When I got home today, I had two boxes waiting for me.

I open them up and got to work. I started at 4pm and finished at 8:30pm. Not bad, I will say that the driver side is easier. Tomorrow I will continue on the passenger side. At least to tear it apart, then on the weekend I will install the fender and maybe the rear flares if I get them delivered.

I did have to cut the corner of my smittybilt rock slider as the fender flare bolt doesnt allow it to sit flush. Now I have to drill the slider and countersink it to install the bolt that I removed.

It is coming along nicely! Can't wait to see the rest of it finished. The rears are way easier than the fronts. Only pain in the butt part was ripping out the wheel well liners. Don't put them back in...

Any particular reason not to install them again?

You'll rip them to pieces just pullin them out. They're old and brittle. Not worth reinstalling.

So installing the passenger fender only took me about an 1.5 hours from start to finish. I took it for a drive and heard some noise that sounded like crickets, stop at a parking lot and I find out I forgot to tighten the grill bolts that hold the fender.

And a little bit of curb crawling. I will take some pictures in the day light as I havent seen this things in actual daylight. They need some touch up paint, but I can honestly say that my jeep is starting to look like awesome.

No flare on the front and 4" on the rear. I can't afford the front flare for now. But I really love how it looks with no flare. I will see how it looks like with no flare on the front and 4" flare on the rear as soon as I get my rears delivered. Im in love and this time its not with a woman.

Did not paint the inner wheel well, it blends with my wheels that have a machined finish. Plus, rocks and dirt would damage the paint fast. Aluminum and paint doesn't bond well from my experience.
