I had to use ratchet straps to get my GR fenders on. Royal PITA.

Hurry up and get them done

But I can assure you this is not the case. I will get them on one way or the other. I am more concerned about my suspension setup and it's ill affects on the jeep.

No more comments about my man strength


Glad to hear it wasnt just mine but the fitment overall from genright blows

Angry is an adopted southern for being in this thread. Im sure we could work something like that out with you.

Vohn, that frame stuff sucks. Time for a frame chop? Or a frame swap?

the frame is only 5mm out of factory spec so I'm having some other issues i need to look at. probably gonna start with trace bars then control arms

adoption sounds great,

And are you sure the body itself isnt tweaked? check the inside of the tub?

thanks. i haven't owned any PBR's but my brother seems to like them. unfortunately the bias ply in 35's on comes in super wide so he went with the radials. i love the bias irocs. they work very well in many different conditions and super swamper is only 20 minutes away

damn, so its been a half a year since I've been in here. things have been crazy for me lately but now that everything is slowing down (got married June 13th) its time to start wrenching on the crawfish again.

my brother, cousin and I have been in the process of moving into a new shop we are renting from a family friend. its spacious and dirty, perfect for the 3 of our jeeps. we have run power to handle welding equipment so that will be coming shortly hopefully.

when i left off here, i was in the middle of my genright tube fender project which i will be completing soon. ill be out of town for the 4th but next week i am going to be full speed ahead to get it completed.
