Yea, usually works, but yesterday being Thanksgiving didn't help, and the few friends that would help had to work today, so no dice. And I wanted to get it done over these days.

But I did mangae to get the other side done and Currie steering on, just need to attach the steering stabilizer, maybe tomorrow, along with the brakes. Looking like no rain just a bit chilly, but I can handle that.

So far the ball joints/hubs have fixed the passenger tire that was leaning in at the top. One of the last times out I bashed the ZJ rod pretty bad and I think that blew the ball joints as well.

Well over last weekend I got everything I had previously posted installed, but the front brakes (didn't want to deal with the break in just yet). So far rides real nice again, so no complaints!

Also Brown Santa just dropped off these...

Damn I need a garage bad. Was planning on getting the sliders and diff covers on, plus a possible oil change, but looks like the weather is turning for the worst soon, so I don't feel like starting on all that and have to lug everything in before it starts to rain. Plus its effin' cold out there... Bummer. Not to mention I still will have to paint everything before final mounting, so it may be a while before I can get to these.

Cool build! I have a Silverstone 01 with similiar mods. I ordered the Rokmens as well and am trying to decide on black or go color matched. Are you staying black or going to color match later?

Thanks! These fenders are real nice, solid product and easy to construct. As for paint, I originally wanted to match, but I was in a rush so just went with black, but now I like them as is and they will be real easy to touch up. Maybe at some point once the weather is nice again, I'll give matching them another thought. I do have the paint, so we will see, but I will definitely be matching the half doors before they go back on to cut down on the black.

They were each wrapped in plastic and boxed up in a beefy box with a smaller box with the hardware/stickers. No damage at all and everything was there. Solid job on their end.

Had yesterday during the day off so I mounted, drilled and trimmed the A to Z sliders. Then brought them to work last night, painted them up and mounted them today after work. Can't wait to slide them on some rocks!

How was your experience with Ballistic? I am considering an order from them. Are the diff covers as strong as they are purported to be?
