C'mon Wade, you know you want to pull that trigger

The first cut was definitely painful, kind of like the first 17/32" hole that went into the tub But after that, I was almost looking around for things to cut

I dont plan on running tube fenders that way if at all. But if i were to do it like that my isolation would be a mastercraft suspension seat. If anything i would run AEV highlines. I dont wheel in places like you do, and im to worried about messing up my jeep to bounce my fender off something(still owe 15,600 on it)

I got some money to spend in other area's first (35" Tires/Rear Bumper/TireCarrier/Tub Rails, and then the rockers I suppose), so I have some time to work my self up to it...

The corners and rocker bases were either anodized or powder coated. It looks great but to the average person it looks like a stock Jeep.

What windows do you have?

Yeah, I can see leaving them unpainted for selling puposes but I would want my jeep to appear fairly stock if I had armor

I have the windows that have the diagonal split in them

Here is the JK Hi Pinion D44 front axle that will be going in the LJ. Also the Reid Racing JK Knuckles. Ultimately, I don't know how the steering and brakes are going to shake out but I think Blaine has a pretty good handle on them.

Gerald, you spoke earlier of selling this Jeep eventually correct? I think it would be a better idea to donate it for a JF giveaway!

Looks good!

How are you going to address the weak tubes and inner C's?
