Thats his rig he's using to mount my fenders and make the hood on and in the meantime I got the rear frame welded up, coil buckets are set and the control arms are done. Couple slight issues however...first off I made the upper arms too long so Ill have to cut them and either use a slug to attach the arm together again or try cutting off the bung on one end and then shorter then arm and reweld the bung.

Second issue is with shocks. The first pic shows how the shocks currently mount which only allows them to be mounted completely vertical. The problem with that is my genright tank mounts directly in the location the shock would need to be. The plan is to cut the end off my lower shock mount, drill a cross hole through and mount them in the opposite direction so I can freely angle the body of the shock further back on the frame. Hope that makes sense.



Frame welded up



I did get to do some of my first welds which came out pretty well. The majority of the welding my buddy did while I was occupied with other stuff.

Final money shot. Springs arent in and the tire is just mocked in place not actually mounted.

Those look sweet!
If you don't mind me asking, how much did they run you? I'm in the market for some new fenders and I'm trying to find some for a good price.

Check out poison spiders site. I think they were around $550 for the fenders alone and then I purchased the inner fender kit as well.

What did you use to prime and paint your bumpers and all that? How has the paint been holding up to wheeling? Awesome build by the way.

The front bumper I used etching metal primer and then top coated with body match brand graphite grey spray paint and the rear bumper and sliders I used vht epoxy spray paint from advanced auto. The vht is great and very durable but any rock rash I just touch back up. The front has held up great.

Thanks for the compliment

The jeep drove home great, very smooth no vibes or anything so thus far Im very happy.
Parts came out AAmazing and I freakin love these PSC fenders.
Took a few pics.


Havent seen this site in over 4 months

I did have a slight issue initially with the gas tank not registering how much gas I had and instead showing completely empty with the light on but by the time I got home it kicked back to normal and the gas gauge works again.

Inner fenders

First pics from the new Canon Rebel t3i! Excuse the lack of hood pins and few other items in these pics









Got a few little things done last night:
Installed the hood pins and front signal lights

Rewired my CB to the battery and installed the PSC fender vents

Also was able to mess with the mounting point of my CB antenna, remount my windshield frame armor, and retighten all the jam nuts on my CAs.
