To Carlos that makes alot of sense. I wasn't sure what you were looking for. On a side note i bet the MCEs would actually break before they bent all the way and hit your hood. But that still would suck. On mobile so i can't look and see if you considered making your own. If you have the equipment and time that would save you a whole lot of money. Trailtubes i think sells the tube pre bent all you gotta do is weld.
Unfortunately I'm no welder however they sent me a return order so hopefully it won't take long to get my correct fenders.

Wow, I can't believe I just read the whole thing! Oh, and you have some strange friends, but it made for entertaining reading...

Nice build so far, I look forward to seeing what's next. Are you staying with the white paint?

Now off to start on 8pitchers build... wish me luck.

If yer gonna fight, fight like the third monkey on the ramp to Noah's Ark.

It will take you a lifetime to read through the crap on 8pitchers build, but it's nice to know that someone would put the time into reading my learning process! Thanks

And as for paint, I'm beating myself over the head with 2 other options, however I'm not set on anything yet!

LOL... I'm at work for a couple more days with not a heck of a lot to do, so you know, it's nice to have a project...

I'm doing Monstaliner inside and out on mine eventually, black in the tub, and leaning towards orange outside.

Give a holler when you get back down to Florida, I'm not far from Lakeland, and might know some of the same folks. I don't really know any of the Hard Core folks, but I've been out with the Tri-County crew.

If yer gonna fight, fight like the third monkey on the ramp to Noah's Ark.

And I definitely will man, I always wanted to go out with the tri-county crew. I'm no longer with hardcore after a mess of none sense went down. We disbanded and now the rest of us are assembling something new.

Yeah, a few of the ex-Hardcore guys were out last time I got together with TCJ. Tri-county are a bunch of good folks though, really enjoyed running trails with them.

I'm sure we will all run together one day, there is only so much wheeling space in Florida. Look forward to meeting you.

No doubt... although I'll be lucky to get the Jeep rolling before spring, and the F-450 is a touch big for most of the Jeep trails...

Anybody have a 4.5" hole saw they wouldn't mind letting me borrow? I've got a new set of tail lights to go in the jeep soon!
