The company that makes them apparently wants somewhere around $750 to do the frame work and weld them in. I'm really not interested in spending that much, so hopefully one of the guys in the club will help me out with it.
Ive done two jeeps with autorust parts. One was with those exact parts ^. Its a ***** to do. Just take a ton a measurements before and after. I did one side at a time to have the other side to reference off of. The main issue on those is welding. Personally if i were to do it again i would undo the body mounts and lift the body where your working a few inches. The inboard side of the frame also needs to be welded making it very difficult to get the welding torch in there. Get prepared to get burnt alot if you dont have a lift. I removed my gas tank for safety and to make it easier to work on. just drop you gas tank when its empty.

Good luck!

Okay. Got off my ***. Here are the pics.

Awesome run. Driving up Friday in a horrific rain/thunder/lightening/fog/wind/storm was great. Really got to use my lighting system going over the Appelachian mountains on the switchbacks. We were communicating on CB, and at one point got separated on a back-country road around 11PM. Turned around only to find Geoff practically flopped in a ditch on the side of the road. Strobes went on, blocked the road, and pulled him out with Jarret's jeep. Set up camp, a fire, and their tents (I comfortably slept in the back of the TJ). Got started late on Saturday morning, and needed to winch a few times, but all-in-all it was a great time. I'm an idiot and forgot my dSLR so these photos were taken on Geoff's PowerShot.

Carnage: I ripped my rear passenger shock mount off the ECGS 8.8... must have come down on a rock or two too hard. Chipped some paint on the TNTs (passenger, against a rock wall), beat the **** out of the skid plates, and did some bumppity on the front bumper. Also blew the bead on my rear driver's side tire (10psi) while going down a rock-bedded river... Swapped it for my spare and kept going. Also did some scraping to the aluminum Canyon rims. Still drove home under my own power.

Things to note for when I love the Jeep enough to put more money into it: I need a new front bumper. Something to improve my approach angle. Also the Tummy Tuck would have allowed me a better shot at traversing most of the ledges. And, as should be expected, a more aggressive tread pattern would prove beneficial.




Then there was that time Geoff almost flipped it in a ditch...






Camp...






Trail...

Looks like you had a good time. Great pics, so that was OFR?

That hillclimb you winched up, do you think you would have made it with a different tire or were the conditions too slick?
