Love the front fenders. I am thinking about putting those on my tj and throwing 35s on it.

They were a pretty simple install. The 35s might require you to re-gear for the mountains. I'm in Denver and I can tell you that my jeep doesn't love I70 headed toward Breck.

yeah i plan on making mine a trail rig in the future. the mountains are the death of my 33s right now and 4.10s i was thinking 4.88s. I think the 35s will fit with the 4 inch long arm and those fenders. hopefully

I'm running 3" of lift and a 1" body lift. I could stuff the 35s before the fender modification. Do you have a BL? If you are going to dedicate it as a trail rig you should consider a tummy tuck from Savvy or the aluminum one from UCF.

i dont have a body lift i kindof wanted to stay away from one but i want to put the genright gas skid on and that requires a 1" body so i think i may have to put one on for that and a tummy tuck...

I wasn't a huge fan of them either, but for TT and gas skid purposes they provide a benefit. I've seen many of Genright's products on other jeeps, they are really high quality...but take a look at Savvy for comparison purposes.

I'm going with Savvy corners and Smittybuilt flares on the rear. I don't like the looks of the MC rears. I agree with getting a locker first. The locker makes you go...the armor is secondary in my opinion.

WOW, I LOVE THE LOOKS OF UR TJ i'm not a big fan of yellow but that yellow black theme you got goin on it sexy... i would go with armor first IMO b/c i didn't spend the dough on armor first and damaged the tub on the drivers side on a rock, good news is a little rattle can and a little work witha hammer and a crescent wrench and it was straight enough to install the rocker guards to cover up the eyesore... but keep up the excellent work man i love it so far...

And four pictures of the LJ...less the floaties. I sure do enjoy driving it more than my WJ that I traded for it...but I really need to lower it to about 2" of lift given those 32s.
