Why do you keep removing the whole fenders and putting them back on? Are you ditching the highlines
I had only removed the stock fender once so that I could start building the hi-lines. I got invited to go wheeling and since the hi-lines have not even been started, I just reinstalled the stock fender so I could make the trip.
I really wish I could just get the TNT Customs phantom hi-lines, but I am putting the money elsewhere. I will eventually get started on these dang fenders. I know once I get started it won't take long....just have to actually get started.
So slight change in plans. I, for lack of better words, bailed on my rockers.
I broke down and just ordered the Genright mini-boatsides. Should be here in the next day or two.
Too many things going on and my DIY stuff is just not getting done. However, at the same time, I still want the Jeep projects to continue moving forward.
I can find time to bolt stuff on, but doing mock-ups, fit-ups, cutting, welding, drilling, etc is just not working for me so well right now.
I still plan to build the hi-line fenders with the materials I have in hand.
I don't think so. Although I gouged one at BVORR the other weekend, my wheels are brand new. More than that, I am stepping up to a 35" tire, so the 15" will be better for that.
If I was ready for 37s, I would be all over them.
What are you looking at going with? Probably need to look over at COR for your build thread .
I might have to sell an organ to pay for it, but keep me in mind for that front axle of yours when you convince your wife to complete your set of RJ d60s. haha.
So I got an email Friday telling me that the plain boatsides are no longer offered by Genright. I really don't want side rails, but I want the mini-boatsides....so I am just going to go ahead and get their version that has side rails.
I suppose it won't be all bad, I know they have their benefits, steps in general typically just get in my way since my legs are so long.
So I have been trying to get working on mounting the 50" LED bar. I posted pictures of the Genright windshield armor that I purchased to build the mounts off of.
I ordered the same guards to make some for a buddy for his 50" bar.
My work pace is not as fast as he would like, so we ordered a set of the PSC mounts to get them moving faster.
I bolted the PSC mounts to my TJ to do a test fit with the 50" bar and it comes short about 2".
I am at the spot now where I suppose a 1" spacer for each side will be needed, along with longer bolts. I am going to swing by ACE to see what they have to take care of that.
I still plan to add to the Genright mounts as I prefer their fit better than the PSC. The PSC mounts are 3/16" steel vs the Genright 1/8"; however, I don't see this as being any sort of issue for the application. I actually plan to build my bracket add-ons similar to the styling of the PSC mounts for the JK, which has some bracing in it.
Some comparison shots...
Also, my Rigid Ind. 20" light bar mount came in for my F-250.
I found a few spare moments yesterday evening to mess with the PSC brackets for the 50" bar. The PSC brackets (two sets) are actually going on my buddy's TJ and his daughter's TJ; I am just getting them basically set up and ready to go.
The light bar falls about 1.25" short from reaching both sides of the mounts, so a small spacer will be used on each side of the light to take up that space. Other than that, they install great and look awesome.
I ordered some Genright light tabs to weld on to the PSC mounts to allow the Duallys to be mounted as well. I tacked those on last night and brought them in to work with me to have the guys do their magic with them.
It is hard to capture light output, especially inside. This is with the garage doors closed and all garage lights out.
The inspector was out this morning. The appraisal is next week, and then they want to close ASAP. No problem for us....just a little concerned about how long the garage is going to take to get packed up
They are supposed to break ground on the new house next week. We will be on our cruise, so hopefully we'll come back to some slight progress.
Not much new with the Jeep. We are just about moved out of the house. I have another evening in the garage to get my tools together and clean the workbench.
Everything is in storage until the new house is completed in October
I do have quick access to all of my Jeep parts and tools, so I will be able to get some work done on it in the meantime (while we live at my mother-in-laws).
