Haha, yea...I started building her in late April - early May. I stated a build thread and posted the first picture and a wish list...but then school course load got heavy, work full time, AF Reserve gig...blah blah blah. Life got in the way of me posting her progress, but she is almost to a point I can leave her alone while the checking account has a chance to replenish.

Yea, I really like the ACE narrow fenders. I have all ACE products - fenders, front stubby with stinger, rock rails, rear bumper with tire carrier, tramp stamp, and I have their decals all over my JK bc I am one of their 'sponsored' JKs. They make amazing products!
