Fits my 2014 rubicon unlimited perfect , installation is about 6hrs , I did swap out some bolts and added some washers on the pins , and I siliconed around the inside seams , fits my 35" perfect and the LED is bright , it's a tighter fit and closes smoother then stock . the bottle opener is a great touch.
