Went to Pic-N-Pull and found/bought a 5.9 grill and hood vents w/ drip pans.
Only took 2 years to find them here.

Installed my disconnect pegs on the front skid so I dont have to mess around with zip ties anymore, topped up the 710 fluid and check everything else. Tomorrow the rebuilt upper rear control arms go in and the front lower control arm brackets get cut off. I'm thinking about an hour each side considering how thick the metal is there.

Almost done!!

Really? I used a sawzall for most of it and it cut right thru and didnt even phase the blade. Used the cut off wheel for the hard to reach spots

Seeing that fender reminded me..

When you guys trim the stock fenders, do you just cut them and leave a sharp edge? I want to trim mine like 2-3", I don't want to buy flares, and I'd like it to look the best it can, I don't want a huge razor blade there above the tires. Do you guys roll the metal back? If so, does the paint chip off around there?

Im going to roll mine and then put a rubber trim piece on it to cover the chipped paint.

Should I be covering up my tires when Im cutting? I assume my brake lines will be fine, they are the braided steel and Kevlar ones.

Hard to see but use the ruber trim for the door edges (usually comes in crome) found it at advanced in black for 10$ put it around the sharp edges then undercoated wheel well
