Yea, I had the money and decided I didn't want to leave it up to the steadiness of my hands with a sawzall as to whether they would look good or not Ultimately decided Metalcloak was the way to go

And just for laughs, I'm amused at how my apartment looks more like a 4WD shop than a place of residence.





Nothing but Jeep parts and boxes everywhere lmao

And to think, the lift with adjustable upper and lower CAs, adjustable track bar, antirock and springs still need to be added to the pile, along with the new steering stabilizer and IPF lamps... ahah. Have no idea how I'm gonna get all this **** to Colorado. Oh well, I'll get it there one way or another

Le self etching primer. It's a nice light olive color...



And after the final coats of the matte black with a light texture to match my sliders, bumpers and rear corners.







Weather was about damn near perfect for painting. Dry as a bone, 55 degrees, sunny and damn near no wind at all. 2 more weeks and these bad boys will be on the Jeep

Thanks, will probably get them on the Friday after Thanksgiving. I damn sure am not gettin caught up in all that Black Friday bull**** lol, figure might as well make good use of the time. Will rotate my tires, change the oil, top off all the fluids under the hood, throw on the new steering stabilizer and the fenders. Hope to get it all done through Friday and Saturday, then pick my uhaul up on Tuesday, get her loaded up and hello Colorado!

Quick update of sorts. Metalcloak fenders are on and have been for a good two weeks now. Did the repair on my hardtop, gonna fix up the paint on it next. Lift should arrive today, then will get to work on that, the antirock, upper and lower CAs, short shaft kit, TW shaft and Rancho shocks. Should make for a good time/weekend. Am officially in Colorado now, as you'll see from this picture.

Yessir, and to elaborate upon that, Gerald just informed me that I should be on the lookout for my lift Out for delivery, so Brown Santa should make me awfully giddy this afternoon. Then just need the winch and regearing later this month. She'll be nifty to say the very least.

And another photo for kicks.
