Yeah, I was. I meant to get a pic in the same place connected the way out, but it's supposed to start snowing, so I wanted to get out of there before it got bad.

Wyoming's about as good as it gets. I've lived in 5 different states so far and I could see me staying here.

So today I was washing the Jeep...taking my time enjoying the superb sunshine and warm weather. Wash, wax, the works (still need to hit the inside, the girlfriend keeps complaining about getting mud on her clothes). No matter what I did every time I would walk around the front end, there would be mud on the bumper from dripping out of the fender. So I sprayed and sprayed and sprayed. There's just too much junk going on up there to get all the dirt and mud out. So I thought, "Hey, I'll take the liners out and there won't be as many crevasses." So I got to it. The liner came out just find, but then I thought, there's still too much under there. So I decided that I didn't need that frame thing under the actual fender. I started unbolting and pulling and all the sudden, the fender just starts coming off. I figure, "What the hell. Premo's looks BA, I'll try it."

So I am now running fenderless on the front end. The rears may come off later.





I think it looks good. I think it'll be easier to clean in the wheel wells at least. And I'm okay with the throwing of more water/mud on the side. I usually hit it with the pressure washer after every outing anyways.

Nice I like that look without fenders. What about cutting the bumper to make it flush in the front??

You never did let me know if you had rubbing from those tires at full turn.

I'm still trying to find them, having lots o' difficulty.

I'm debating with the bumper chop. I might just take the plastic off and see how I like it with just the metal underneath.


No, not any rubbing while turning. I had some rubbing at full articulation.

Try 4wheelparts.com for the tires. I don't know if they'll have the Procomps in stock. They were sold out of the 16x8's when I ordered (and weren't supposed to get any till June), so they gave me the 16x10's.

Don't want to hijack WVU's thread, but I ordered the exact same wheels and tires today except mine are the 16x8's. I had to get them from 2 different sources so they won't come mounted and balanced, but oh well.

Also going to go with the 2.5" RC lift and a 1.25" body lift.

First trip out with the new setup will be June 19th at the Badlands in Indiana. Can't wait.

And yes, I'll get pics up when it all arrives.

Sweet build so far. I like the no fenders, you should fab up some flat fenders.

Most recently I took some time to paint my exhaust and front bumper.

Here's a before for the bumper (well sort of). I got started, then thought I should take a picture.



And after:




All I have is an after for the exhaust (sorry, I forgot).

I picked up a trucker side view mirror bar clamp thing at a truck stop, used half to mount it with one of the bolts from the stock tire carrier.

You could always do this.





The smittybilt XRC Fenders offer alot more protection and still give the slim look of running no flares at all. Kind of a pain in the a$$ to install but well worth it IMHO. Just put these on a buddies JK this weekend.

You got that?............ Good!

The metal bumper under the plastic piece actually looks pretty good ala carte. Just need to cut off those stupid crush cans.

WVU, Edwards has got the right idea up there...I love those fenders, and we know you're not as daft his buddy to add those god awful wheels and chrome grille - they would look killer on your rig (the fenders, not the bling bling ).

I haven't been able to determine whether they're $500/fender, or per pair (front/rear), but I think it's per fender

Actually the grill is copper clad... The owner hapens to be a big wig at a big copper company. as for the wheels.... lol he drives it offroad like he stole it though, so i give him a pass on the wheels. All prices are for the pair. just be ready to drill alot of holes in the body. I think it was 7 holes per side on the rears and maybe just 2 per side on the fronts..

You got that?............ Good!
