Rolling on a 50% used spare with 3x 5% used tires is a really bad idea...

Picked up a spare wheel so I can get the JK on the two car trailer

Swapping tires at the trail is annoying

Threw on some Bushwacker fenders flares. I gotta say, they could do a better job with the instructions. I mean, they are concise but there are some points they left out. Sorry I don't have the technical skills to do a write up. Just let me make a few points.
A: Be sure to trim the splash guards about 1/8" from flush to the fenders. Better to leave too much than not enough.
B: Insert all of the speed clips and trim away the extra plastic from the pan head screw holes in preparation before you start the install.
C: There are no washers for the side marker bolts. A better solution would be a snug threaded screw. Be sure to check that the side markers light up before you tuck the wiring away.
Other than that, the instructions are in b&w but the color ones online are easier for reference.
Here's the Pics!

Actually had a removeable faceplate last time. didnt remove it as I parked in a badge access only parking garage at work and felt safe and comfortable I must say in the last few years. The irony.... I work for a car insurance company. Damn theives! No guarantee they did work there, but likely. The faceplate will go in the office with me now.

These are from a couple years ago, but I cut on the black line, filled the gap with putty, and painted with enamel. A large rubber mallet will work to fold the point over, as well.

Hey BaddAndy,

Where did you get your leather steering wheel wrap?

Thanks!
