I like both, the black like you said will match the hardtop, but i think the red(if it is a little better pin pointed) i know its just photoshop, will look awesome too! I personally like the stock fenders and flares, but then again, i havent gotten to that point where more flexing room is desired. Both will do justice
Happy New Years Eve to me,
Happy New Years Eve to me!
I'd like no more vibes this year...
So I bought an SYE!
Adams Driveshaft - $385 shipped for the CV and SYE kit, both with a lifetime warranty. The owner of the shop (James) called 5 minutes after I ordered it on eBay and took my specs, and told me he'd have it ready to be shipped by the end of the day, so it should go out Tuesday! Need some guys for an SYE install party. Now taking reservations
Installed the BESRK Frame Tie-Ins today. Total beef. It's crazy the difference between these and the ones that Smitty shipped with the rear bumper. I can no longer wiggle the tire carrier back and forth (it was a small amount, and due to the crossmember flexing). Even took it towing today after installing, and brought about 1,500 lbs of trees home for the wood stove. No hesitation, no flex, no nothing from the bumper! Best $45 I've spent in a long time.
Here's a before shot of the old "reinforcement", then the after of the 1/4" thick beasts.
So with all of the wheeling I've been doing lately, and the fact that this is New England and most of it is on trails with plenty of trees, I've had many instances where my AM/FM antenna has whacked against my windshield and windshield frame. It's rather annoying, and I've been trying to come up with ways to avoid this. I found the AntennaX (eBay) product that is a 13" rubber antenna that is also known as a "stubby" for $15. I was going to go with this, but then I found something even cooler.
The Firestik antenna company makes a product called the Match-Maker. This is a unit that plugs in-line between the antenna and the CB radio, and allows the Firestik antenna to double as an AM/FM and CB antenna. This way I can completely remove my 31" antenna on the front fender. For $15 shipped on eBay, this will make a nice little addition to the rig. I'm having a little bit of worry if I'll like the look of no antenna up front, though. So if I don't I'll resell this and buy the stubby.
Anyway, here is the stock image. The real thing should be here by Tuesday or Wednesday, and the CV Shaft should also be in earlyyyyyy next week! Install party next Monday!
CV/SYE Kit arrived today from Adams Driveshaft in Nevada! Heavy box, but certainly a nice build. I'll have to go through the SYE stuff tomorrow and make sure it's all in there before we start the install this weekend (hopefully?). Plenty of slip in the CV shaft to allow for a tummy tuck in the very near future. Going to be making it myself, I do believe!
The drive shaft looks beefy. Where do you plan on doing the install?
Umm...... not entirely sure yet. Wanted to see how many people were interested in helping/where they all lived. Also depends on who's home here, cause we keep 4 cars in a driveway for 3 so parking is usually tight.
You working? Interested in helping? I know Geoff had said he might be interested, and Clay said he was too.
