I've thought about it, just seems like such a task vs painting the uppers lol yeah, I'm sometimes lazy. Plus I still have my soft uppers too I would have to paint as well.

How do you like the Metal Cloak fenders? I like the look of them and the Sheet Meat fender walls. Meet them at a Metal Cloak event near Sacramento, I think there based out of there. Good group of guys. I'm just worried about getting a ticket. Is your jeep considered street legal? Looks nice!

I love my cloaks. They are beef. I've literally stood on the fender like matson does in his video when I was working in the engine bay. They're extremely well built.

Arizona does not have fender requirements on jeeps, they're considered an suv(or stationwagon lol) so I am street legal. Check your local laws for your state. Guys like Zte87 have to run the 6" flares to stay legal in their states.

Yeah in California I would probably need the 6" flares. Matson took me for a ride in a JK with their GAME CHANGER suspension. It was a white knuckle ride, it was in the dirt. Way Cool!

I'm intrigued by their 6-pak shocks. I really want to give them a try but that shock body looks way too big

Thats not to bad.........I sold my origanl hard doors for 800 bones to fund my 8.8 and regreted it bad. I hated my half doors since when it was warm enough to run no uppers I would just run doorless!
Thd current doors I horse traded a set of tj shafts and old modded tj uppers I scored haha!

Haha that is a deal!! I've contemplated selling these sliders which could probably score close to $500, but i kinda felt bad bc this random guy was so nice to have given them to me I feel like I owe it to him to use them... Lol

Awesome day today at a very cool event, Airpark Jeep Jam 8.

Started with a VERY LONG trail run. We ran close to a total of 80 miles dirt road, washboard, washes, sand, and rocks. Didn't stop very much but managed to snap a few.









Little editor




Back at the dealership for the raffles and vendor expo



There was two more rows of vendors, a zip line, free BBQ, and a bunch of cool jeeps. Fun day

So I picked up a steal on craigslist tonight. 2 PRP daily driver suspension seat with adjustable lumbar supports. Dark green and tan cordura fabric. They seem comfy so far, but I'll review them after I get them in the jeep and assess them properly after a run. They're my first time ever sitting in suspension seats so I have no comparison other than my 18yr old stock seats



Pulled out the passenger seat for the first time ever



Mocked one in. Gotta go to ace tomorrow and get some hardware to installation. The seats came with Tj/Lj brackets too that bolt right up to my seat sliders so no drilling for me!!



And lastly, Carnage from yesterday's excursion. Broken mount and bent shock


I don't know if I can straighten the shaft, but I'm goin to try.

I looked at some bilstein 5100 and 5150s which I would love to have but that's 2-300 for a pair of rears or just fork out the 50 for a replacement RE twin tube... I probably will go the latter route. Honestly didn't even notice a difference with out the shock.
