Just an update for everyone, the shop fell behind on production a little. Between steel allocations and short handed, they're back logged. I have everything else at the house (rivnuts, bus bars, wire, etc) ready to go. So once I get the brackets I'm hoping I should be able to knock them out within a week or two. Thanks for being patient.

I, for one, appreciate you for designing and offer it to us. Thank you for sharing your idea and making it happen!

Alright, here's an update for everyone.

I met up with @Terminex today because we both live in Omaha. He just picked up a new 4XE so I wanted to do a test fit with both brackets. The ground bus bar bracket will work. The 4XE has the same holes in the passenger fender.

However the 'rock light' bracket on the driver side, does not look like it will fit. (I didn't have the brackets with me because the fabrication shop currently has them so they can draw them up, I did have the CAD drawings though) I have a 2019 3.6 (non-etorque) with a standard brake booster. Apparently the 4XE doesn't have a standard brake booster and appears to have a vacuum pump instead. The entire brake fluid reservoir, abs system, and vacuum pump all sit closer to the firewall which appears to get in the way of the bracket.

Here is my Jeep. (Ignore the loose wires because I don't have the bracket installed)

Here is the 4XE. You can see the 2 differences in the brake system.

I'll be able to confirm with 100% certainty once I get my brackets back from the shop this week.

Is there anyone with a different engine configuration (3.6 E-Torque, 2.0 non-etorque, 2.0 etorque, 3.0 diesel) that might have a different braking system that either of the 2 pictured above?

Do you want one or both if the brackets?

The shop sent me the cad drawings to review and I made one final minor change and gave the go ahead to cut them out. Hopefully I'll have the brackets within a week. I'll keep everyone posted.

Good news everyone! Brackets were cut out last week when I was on vacation so I picked them up yesterday. I'm working on bending them all into shape this week so hopefully I can get them all complete soon hopefully.

I think I underestimated the amount of time it was going to take me to put these all together.

Got all the brackets bent, now cleaning them up with my die grinder because there are grinder marks from the shop where they cleaned up the edges. My little pancake compressor is really struggling to keep up though so I can only do 1 or 2 at a time to give it time to cool off between runs.

I painted and installed the ground bus bar & bracket. Thanks to @spurly for the effort. I used a Honda touch up paint that is a closer match to Firecracker Red than the lighting in the photo suggests.

The label is my own addition. ;)

The bracket doesn't make contact with the pneumatic strut when the hood is closed. There's also fair clearance between the bracket and the factory grounding studs that are now underneath the bracket.
So Heimker has the very first bracket. He's one of the few people that just ordered the ground bus bar bracket. I have a few more people to contact for payment and address who ordered just the ground bus bracket. For those of you waiting on both brackets, I just need to make it over to my buddies shop to use his welder then I'll be ready to ship. Working on rebuilding my deck this weekend so hopefully this next week I can get them welded up. Thanks for your patience.

Wondering if you could potentially make a mount like this for a Warn power interrupt solenoid?
