Rockers and Fender Bolts installed

I love my Bushwacker fenders, but didnt care for the Stainless bolts and washers that came with them. I finally got to replace them with Black bolts and caps today. I like the look much better than the softball size stainless bolts on the side. Well at least they looked softball size to me..

The rocker knocker's got installed today also. The tubing is powder coated and the inserts are painted to match the jeep. The bolts for the inserts were painted also so I didnt have those stainless looking bolts there also.

Lookin so good. Nice rack.... looks like you went with a Garvin. The wind deflector will cut down on the noise if you are interested. Not completely though... if I have tops off, I just crank the stereo

Thanks. yes I love my Garvin. I agree, turn the music up and I hear no wind noise at all..The powder coating on the rockers was done to match the rack as close as we could.I am real pleased with the quality of all the Garvin products I have.

Thumbs up Wow!

One GREAT ride! Love the colors and the imagination that went into the design of your Mods

Thanks to U and Jimbo, I have got to have a rack like that

My wife will have a fit She thinks I lost my mind replacing the "new tires/wheels" and thinks the winch ruined the looks of the Jeep!
Women

The saga continues

Again, GREAT ride.

Trout, gotta ask. Did you paint the garage to match the Jeep? Or buy the Jeep to math the garage?

I guess I painted it to match both my favorite rides.

Thanks Willie. You will need a rack if you put an expedition trip together. I am planning on building an overland trailer this winter to match the jeep. Jimbo has a real nice one.

Thank you all for the support and kind words. Now I am just waiting for my Hood I ordered 10 weeks ago to come in so I can decide what is next.

Troutman, you do no that "Jimbo" is the man I have not only been eyeing his rack, but I do love his trailer

However, after pricing his trailer (new) I about had a heatt attack Great Lord, you can buy a Large "hard-side" trailer for that kind of $$. However, I do realize the one Jimbo has is about "bomb-proof" and 4x4 capable (explains the cost).

I retire April 1, and would like to do a cost to coast, and a Trailer like Jimbo's might fit the bill

The wife would really have a "duck-fit", if I bougt a $13K trailer, small enough to park in our bathroom

OH! Again your ride/s are Awesome!

You will just have to take your wife along on your trip and she will learn to appreciate your nice trailer.

I am not retired yet so I cannot do an entire cross country trip, but I envy you. I can do a week or 2 at a time. You should try to make a plan to come East for a week this coming summer. We can do a Trout Safari thru the North woods of NH and Maine. There are Thousands of miles of backcountry with many roads and paths less traveled. Nothing like a brook trout Breakfast to start a great day of exploring.

I spent over 20 years going to Africa on safari. The rigs and small camper trailers that we used over there 25 years ago are only starting to catch on here. Its all about the adventure.

I have not made a final decision yet, but I believe my starting base trailer will be a sierra. I plan on putting a tent on top of the trailer so I can still carry my Kayak on my garvin. I am also having a custom rod rack built for the top for the fly rods.

Its going to be a busy winter preparing for another grand Trout Safari season!
