Sold my hard top today! Just finished ordering me a brand new bestop supertop. Also blew out my power steering line today:/ got a new one of those on the way too.

Well I haven't posted in here in a while but after I sold my hard top I ordered a brand new bestop super top. Before the top could come in I replaced all of the gauges with digital red ones.

Also installed some red LEDs under the dash.

Finally my top came in! Woo!
Due to the roll cage I had to fold down my windshield to install it.

Finally got the top installed after fighting with it for a while!

Well I finally put some headers on! Fenderwell headers into 2.5" pipe into thrush welded mufflers then into 2.5" pipe exiting out the side before the tires! Idk why but the drivers side hangs a little low. I welded every joint myself. Waiting to try to fix the drivers side hanging low problem before I put the turn outs on. Video coming soon!

Okay so i really need some help from you guys. Ive got all my paint and materials to paint my jeep and now I need to take care of body work. First thing that's really bothering me is my front fenders. The have a ton of rust spots, holes, and spots that rust completely ate away.

So I have a few options that I'm strongly considering.

Option A: keeping the fenders I have, patching and fixing all my rust and holes.

Option B: order replacement factory fenders

Option C: order a set of tube fenders or tube fender kits and install them

Option D: make my own custom tube fenders.

What do y'all think I should go with?
