Great looking LJ, did you use the seat mounting bracket locations to bolt in the tool box or just mount to the tub?
I set it on hockey pucks to raise it up high enough to clear the floor mounted seat tracks, used a 7/16 - 20 bolt into where the seat belts go and two J hooks into the footman loops in the floor. I also cut some fuel line I had laying around and split it down the side and put over the edge of the seat tracks in case they did hit the bottom of the tool box, so it wouldn't rattle. It works out really well. I've since put a sleeve over the threaded part of the bolt under the tool box so someone couldn't turn the bolt out with pliers. It hold quite a bit.

After getting a good deal on some new MOPAR rock rails from @rubicon 3 , I pulled the diamond plate rubicon rocker guards off and put these on. My Jeep isn't a Rubicon so it didn't come with the nutserts installed. I bought some and installed them when I bought the diamond plate rockers from someone. These bolted up to the same nutersts. And for reference, those are the wider Rubicon fender flares.

Thanks @rubicon 3 . Good guy to deal with.

I’m happy with them. When I bought the lift, I got the body lift and MML also that comes with the Ultimate kit from DPG Off road in case I decide to go to 33’s. But if I do that I think I’ll have a buddy of mine regear it to 4:88. The 31’s do fine with my 42RLE Auto Trans.
