Tube fenders kiwi style

Hi all,

Heres some what mid way through making my tube fenders (Sorry I didnt get any photos of me taking the front apart or making them).

Trying to make them similar to Genright ones but with but more flare.

Can i suggest putting a Tube or two in the rear to help brace the load against firewall? I was reading up on some builds and one of them a guy made his fenders like you have done and rubbed some rocks with it and bent one side of firewall back a bit. Just triangulate a couple pieces behind the sheet in the rear.

Looks awesome. Wish my xj was done so I could start the yj!

Hey,
After years of research the jeep bonnet prop will be going into production next year lol.

Go 4wheeling mainly in forests or on beaches in the dunes.
