Aren't you worried about rubbing now that your only on 2" springs? When I had 2" springs I looked in there and I didn't see a possible way for the flip kit to work easily.

In related news I shipped out my corner armor, and half doors to Hendrix yesterday. I will be getting his hiline'd hood and all the parts including my new fenders will be painted by him to match my jeep so I'm pretty pumped!

Didnt see anything today man, maybe Monday. I will send you pictures as I prep the parts for paint. You have to let me know where you want the flare welded to the corner. And what about the 3/4 Led lights? Did you send those? Your Hood has to be custom the PSC fenders do not follow the same line as the DIY Rokmen Kit. It could be user error on installation. I am building you a hood like I had on Flop with Genright vents and Daystar Hood pins.

I checked the tracking and it said Monday. As far as the flare if you dont mind shooting me a pic with them mocked up against the armor. My only concern is leaving enough room for my Rokmen strykers.

the LEDs are 3/4" but I did not send them. Do you need me to?

As far as the hood with vents and pins that sounds awesome man sorry the fenders didnt fit to the flop and now it created more work for you.

This stretch is coming together nicely. Random question of the day, did those Genright stretch corners not come with holes to mount stock fender flares?

Getting out of work early today and will be putting in a few hours on the jeep cutting out the pieces of steel needed to patch the frame.

Also made the Facebook announcement yesterday that my wife and I are expecting a kid come September!! My dogs pretty excited...
