Randy Perry's first time on the Rubicon. He drove the Test Mule as we couldn't get his TJ done in time for him to have a good time. I was worried he'd have a problem and it just wasn't sitting right with me. Randy works with me so was no problem at all. They drove to the to the Rubicon and back around 500 miles each way. Only a couple of scratches on the rear bumper was all he could do.

The slide show is done well. Enjoy!

Finally got around to installing the Metalcloak rear flares. Really easy to put on. Just need to drill six holes.

Just need to powder coat.

They are easy right?

The whole system really is. You get it in a hundred boxes and open it up and its so many parts it looks so daunting to the amateur.

However the reality is, is that it is SUPER simple to go together. With a good 3/8 air ratchet I can do a full set of MC front and rear fenders with lights by myself in about three hours.


Once you get the front done, which is 90% of the work, your like "ok here we go for two hours plus on the rear". Then 20 min later your thinking "did I miss something or am I done"??

I don't thnk so as they fit 37s now. I was looking at that as well. Once I get the flares powder coated I'll see if I need to do something.

Thanks,

Gerald

Metalcloaks overlies don't look too bad. They're making me rethink my decision about them. The test mule is looking great!

So you aren't attaching the ends of the rear flares?

The 4" wide flares look a million times better than 6". That's what makes them look so smooth. 6" on the arch fenders is ok on the front, but thats it.

I personally wish MC would come out with a rear flare that doesn't taper in the front and rear of the flare.

After powder coating I'll put the bolts in. They are thru bolted with plates on the inside. I don't use the piece Metalcloak gave me as it is heavy!

It is a much cleaner install but you have to have full corner armor to do it this way.

You are just going to put the bolts in the ends with a nut without going through the tub right? Like how they do the rockers? I'm looking at some options for the rear of mine right now. I'm definitely going back Metalcloak aluminum on the front, but I'm thinking about doing something different on the rear. I love being able to easily remove the flare, but I'm beginning to dislike the taper of the rear flare. I think it won't bother me so bad with the 4" though.

For us in the west were we get little weather, the tapers work for me. However, if I saw weather I'd probably go with something else as well. 4" flares are a little big for my taste.

Yes, bolts with aluminum backing plates that I made for the ends.

The look of the tapers is what I don't like. They work pretty decent I'm the rain. I don't mud, ever.

Thanks for all the help.

If you want to trade up to 4" springs let me know. I'll be able to take those 3" springs back and offer them to someone else.

No problem!

Thanks,

Gerald
