Built an engine skid. Pictures to come soon. Also we flexed it out with a fork lift to determine the size of bumpstops needed and wow she sure can flex. Looks like im going to need 3" all around not because of the fenders but the shocks are maxed out. Also the arms are hitting the frame.

I didn't get any pictures but when I install my engine skid I have to flex it out and make sure nothing hits it. So I'll take some poser shots then.

Update: first off I know I owe you guys some jeep porn. Right now i don't have much but if it's light out when I get home I'll try to snap some pictures.

Engine skid is all done and painted. I just need to mount it.

Wired up my front metal cloak led blinkers.

Rear bumper is close. Need to finish building the tire carrier, the frame tie ins and paint it. Here's two pictures. I'm farther than the pictures show now.





Last week I ordered genright rear 4" tube fenders. On Sunday I dry fitted them and painted them up so hopefully ill get down to my rents house to put them on Tuesday.

I believe my next purchase is going to be front antirock. It was going to be steering but rock krawler has not came out with their new set up yet. So front antirock it is I think. Might get the rear while I'm at it just not sure I haven't heard much about the rear not sure if it's worth it. Im thinking it is. Any thoughts guys.

Next item to build would be rock guards. Hopefully I can get together with ken this weekend and at least bend the tube for them.

Ok so the last owner put the these front rock guards on Winona



And when I took it off I couldn't get all the tape off.



Any one have any ideas? I've tried goo b gone. And on my old stock fenders I have tried diesel, rubbing alcohol and parts cleaner.

your gonna either A) live with the glue residue on there or B) go get it painted which i had done. my hood also had that fake plastic stone hood protector 60 dollar piece of plastic caused 400 in paint work to have my whole entire hood redone, never again, i tried just about every cleaner known to man and it seemed like it stained itself into the paint or something, it sucks but good luck.

3M make a really good product that should take that off. Comes in a small black can and most of the parts stores carry it. You just have to soak it and let it work a little. It should loosen that junk up.

you could wet sand it with like 2k grit but be very careful, you may be able to get away with that
