Looks like the TJ MCs all have the same 3 bolts on the sides with the odd looking metal plate, but I'm guessing the bolts actually have a funtion. Hopefully they didn't put them there for looks. How are you liking the looks of them so far? How well do they line up with all of the factory parts?
Ya I had the MCs sitting in my house for quite a few weeks waiting for a weather window to paint and instal them. I almost had you shop them in when you did that other stuff for me but I didn't want to ruin the surprise lol.

Got the rhino off. I can't find your chop job pic otherwise I would have posted before and after shots in your thread....

Anyways I love them. The installation was easy and straight forward, everything lined up great and they are strong and beefy as all hell. I'm more than happy that its the route I took.

It looks great too. Especially with the lift/tire combo. At least to me it does!

Cheers

That's funny.

Yeah man, looks good! Why I mentioned that about the parts lining up was because I came across an older thread where some guys were posting pics of the fender hitting the side of the hood and bolts hitting and squeaking on the underside of the hood. Did you go with steel or aluminun? I may be way off, but I'm thinking 35s with no lift and the mod cut rears would be pretty dam sweet.

The bolts on the underside of the hood that mount the inner fender to the main fender are what give the problem. When I first installed they rubbed but I simply removed and installed the bolts the opposite direction. No more interference as they are capscrews

It would look like this with no lift and the cut.

Yeah man, that looks good. Maybe he's running 15" wheels, those look a little small. That's actually a little more clearance than I expected though. You know I had to photoshop it to check it out lol edit: who's jeep is that. Do they have anymore pics?

This is what I came up with. Same tires I'm running now, only in 35s. This pic is without the mod cut though.

I see. So the bolts are there to just hold the access cover on. Hmm. I figured there had to be a functional reason for that. Thanks man!

Good looking jeep man. Post 'em up when you find 'em. I'd like to check it out. I'll see if I can track down your build, if you have a thread. Edit: Was Sparrows right, is this pic prior to the lift? I see that you have 3" coils and 1" BL currently, but it does appear to have a small lift in the pic.

The 1" BL is all that is on in that pic. I'll get some more pics up when I get home from work tonight from when that's all i had. Assuming if you wanna go that route and keep it low you'll want a small BL to do a TT to bring the driveline up out of the way. Build thread below

no lift and 35" tires :


It now has a 4" lift. So will probably go to a 37" tire (with other mods) once the 35" tires are worn out.

Thanks for posting. Good looking jeep man. Yours is one that I have been looking at as well. Did you just tired of the lower stance or was the 4" the original plan?

If I were to do it all over again I'd try for a 1" hs lift and 37s. Find travel somehow.

I gotta give it to you, the 37s do look pretty dam awesome, but yeah, I'm thinking 35s with no lift will most likely be the route I take. Maybe the 1" BL, not 100% sold on it yet though.

A 1" bl and no lift would be solid especially for when you get into the tts and drivlines
