FIT and TOLERANCES: M.O.R.E.™ parts are the results of countless hours of research, testing, fitting and refining. Jeep® frames have a wide tolerance on bolt hole centers from frame to frame. This is why M.O.R.E.™ has installed “slots” in which to mount them. In addition to the factory tolerances, most people install other then factory equipment such as suspension lift kits, skid plates, different transfer cases etc. M.O.R.E.™ has done the best job we can to insure that our parts fit with all of the possibilities. However, you may find it necessary to grind, elongate, bend, or force these parts to fit on your rig. Please use common sense when installing these parts and let us know how we can improve them.
