So if what I'm reading is correct you used tj highline fenders for the front?

Since it will be winter and I only have bikini top, windjammer and soft doors, I will be staying on I 20 on the way out. If I have time, I will try and wheel in NM before I get to Phoenix. I have to be in Phoenix by the 16th of Jan.

That is correct. The only thing I couldn't get to match up perfect was the front of the flare to the grill. I trimmed the gusset on the front of the fenders so that I could match the curve of the grill but the fender is a little long. My grill hoop hides it pretty well. No one has noticed yet

Awesome you are going right through town here in midland/Odessa, tx. You will want to stop off in las cruces and wheel. It right on the way and it is a blast. Contact the Las Cruces 4 wheel drive club and see if someone can go out the with you. It's not too hard to navigate unless you run Tabasco Twister, it's out of the way from the other trails pretty far.

Here is the map if you want google gps I can send you that also.

Check out my build thread for pics of these trails. The latest set are the mid level trails but if you go back a few pages you can see one of the harder trails pictures.

Amazing. I just read through all 19 pages with a stomach full of turkey and a nice beer. Like you, I loved the original fastback style of the stock roll bar, but I think you did an awesome job making it safe for the kids and making it look good.

Got any new pics for us?

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Between work, kids and travel, I have not been productive on the Jeep or hunting. Still have the Jeep torn apart to figure out the evil noises coming from the belt. I hope to have some time when I get back to town. Gonna try and wheel Beasley Knob before they close it for the winter.

I also just read through the build and it looks great. I would love to see some pics of it wheeling. Love the color and good luck with the belt. Oh and I think the cage looks great

If I don't go duck hunting in the morning, then I will get the jeep drivable so I can get this belt working. Next time I go wheeling, ill try an remember to take the nice camera so I can edit the file size and hopefully upload some more wheeling pics.

Well, I didn't go duck hunting but I did do some deer hunting this weekend. No Luck.
I went ahead and changed the bulbs in my headlights while I had the grill off. I had lost one of the low beams. Put in some new PIAA H4 bulbs. Got the grill mounted back up and the battery was dead. Ill charge it and see where I am.

The weather finally broke today and I got home early to try and get. Few things done on the heep. One of the tires kept going flat and there was no obvious damage just a slow leak. So I pulled the valve core an it was pretty dirty. Filled the tire back up and reinstalled the valve core. We will see if it holds.
Put a little more tension on the fan belt and it is much better. Took it for a drive so I loaded up about 1 lb of scrap so I could weigh it at the recycler. Haha.
Jeep weighs 4220 with
Me= 180
Soft doors two child seats and half tank of gas

Not bad. That is what it weighed before the stretch

Seems like you made out good then. I want to do the same with mine as soon as it arrives back in the driveway

Forgot to mention that when I pulled up on the scale, I got a front end weight of 2200lbs.
Pretty good for having an iron block V8 in the front. When I get my spare tire mounted, it will be close to 50/50
