Angry-I know, the arched look goofy, right? Well, they grow on ya.

I went arched because I am going for a LCG rig. These are 6" flares. This is pure stock, no lift. It is a lot of room isn't it? Probably going 35s and hope no rub problems. If so I will just do a RE 2" budget boost. Whether you go arched or not you will be happy with Metalcloak.

I'm in canada so the prices are more here than the US will pay. I picked them up from Lordco parts as they are close and convenient.

Nice build thread dude, I have a soft spot for Rubi's. I need to start my build thread for my Rubi soon. If you haven't already check out Imped and Pumpkinator's build threads if you're going LCG build. I am sure they're many others though. Never been a big fan of the yellow but I think yours looks good. Ill be keeping my eye on your build thread.

I just stumbled on to your build and must say I am impressed! Great detail and enthusiam. I'm also running the same suspension package as you and am glad you went that route as well. It's a great setup and I'm very pleased with it. I'll be following this build. Cheers!

Its more of the 6" wide flare I dislike, the arched arent bad. Overlines I like a little more though.

Save your time and money on bedlining the tub, I did it to my last jeep and it was a pita to clean. Almost impossible to be honest.

Its your jeep though itll look great just hard to clean thats all.

Yeah I am more of a fan of the overline. I know that people with the monstalined tub said it was relatively easy to clean because it has a smoother finish than other tub liners. I say you'd be fine. Plus it looks awesome.

The OME feels really good, i'm very happy with it so far also! Its been a few weeks now and the suspension is broken in now i think, Its even smoother than when it was first put in. I love it! Thanks for the build love, Cheers!

unfortunately its law here in BC to have the fender flair's line up with or over hang the tire.
I've read some bedliners are kinda hard but monstaliner is much easier to clean, what liner do you have in your tub?

oops sorry i didn't look at your details, Yeah lordco is a warn distributor and they'll get any part for you if asked,(i guess saskatchewan has lordco?) just have the warn part number and a bit of patience because they dont usually sell the warn stuff, I wouldnt say they are cheap, but they are reliable and close. I also picked up the purple royal Tranny oil from there too.

Took her wheeling the other day - unfortunately it wasn't fun! just logging roads up in the mountains and getting stuck in deep snow! the jeep performed well - much better than its stock height - but that bloody shovel really annoys me! I got to use the winch lots of times but almost had to sleep in the car - things were pretty bad - I don't like Snow wheeling alone and i probably shouldn't have gone so far in such fresh trails anyway here are a couple of pics!








this was about 60km down a logging road and you can see in this last pic i am on my way back from giving up And my diff had created a rather large indent in the middle of the rutts.

Lessons learned from this trip: Need Bigger Tires - Need Tummy Tuck - Need compressor - Take 2 Vehicles When encountering Snow!

Time taken door to door: 12 hours ....
