Not without removing the fender liner.

I got if off.....finally.

Now I'm taking a break, regaining my composure......

My knuckles are bleeding. Go figure. How come I always put the gloves on after I start to bleed?

Ok, so I had to get in the back seat to get the rear most side bolt, while the wife tightened the screw from the outside. All went fine, until I got out of the jeep, then I smacked my ******* head on the wood braces that support my garage door.....blood everywhere!

Taking a break.....don't want to lose my temper.

My tiny garage is going to kill me one of these days.

Sliders are on, now I just have to get the rear flare back on.

You guessed it, I'm taking a break.

The head is hard as a rock, so it'll be fine. It stopped bleeding after a few minutes of pressure. I should have shot video, I was holding pressure on the cut with my left hand, while tightening a nut with the right, while the wife held the allen wrench on the screw... I said a couple of choice words when I smashed my head, which caused be to fall back into the back seat of the jeep, but then I laughed.

But it's all done now, and worth every bit of the blood, sweat and ....well I didn't shed any tears.









Now I need my engine skid, getting that March 5th, and possibly paint the headlight bezels black.

Anything else I do, will be a bonus, since I'm "technically" out of jeep money....

ps. I didn't install the internal braces yet. I've had enough for now. I'll do those when it's warm and I don't have to be in my garage.

They're trimmed. I was thinking maybe trimming them some more, but it didn't rub anything when I wheeled it, so I may just leave it as is. I know I won't mess with it while it's cold out. I'm not going back in that garage anytime soon.
