With the TJ fenders, are they roughly the same length? If you say I can do it with minimal modification, I'll pull the trigger and get this done. Along with the soft top. And again, this thread is turning into my bible.

I believe that the Tj fenders are the same length as the Yj fenders, but they are a bit taller. I had to cut the bottom of my fenders flush with the tub. I don't remember off hand how much. UNless you are going with heavy steel flat fenders I would stay with the Yj stock fenders. A lot less fabrication than putting stock TJ fenders on the Yj.

There is another thread on here that walks through the TJ grille install better than what I do here. Ill see if I can find it.

Thanks man. Appreciate it. Well, time to get to cutting.

I have decided to make a few mods to the body and possibly the suspension of the Jeep. I didn't think that I needed to start a new thread to do that I also dont think that I should include these mods in my phase II thread where I just finished installing a 5.3l and 4L60E. I figured that while I'm not wheeling during the winter I might as well make some upgrades.

A few things that were giving me problems were the rear Rubicon flares, having no step to get in and out of the Jeep and I may need to adjust the ride heigh along with the pinion angle of the rear axle. I am going to hold off on adjusting the rear pinion angle as I dont know if I will stick with the 4L60E as I already miss having a 5 speed. So we will see. I do however plan to go up to 37's here shortly so I need a little more clearence. Which may or may not mean high fenders or more lift.

To get stared I went on over to Genright's site and ordered up a few things. It should all be here on Tuesady next week. So Ill start getting everything mocked up and ready for paint then. I'm going to go with spray boming them this time. I have some tips on doing spray paint, having it actually look good and be durable.

Honestly the problem I am having is with my kids climing on them. The older they get the more they are deforming under there weight when they climb in.

I want something that is more structural for them to step on.

Also I am going for 35s to 37s. The 35s with my low lift is just enough clearance. Te 37s are going to rub.
