Looks great. Forget the fenders and get some armor. Tuttle will kick your tail if you keep bouncing off those rocks.

Reminds me of my TJ. I will try to post pics later. It looked almost identical to yours. Burgandy with tan hardtop....immaculate shape (Sahara). My wife says I am the only nut in the world who will take a sawz-all to a brand-new looking vehicle...

So...I sold the hardtop, stripped down the paint, rhino-lined the entire Jeep inside and out (actually, I still have to do the doors, grill and hood...just gotta make time, doh). Cut the front AND rear fenders.....home-fabbed metal rear flares made after cutting a larger opening for the rear tires (still need to add tubing), added some small tubing to line the cut flat fenders I made. The goal is to run a 4" SL with a triangulated rear and possibly 35's with little (1.25") or no BL. I am trying to get it in the air, but keep COG in check as well....hmmmm.

Regardless, some expensive and unexpected costs (not realted to vehicles) came up, so that is why I did the poor man stuff for now. In a couple of years, it should be reeeeaallly rock-pimped, but I am pleased so far. The net result should look pretty mean.

Good luck on your Jeep bud, looks great...keep up the great work.

You say "traded" tops. Did you use a local shop or a friend or what? I am looking into this soon I think.

crap, just saw this reply.
thats Smithville Lake. but you cant play around it. i actually
got in trouble for parking there to take pics cuz i was on the
grass. the best place for you to go test your tires is probably
gonna be Tuttle Creek. its by Manhattan, KS.

i just got done washing it in that pic, and there is no leak thanks

and i have recently repainted the bezels and flatfenders.
