As a ex EB owner that did the Rubicon back in 2003 and 2004 with it easily this is just sad. Yes mine was modded but Ford could have put at least 44's under this SUV, sorry will not call it a Bronco.
I've done the Con in 2 different JKU's many times and few times in a LJ. Ford better step up...

V8 hell yes, I have a LS now but a heavy Hemi if that's the only option yes. But I would love a all Aluminum version of one.
Would rather have a tried and...
Well darn...if I'm readying the 2021 order sheet correctly I can't get the std V6 with the 8sp that blows!

I've got a 5.3 LS with a cam Gen 4 LC9 motor without the DOD.
Lot of work yes but well worth the trouble.
New kits that John @ Overland Performance has available are going to make for a much similar install and his support is the best!
John and Motec now have a Calif legal 5.3 swap kit.
Thanks for the reply.
My rear door pin measures 36.5" to the bottom. Some differences in the body heights.
Would you mind measuring to the bottom of the outside of the front door.

Are the JL's that different than the JK's....reason I ask is my JK is the same overall height as yours 81"
