Yeah, but in order for it to clear I would have to shave it down almost to stock thickness, and at that point I would be afraid of grinding through the diff cover. I'm actually thinking of going with a Currie diff cover for the front. It would give me the protection I need on the bottom and the clearance I need on the top. Plus I would get to rock another awesome Currie product.

Props to you and your pops it looks great.
I'm hoping to get metal cloaks in the next year after I finish up other things on my to-do list that are more important first.

Thanks!

I wouldn't call MetalCloaks unimportant at all. They were one of the first mods I did and to this day it is still #3 on my favorite mods list (coming after my tummy tucker and my *free* rubi axles). I absolutely love these fenders. Yeah, they were pricey, but I would buy them again in a heartbeat if I had too.

Well, since I won't be going back to Coal Creek untill January 2012, I decided I should go ahead and mount up my 35" BFG Mall Terrains.

Before:

After:

I'm not a big fan of the polished aluminum rims, but they look a lot better on there than I expected them too. I still like my Ions WAY better though. I'd rather wear out the Mall Terrains than the MTZs though.

Within the next couple of days I will be giving the Jeep a thorough cleanup inside and out from the last several offroad trips, then I'm gonna throw on the hardtop and full doors. Wheeling season is over for me this year.

Oh, and that second picture I posted has a teaser in it for an upcoming project.

Small update.

Back when I had my Rough Country lift my Jeep was a total squeak fest. Since replacing everything it has been squeak free... almost. One squeak persisted, and without the 20 other squeaks drowning it out, it was really getting on my nerves. I determined that it was coming from the front end, as I could make it squeak just by kicking the front tires. I crawled up under it, but determined that it wasn't any of the joints on the axle. Well, after tinkering for a good 20 minutes, I finally discovered it is my driver's side motor mount. Not sure why it is squeaking, but a healthy dose of WD-40 shut it right up! I am now totally squeak free!

Why is wheeling season over for you. Snow wheeling is the best. You should just go out to Uwharrie for some good runs and go camping.

Snow is rare around here, plus URE is closed from December 15 - April 1. URE is so easy and boring for me it is hard to have a "good run."

Oh ok. DIdnt know they closed. Its not about difficulty its about being outdoors and having fun showing off. They also have Badin Lake to camp around and fish. Doesn URE have 4wheeler trails too. You should buy one of those.

Its not just because they are easy. I have done the trails there so many times that I can almost do them in my sleep. If they had more than like 15 miles of trail that might would be a different story. Camping, fishing, and 4wheeling are not hobbies of mine. The Jeep trails and 4wheeler trails are the same trails at URE.

Thanks!

I've never really cared for the arched MetalCloaks. I thought they were absolutely atrocious the first time I saw them, but they have grown on me a little bit. I still would never put them on my own Jeep, but they look okay. It was love at first sight with the overlines though. Back when I was rebuilding this Jeep, for months I had been trying to decide between the AEV and Rokmen highlines, then I discovered MetalCloaks on this forum one day, and within a week or two I ordered them. I haven't regretted it even once.
