Just buy some rubi flares, you could use the extra width anyway I'm sure

So... Despite not having everything 100% done I went ahead and started putting the last few "must have" items back on the Jeep.



Tomorrow and Sunday will be spent checking, tightening, and tuning everything so I can hopefully do some wheeling Monday.

So... I need to make some room in the drive way. Any readers in the NE area interested in a 89 Camaro RS project car?(currently not running due to a fuel issue) Or maybe some brand new wheel spacers? Perhaps some OE fender flares?

Yes. The third break light is still there as well, even though you can't see it from behind.

Jeep Thoughts of the Day:

To bed line the interior or to not bed line the interior. That is the question...
