Thanks, Straight. I like it too. It's no body shop quality work, but it'll do and looks great with the bedliner on there. I still need to seal it all up, but why bother when I'll probably cut the inner fenders out to make larger ones later. The extra clearance out back was definitely beneficial offroad. There were several times where I would have smashed my lower quarters in for sure.
Took the beast wheeling in October. Just now getting around to posting pics about it. First time offroading. Did well, considering what's done to it.
Just about all of the photos here are by Jeffro. (Thanks again, man) Here's his site. http://www.leiningerphotos.com

The trail report from the trip. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f58/j...012-a-1429856/
Towards the beginning of the day. Notice the lack of mud.
After about an hour of wheeling.
At some point, I got some mud in the RF tire's bead. Had to swap it out for my ****ty spare. Made it up a ledge/hill that some Xterras were having trouble with. Let's just say, there were a couple of tight trees up there. Any wider and I would have had some trouble.
Came across a small puddle early in the day. Stuck and churning up the mud. Rock the hell out of it and ended up backing out. Mud shot out of the frame rail (not pictured).
This was my second attempt at the same hole. I gave it hell. Only thing I ruined here was the air filter (didn't find that out until last month. ha).
Climbing. Let's just say, it wasn't having it.
and more spinning...
Sick shot by Jeffro. I dig it.
