Lookin' good, I love the converted front clip! I really like what it's done to my Jeep
You, my friend, are my inspiration, Seeing your Jeep made me get off my butt, travel almost 2000 miles round trip, just to bring my CJ grille and hood from my parents house in VA down here to FL!! I'll be using your dash thread, but, I'm going to use the YJ heater/vent controls, just so no one can say I copied you, I think it'll be cool, different!! Thanks for the comments, and in the next few weeks, I'll get the CJ fenders on, and show you the results,
Thanks, guys! I'm STILL waiting on the CJ fenders, , hopefully, they'll be here tomorrow. They should have been here on Sat, Oh, well, guess I'll try the Greyhound station tomorrow! Let me say that shipping big things with Greyhound is the BEST and CHEAPEST way to go, I highly recommend them, I'll let you guys know when I get them and start, hopefully next weekend. Have one question for the people that have done this, how much of a PITA is it to get the bolts that hold the fenders on out? I've been soaking them with PB for about a week, should that be enough, or, should I be looking for a fight as to getting to the captive nuts? Thanks!
If you dont mind me asking what did they charge you?
From PA to South FL, it cost me $102 to ship 2 fenders and a set of CJ gauges, not the whole dash, just the gauges. The package has to be under 100 lbs, in my case, it was 55 lbs. I'm sure there is a size limit, but, other then the weight limit, I don't know. I got an AX15 shipped for the same price from PA to South FL. I had an AX5 shipped to me from VA for $105. Both trannies were right at the $100 limit. I also had an antique radio with glass tubes and dial shipped down here from Mich, for $110. No breakage what so ever, I'm a believer in these guys!
not to jack the op....
i too have been thinking about this for some time ...finally got a few pics tonight...will get better pics when the weather breaks.....not quite done yet, need some marker lights and will eventually get cj fenders and paint the front clip...
hey Jerry....how often do you use the rod holder? just a thought...fab a removeable 2" receiver up front (pins/clips), mount the rod holder on a piece of 2" square tubing and slide it in when you are goin' fishin'...best of both worlds...
My last parts finally came, WOOHOO!!
Driver's side CJ fender
Passenger side CJ fender
And the CJ grille supports
Thanks to CJinPA for these final pieces to this puzzle
I was quite surprised that the fenders came with the side marker lights as well as the flares, pieces I was going to try to get soon, but, now, I have them!!
Maybe this coming weekend, I'll put them on. We'll see!!
LOL, I get that all the time!! It's an aluminum fishing rod rack with a fold down for a cooler. I'm thinking of taking it off tomorrow to see how it looks. The sad thing is, this is the one thing that sets this Jeep out from the rest, but, on the other hand, it kinda hides the CJ grille, So, I'm just going to see what it looks like, I might have to ditch it anyway when I get a winch. I just can't seem to come up with a good solution to still have it, and have a winch. Oh, well.
Use the winch to help haul in the "big ones"
