Wheels look good there Al. Non beadlocks? I can't see so good.

I found a set of diy fenders on blue torch fab's site for $159 that I was gonna post up here for you TJ guys.

Beadlocks were 4 weeks out. I was gonna run the dodge wheels then order beadlocks when we got back from drummond. they didnt work, drummond is a week and a half away. Couldnt wait. Got this set at a good price. Ill find a tow rig they fit and then get beadlocks later in life.

My buddy made his own limiting straps out of steel cable. Welded tabs top and bottom, then looped the cable through and put u-bolts at each end. Cheap, strong, and adjustable.

Drummond sounds fun. I won't be ready in a week though.

I got a DIY highline tube fender kit from a vendor here. None of the holes line up correctly. I sent the guy a PM earlier today to see if maybe I got the wrong parts or something.

I'm considering the Rokmen ones because I can guarantee they will fit correctly, but didn't want to spend premium money on the ugly Jeep.

no it's a three link. The upper is on the passenger side.
Yea I destickered the whole jeep, except for my Moab ones on the hood. Quit hanging out with some of the groups I ran stickers of. Wanted to rebadge it. When it's done, it will get a bath and some new stickers.
No paint, besides a spray can coat on the sliders.

I can say that rokmen makes a great product. I just finished color matching and installing mine. Couldn't be happier with them.

Goes by the name of AresFab here on JF. Here's a thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f43/d...-kits-1460614/

Send him a PM for a price. He's been responsive to my PMs and questions. He responded to one of my PMs today, Saturday, so that's pretty good in my book. Very reasonable price, however, expect to do some cutting and fitment. I'm still a little concerned about the fitment of the pieces. We'll see how it shakes out. Luckily I'm not in a terrible hurry to get this done.
