YES a RIGd Supply Ultraswing Multi-fit will fit a ZR2 Bison
It will require the removal of the passenger side recovery point but that is ALL! True bolt-on installation.
I did work with RIGd to make a 3d printed insert to fill the void where the recovery point was removed but that's because I don't like cutting up good parts and I like nice finished looks

We are working on the official conversation. I did the design work as something one off and RIGd is looking into what they can do. Stay tuned or drop them a line, they are responsive and good people to talk to.

We make that pipe for the JK platform Jeeps. IF there is enough demand we build it.

Holy cow this is such such an awesome build! I can't wait to see phase 2!

Going through the thread, this caught my eye. Depending on price, I would be very interested in a solution to the exhaust crossover for the V6 that allows us to use the Diesel skid plate. I hit my skid V6 transmission skid on just about everything!

I answered that on the next post but its easy, the water tank is on a receiver hitch. it just pulls out. Additionally, when i build out the bed camp /sleep area I will be using a permanent mount water tank with remote fill valve and filler neck.

Sorry I think I had my quotes all messed up, I went back and fixed it. I'm talking about a way to tuck the exhaust crossover pipe on the V6 that would allow us to use the flat diesel skid plate. The gas version, like you installed on post #101 of this thread, hang down so low. I hit mine on just about everything!

sorry i was referring to the bed storage and orginizing box
I don't mind sharing my final results once i get the video done. I am still revising the design...probably not going with the Topper EZ lift. After speaking to a few owners and the novelty wore off there are a few problems with the design that are not good for those that drive hard or for extended periods off road. Great on the street but on washboard roads and articulating over obstacles there are lots of alignment problems.

I did it a bit easier and drilled two holes at the back of the pocket and attached a ram ball mount:







I'm able to press every button behind it.
I like the simplicity and the adjustability of the ball mount angle but I had some pretty specific aesthetic goals and one of the big ones was to block the Chapstick / lip balm holder hole completely. It gets so dusty and dirty after heavy use and a cubby hole that collects dirt and dust would drive me crazy... I am very OCD if you couldn't tell.

I am also not a huge fan of the universal mounting systems with the ball and arms... it's growing on me but I really still don't like busy looking center consoles and seeing wires even from my phone charger bugs me.

My friend Ali's jeep "Kate The Jeep" makes me claustrophobic lol

I'm like you, as you are aware, which is why my wires currently have clips to keep them clean and out of the way. I got in on the pre-order for the Expedition Essentials powered dash mount. They're supposed to ship mid-May and I hope that solves all my problems. The best part is that it's powered so you just have to run short cables and they're out of the way of everything.

I damaged the rear fender flares crawling last trip out and it gave me the motivation to finish the REAR portion of the American Expedition Vehicles - AEV 33" Tire Trim Kit.

Passenger Side Rear
409909


Driver Side Rear
409910


I have documented the whole process as I completed it along with some "extra credit" processes I went through to get the most out of the finished install.

Here is what you cut off
