Just noticed the vents on the fenders. Did they come with something, or are you going to put something like chicken wire on the other side?

Oh no, you said chicken wire

Rokmen Includes a wonderful piece of stamped mesh with stainless hardware. I just will install after the paint process is finished.

Now that is what I am talking about. That is exactly what I was thinking it would have. I take it that you will be painting it black right? If it were a shiner, fancier Jeep, the polished color might look cooler.

Excellent job John.

I can't wait to see your rig with the rest of the armor on it, keep up the great work.

Fitting the Rokmen sliders and corner armor.

I did a bit of fitting today. Had to trim about 3 inches off the sliders. Punched all the holes for the sliders and the corner armor. Just cannot decide on the corners, Painted? Bare? Flare? No Flare? Rounded Opening? or a Rokmen style opening?

You mean you have to trim the Rockmen rockers to fit the Rockmen fenders?

Also picked up a set of LED marker lights for the front.

For color? Honestly I think if you could match a color as close to the color it is now, thats what you should do. Like a hammered silver. And then do red rockers maybe? Lemme know if you want me to photoshop anything.
