It says on their web site that it is for the 70 series. It's not clear what mods you did to fit the 80...
Yeah they are only for the 70 series. It just repositioning some holes on the window run lip (seen in the second photo). Pretty self explanatory when you see it. I went the extra mile and actually bolted through the door to them using some m4 threaded holes that were used for magnets on the armrests.

After 4 full days of working alone... another big to-do knocked off of the list! The 3in suspension kit from @TRAIL TAILOR is installed and the results are amazing! Duke site perfectly tall and level. The ride and responsiveness is improved. Everything is fresh and clean. i installed new OEM bushings in the front control arms, front and rear pan hard rods, and the front and rear sway bars and sway bar links! I wire brushed everything and repainted what I could. I’m super happy with the results... now just to get it aligned!

Nice! I'm in the midst of replacing my OME lift myself, funny we were probably 10 miles apart fighting the exact same bolts lol. Looking good!
Let me know if you want to buy this 20 ton press off me. Used it for just this project and don’t have a place to store it. Paid $250. Yours for $200

If you have the Wit's End pucks for the lower control arm bushings though I'd love to borrow or buy them off you...going to try the sleeving thing and replace the bushings at the same time. LMK.

Nice! I don’t have those wits end pucks actually. I borrowed them from @NorCalFJ100
