My first real 'fab': Rocker Guards, starting rear bumper tonight
Although it's a relatively simple project, I'm starting to fabricate my own parts for the jeep.
For the first time in my life, I now own a grinder, welder and have my own larger garage. I also have more cars than just my jeep at my disposal. This means it's time to start doing stuff.
One side of my jeep was involved in a hit and run. The other side rocker guard received some *concrete rash* while rock crawling up the front steps of a building during college.
While I was out picking up some thick 14 gauge tubing for some bumpers and a tire carrier I saw some angle steel. I decided to pick some up and do my own rocker guards.
So for around $20, I'll patch my existing damage. Below is an initial picture. After my final clear coat dries and I can get them installed, I'll upload the before and after pictures. Too bad my new flares are on back order; you'll have to see my factory flares until then.
(These 33's look really small in my wheel wells right? I think I need to find some used crawling 35's I can occasionally exchange with these.)
Alright...I've always wanted to fabricate my own parts. Hopefully this will be the first of many other posts.
