Nice rig! Yeah, I wish I could've made my own fenders. I'm a very amaturish welder, so they would've sucked!

Contrary to other's opinions though, I'm a firm believer of the bolt-on stuff. Most companies do extensive research and several designs before the final product hits shelves, so buying those is really the smart thing to do for people like me!

Speaking of bolt-on stuff, those M37 style rear fenders of yours are EXACTLY what I planned for my Jeep! Would you make me a bolt-on set, please?!! LOL -jake

I could not agree with you more!

thanks!!!! I could not agree with you more! my master plan involves grafting a 9 slot willys mb grill into the wrangler opening. I did not have the time or mor importantly the money to buy a repo mb grill. I did this make over on the cheap and due to finding a sreaming deal on milspec paint, I was able to come in well under budget. Also, at my age i have learned not to do things twice, I figured why paint it now if I am going to tear it apart this winter or next.
I will be trying to pull the chrome inserts out soon, I actualy have someone who wants to buy them, so I am hoping they come out in one piece.

P.S. thanks for the compliments, everybody on this website has been great so far. and thanks for using "IMO" .most people say "IMHO". It's one of my peves, but if someone is taking time to post someting on the internet, they are not being the least bit humble.

I would love to make jeep stuff and get paid for it. That being said, to make rear fender like mine bolt on, you would go from 4 rather simple cheap pieces of steel, to 4 simple and 2 rather expensive pieces of steel. Welding the fenders on is easy peasy. Filling the 20 (yes 20) holes from the stock flairs is hard. You may want to see what a body shop would charge to fill the holes, then you could weld on the fenders yourself.

I realy like what you have done with your jeep. I was wondering what a fender blackout light, and grab handles would look like, and now I have budget for them.
I cant wait to see what you come up with on the inside.

The paint on the undercarrige was still wet when I went down there monday night before the cruise. I was out there every night till friday, but I didn't go to the actual cruise on saturday. I took my two year old to a tractor show on dream cruise saturday. Big loud tractors trump big loud cars in the eyes of a two year old.

That's awsome! Great fab work, very professional quality. And I like the digi-cam. What kind of top is on it? If it's a hardtop did you camo it too?

I was gonna comment about all that bling on the nose, but you already said you've got plans for that. That MB grill would look great.

Thanks for tha compliments, they give some value to spening too much time away from my son.

I bought the jeep with both factory tops, but since I finished the paint mid august I have not put the soft top on. if it rains I get wet. I am fortunate to have a house less than 3 miles from my job, if it looks like rain I can drive the car in the morning and the jeep at lunch or vice versa. the seats have gotten drenched twice at work so far, but if it looks like it might rain, I tip them forward and put a large garbage bag over them.
I did not paint the hardtop, as I didnt want to ruin its resale value, they are going for insane money right now in michigan and I might sell it.
I bought an old softtop for the header and I am going to make my own safari top out of some digital camo fabric I bought.

I really drive the jeep for the wind in the hair sunshine thing, and dont see the point in driving it in the salt, so In about two weeks I am going to put the hard top on it, take it up north and park it in the barn till spring.

an OD Green soft top would really compliment your rig. That paint scheme is a killer and I'm excited to see how an MB grille will look when retrofitted in there. Keep up the good work. You're now up there w/ tattooweeny for my favorite theme builds!

That is one professional looking camo pattern! I like it but I think I would lose the chrome on the grill and paint to match, maybe get some wagon wheels and paint those to match or leave them black.
