Got the pics resized, should be able to have them click free now....

The pipe insulate works great, its already pre-sliced, and the adheasve is super strong, holds up through carwashes and storms. They make a 6' foam section (which I had on here first) and is under 2 bucks, but they also offer this rubber stuff, which looks better and will hold up better. Its about 6 bucks a 6 foot section.

Best of all, if it does tear off while wheeling, your only out 6 bucks.

Mine is just a beach buggy though, (why I went with a low COG, wide tire) only because there is no where to trail ride :-( around here. But plenty of beaches to drive!

Thanks!

I will get more pictures up soon, I was itching to drive it after I got the tires on.

As far as rubbing, it rubs no where, full steering lock either way, and plenty of room in the rear wheels.

The rims are 15x8 with a 4" backspacing. (without that backspacing, I am sure it would rub) I have done fender trimming front and rear as well.

But like I said, this is a beach Jeep and daily driver (no need for tons of flex).
