Well, one company did not have them in stock and did not answer their phones for 2 days (I tryed them first because they have been great in the past). So, the second company answered their phones, and got the corners to my door in 3 days. And Jeff at Rokmen has answered my 5 or so emailed questions already.

Gonna try to get these mounted and powder coated this weekend after I get back from Sicily Island (wheeling and camping).

Thanks! Definitely do every time. Went this weekend and still waiting on some pics and videos. Got pretty suck and almost rolled in a deep mud hole.

Finally started installing the corners. Driver side pretty much done.

Was there any tweaking required on the corner to get it to fit correctly ?

Not so far. I'm not sure if the hareware is the correct lengths.

A few wheeling pics from last weekend. Camping with an old friend and meeting new ones while jeeping. Great weekend.





We did not take many pictures.... Just rode about 15 trails in two days.

Finished the corners last night. Took about 4-5 hour total to install them by myself. Very good product and I was incorrect when I said the hardware might be off above. Maybe one of the easiest installs I have even done. Highly recommend this kit to anyone. I do not have any finished pictures but will post some when I do. The fitment between the slider that I have and the front edge of the corners leaves a little to be desired, but I think I will just upgrade the sliders as soon as it get on my nerves. If all of rokmen's stuff is this easy, I will return for the next heavy duty body part.

The Jeep has been making some noise around the front since the last wheeling trip. Turns out the dana 30 passanger side u joint broke and was just flopping around in the axle. So, started fixing that last night until I did not have the correct tool to continue (not as hard as I would have thought the job would be). Will continue tonight.



Also, decided to paint the front grill. I have been wanting to for a while, just been lazy. (still without the bezels which we drying).



I think the black in the front kinda makes the back in the back make more sense and not just look like miss colored body panels. Plus there was some damage on three of the grill pieces (from the upright) and dead bugs were starting to eat away at the paint.

I believe it was duplicolor bed liner.
