Great Looking Jeep!

Any issues with the 285's and just a standard OME HD? I'm about to do my install and haven't purchased tires yet, I keep going back and forth between 265's and 285's. I know you said you did the fender mod's, I'm planning on those regardless of which tires I get.

One other question for you- where did you find that OBA system? I like that!

Its an OME HD with MLLs in the rear. Before the MLLs I didnt do the entire rear fender and I crunched one full flex. After MLLs, they provide a lil more lift which helped the 285s clear with 1.5” spacers.

I couldn't be happier with this setup.

The OBA system was a gift from the gf. I told her id been looking into an OBA system and she did her homework. Its a ViAir system. One of their vendors is on here always helpin out. Mine is the economy 400c model

Alright, So I've been contemplating doing this for a while. I finally bit the bullet. I decided to bedline the fenders. Fenders ONLY.

I picked up some Rust-Oleum spray on bedliner.
forumrunner_20120715_113126.jpg

I had used this on a buddy's tundra to see how the finish would look.

So then another friend of mine helped me mask out the area we were going to paint.
forumrunner_20120715_113329.jpg

so began the spraying

After seeing how the finish looked with the Dark Khaki I decided to paint the back tailgate bar also.

This is how it came out. You can barely tell I did anything, I love that. The jeep is filthy right now so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the subtlety of the difference. Once I wash the jeep I'll post more pics.

I have been considering this exact thing (fenders only). Can't wait to see how it looks with the clean Jeep and a full body shot.

Great writeup- thx!
