Welcome aboard. Looks like you have a nice little list of goodies there.

I've seen your rig over at JU. Looks really nice.

BTW - I have some factory fenders for sale.

How much? What color?

You implying you don't like my cosmetic saggy fender? hehehe

stupid trees just jumped out and got me. Then flopping it in August didn't help.

Oh yeah, I have a ZJ V8 tie rod ready to go in, a new JKS rear adj trackbar ready to go in, and I'll be doing a 2nd 3 switch bezel setup in the center stack (following this writeup: http://home.comcast.net/~tjdreams/MyJeep.html )

Waiting to hear back from Geeps about some Contura switches to line everything up and look all clean.

Well it does give it some character.

They're light khaki and they came off of my 03 Rubicon. I have no idea what they're worth?!?! I was planning on taking my pile of parts and putting it up for sale in the next month or so. If you're really interested in the fenders I can take some pics of them and send them to you. Then we could work a fair price.

My idea of a fair price is going to be higher than what my wife is willing to let me spend on a new set of fenders. She figures why buy em when I'm likely to screw em up again. I want TNT Customs with flare, but that ain't happening any time soon. hehe

I wouldn't mind seeing some pics when you get some.

That's what I replaced my factory one's with. The TnT's are nice!

Yeah, I'll take some pics of them in the next couple of days and PM you.

That pic was taken at Summertown, TN. It has really gotten to be more of a challenge as they build more trails/obstacles. I think they had a total of 15,000 rigs there (heard from a friend of the owner) over New Years. With the prices they charged that weekend, they did pretty darn good. hehe

Welcome. I grew up about 60 miles away from you in Florence. Mom and Dad still there. I come down several times a year.
