To keep shipping costs down, the front windshield spreader/A-pillar downtubes are shipped in two pieces with a sleeve. This saves overall size of boxes and keeps tubes from getting damaged. It also helps with bent Jeeps like ours. The foot of the tube at the floor, while made for a TJ, was cut at the correct angle for our YJ floor. We drilled some 1⁄2-inch-diameter holes to rosette weld the sleeve into the tube. We also ground a chamfer into the end of the tube to make a V-notch when they are butted together for a stronger connection than tube alone.
