Sorry this post isn't the install of the Poison Spyder narrow fenders but I wanted to update you on some goodies I got.

Hi Lift Jack:



Also got the Hi Lift Mount for the Teraflex carrier and I mounted it up but have yet to install the Hi-Lift on it. Also undecided on if I like how the light is mounted and obviously need to paint this silver hardware:

More goodies eh' .Can you fab up a pedestal off the Teraflex swing arm to raise the location and maybe center the light a bit ?

Oh, and when are the fenders going on?

How is your paint job on the bumper holding up?

I've been procrastinating the fenders because of the amount of time I hear it takes for the install and after reading some of the instructions I'm less than thrilled to install them but more than thrilled to see them installed

It has held up really well, bashed it a couple times on my last off road trip so will definitely need to touch it up but I'm pretty impressed with the coating. I am very unimpressed with the cans themselves and how much they clog though.

BIG THANKS TO QUADRATEC.COM AND FACTOR 55!!!!

Just a quick update for you all. I got really lucky and won the contest through Quadratec on their Facebook page for some Factor 55 goodies! I got to choose between a ProLink loaded or the new FlatLink. Also it included their a Hitchlink, their beefy aluminum hawse fairlead, 2 Winch Locks, and some stickers! Here you go:



I went with the ProLink loaded:






Install was a breeze and I can't say enough good things when it comes to the quality and the craftsmanship of these products. I can't wait to use them now.
