I'll post a better picture tomorrow, but its already finished in that picture. I made it fit the inside of the tub, not the outside.

When you order corners from Moab Fab, they will cut out any tail light configuration you want. I of course wanted flush mount lights, and he had pictures up on his website that included 2" reverse light cutouts. I really liked how that looked, and I want reverse lights that are actually useful, so I ordered the corners with the reverse light cutouts. They holes are made to be used with a pair of lights made by Warrior Products, but it was like $50 for the kit. Screw that. Found identical lights for half that on Amazon. Probably could have found them a little cheaper if I shopped around, but $27 is a pretty reasonable price I think. They look nice, hopefully they'll be pretty bright.

I already have the tail lights... somewhere. The silver TJ that donated the frame to this Jeep had flush mount LED tail lights, but I seem to have misplaced them. I've looked everywhere it seems but can't find them. Hopefully they'll show up soon so I don't have to buy new ones...

I refuse to buy anything from them even if they were the last parts supplier on earth.
Nice build on the TJ, pretty cool to have a body shop at your disposal, i would go hog wild in there

Quick questions- is your trailer 24'?

You fit 2 TJ's correct?

Is it dove tailed or totally flat?

It's 25'

It fits my LJ and TJ fine. With the TJ on the back, the tires are near the edge and the bumper hangs off the back barely. 2 TJs would fit with plenty of room to spare. Post 158 in this thread has a picture of it.

Its a convertible dovetail trailer (its dovetailed but has a platform that can be raised to make it level). It's and equipment trailer though, I just use it for towing two Jeeps.

Corners have been final mounted. No pictures worth posting though because the lighting sucked.

I think the corners are the nicest looking part of the whole Jeep!





Finally got some decent pictures of the gas filler:

If I lived somewhere that had no mud and no rain I would consider going flareless, but it's not an option I'll consider where I live. The trails around here are muddy 75% of the time, and I dont enjoy getting mud flung all over me, and I definitely hate cleaning up the Jeep afterwards, so I want to keep the mud flinging to a minimum. Flares also make good sliders to keep rocks and trees away from the hood, and they're good for supporting the Jeep when you flop it (as I have done twice with my LJ). The driver's side of my LJ would have been destroyed the second time I flopped if not for the Metalcloak flares, instead you cant tell I ever flopped it. Eventually I'm going to make rear flares too, but thats a project for Future Jake. Present Jake wants to get this Jeep going so he can work on the LJ.
