Just out of curiosity, are you going to move the bottom axle shock mount up too?
Helps clean up "grabber" things hanging below the axle.

Probably going this route. I ain't as skilled or at least not as trusting as holding it in place manually while tacking with the free hand.

I was just wondering if they would hold... the hoops are imbalanced unevenly and hold some weight.

they come with the braces. I see no way of getting them welded with any confidence without pulling the fender inners. with all the crap i got mounted to them, i am gonna install without them and see how that goes initially.

SHould be fine for the 5 months until the jeep is retired from daily duties, then i can get them done properly with all the down time in the world.

Life's been busy.

Still awaiting a good, free saturday to rent the welder and burn my new mounts in.

But as noted above, I went with the trail gear hoops. Where I am located... they were only a minuscule amount more. Plus they do add an element of mall crawler fashion... which is very important to me.

I like my Trail Gear hoops. I didn’t put the stiffening tubes in but probably should have.

alright.

yup, bringing it back for future users.

i got the old shock towers cut off and most of the frame wall ground down... i was toying with the trail gear hoops in terms of fitment/placement. It gets might tight up there.

Essentially, to be safe, it seems the bottom most edge of the frame is where the lower most weld has to go in order to fit them in... anybody else find this? Did any of you massage the inner fender with a BFH or what?

(i do have a 1" body lift as well).

I think I was about dead center. But that’s with a 1” body lift and metal cloak fenders. I pushed them up till they touched.

metal cloaks would provide that extra space for sure.

BFH it is i guess. (it's cheaper)

I went on top of the frame (different hoops) and trimmed the inner fender a bit to get some height but only because I'm using air shocks... When I ran the ford towers I just butted them up to the underside of the fender...
