thanks wrangler!, awesome idea. will do.
(those bushwackr flares use bolts though...are you sure they use glue also?)

oh and as for those zip ties, that's a vaccuum hose that comes out of the back of the d30 pumpkin and my driveshaft was rubbing it so i am just keeping it out of the way. but speakin of brakelines, i do need to push mine over some as i noticed my front tires are slightly rubbing them. zip ties are also holding up my track bar, i wasn't able to get the top bolt out last year so i just had it suspended out of the way, i'll take the sawzall to it eventually.

mind you, cutting that crap bottom part of the flare off is a bit mor epain in the *** then it looks, there are 2 rediculous metal brackets that i grinded off, which was a bit of a pain, and i sliced into my tub a bit, but some cleaning, rust removing, and painting made it look nice again, here's the metal bracket things i mean.



I know how much of a PITA it is to get the extensions off, since I had to do the exact same thing to get my homebrew rockers installed. I would go with TJ flares, but I like the way the side marker lights are on the stock YJ flares, and I don't need the extra tire clearance. So I want to do something like the TJ flares, but not quite (if that makes sense).

This is what I have to work with now. The rockers are cut on an angle following the contour of the OEM flare.

I built this front bumper during the winter, of course it started snowing about the time I busted out the camera.

I made this for my YJ. I have these pics in another post but it seems to fit here too. It's made from composite decking. I'm pretty happy with the result. As you can see, it was dark and raining when we finished but it was well worth it.

Pre-Assembly




Finished Product








I may put a back on it and bracket the two boards together for some added stability but that can wait. For now, it's in tight.

This is a cool thread. Fab and new ideas is probably my favorite thing about this yj forum. I especially like the different armor. E-rock I will be stealing your boat side rocker Idea. Not for my YJ but something in that direction on my scout 800. I will share as well to add to this library of ideas. I built most everything on my jeep. Flat fenders are made from solid rod. Body armor is all .25in plate except the rear corners which I did not make. They are 3/16 and were allready on the jeep I just carved them up. The rockers have squares punched in the step area. bumpers and shackle hangers are all at least 1/4 if not thicker. I don't much care about weight only strength. Right now I am working on the swing out tire carrier. I will probably make some tube flares at some point. My jeep was really hacked when I bought it for $1750 the po let the sawsall cut on auto pilot. I did the best I could with what I had. Thanks for the ideas.

I made a blow-by oil scrubber for my YJ!



six layers of blue hair filter material sandwiched between some metal mesh.



The ends of the catch.



The finished product.



No more oil in the breather.

Sure, it's not a Dana 60, but it saves me a quart of oil every 1,000 miles as well as countless fouled plugs.

thanks,

I stole your Ammo can idea and put my 6x9's in it , thanks buddy.
*note to anyone trying this, a sawzall is not the proper tool.

Brilliant!
I like this idea. But why not just use a breather element that you can pick up for $5? (just curious)
