My 14 year old cousin came over to help out. This was his first time with a welder and a plasma cutter. He did great! Maybe he will start looking at getting a jeep for his first rig…..

I realize that it varies by state/municipality but have you had--as Borat would say--great success w/ the law w/ this setup?

I would recommend a grinder with a metal cut off wheel. Might sound odd but it cuts very well and is easy to control. I have some experience with cutting plastic and have tried/ used everything I could think of. Also use the grinder to smooth out the edge after you cut it (side of cut off or fine flapper), with not much work it will look factory (use tape to get all your lines right). And don’t be afraid to throw down some nice new paint. Good luck! PM me some pictures after you cut them.
PS- try cutting a practice cut on the forward portion of the flare that is all waste anyway.


Thanks for all the support!
I need to add a cross member or something for the body mounts under the bed of the LJ tub. And also beef up the upper rear track bar mount. Then, I get to start welding up the sheet metal! I am pumped; it will start looking like a jeep again (to the untrained eye).

If you get serious about it, drop me a line. I would be willing to build/sell/ ship some frame extensions to you.
