacation and a friend in the hospital. Yesterdays was the first chance I have had to do anything to the Jeep and it was small. I finally got around to removing the plastidip I had around the windows and on the remaining trim that I couldn't find black replacement pieces for. Hopefully I can find the time in the next couple weeks to take it down to a shop and get all the stuff I just removed the plastidip from, vinyl wrapped. I still have a bunch of little stuff to do in the next few weeks that I just haven't gotten around to. The list is as follows:

-Vinyl wrap trim and chrome around windows and on roof rails.
-Install custom badges I received a couple months ago
-Remove & reinstall RRO Prerunner skid plate in order to install final skid plate (Chief Sump Protection Plate)
-Remove RRO Supersliders
-Order and install MOPAR rock rails

Also on the list but a little further down the road is to have a custom interior piece installed on top of the dash to hold my CB which I would like to relocate from the glove box. This is going to take a lot of planning and design because I want it to look factory. It's going to rise gradually out of the dash. I plan on the leather on top of the dash being removed and matched then placed over the top of the "cabinet" (or whatever you want to call it) so that it flows and looks seamless. Sorry it's a little hard to explain but I can picture it perfectly in my mind.

Thanks Student4Life! Congrats on your new purchase, I am sure you will love it. Skids plates and rock rails are the perfect choice to do first if you plan on taking it off roading. I think those were the first things I did too. Good Luck!

Re: Jeff's "Black Widow" Build

Jeff, the hardest thing about your CB cubby is just picking the right stereo store. But, there has to be high end places in SoCal that can do it up no problem!
Hey, since you got your Chief products sump plate that doesn't mean you have a left over factory piece does it?

Yeah, I should have it left over. I can't remember but I think when I looked at it last one of the bolt holes might have been ripped though...When I get it the new plate installed, I will take a look and let you know...Am I right in assuming you are looking for one?
