Re: CJ7 Fibertub install need your EXPERTISE!!!
The hyd brake system sounds like it is a good idea! If you don't go this route, and need to extend your brake pushrod, you can either cut/weld it yourself or get the adjustable rod from Tri County Gear (thats what I did).
I agree, they need to update their video. It looks like it was made in about 1975. I'm not sure what you are talking about with "Moving body mounts". If you purchased the "Fiberglass body instalation kit" it has a pair of plates that bolt to the #2-#3 frame mounts, and you drill hols in these plates to actualy mount the tub to.
For the seatbelts, I just mounted the retractor part to the bottom plate on my sport bar with a large (5" dia. X 3/16" thick)
washer to back it up under the tub. The latch end was bolted through the rear/inboard seat bolt with the same backing washer. A full cage is on the list and the belts/seats will be mounted to that to make it a stronger setup.
I used my original wiring harness and just ran dedicated grounds to all of the "systems" (ie: grille, dash, motor, frame, taillights, etc.).
If you are mechanicly inclined, you will do well. Just take your time and as Bob said, measure EVERYTHING a few times before cutting.
