New parts for my tj :)

Some of the parts are still waiting to b installed, others have been on for a month or so and well tested but I figured I'd post up my stuff and help put a good word out for the companies that gave me great customer service and quality parts.

First up is my undercover fab works tummy tuck. It's been on the longest. I got the 1/4" for the cost of the 3/16 (stock is 1/8) to my door and it is the ultra high clearance. Caused minor binding in the shift linkage but doable and a decent rear d shaft vibe at 35 mph. All around it's a good quality built n America part and i highly recommend it.

Because of the binding and vibes I ordered a Novak shifter cable (not installed) and a RR sye and cv driveshaft from ballistic jeep. They have good customer service and a life time on the tubing and welds. The RR sye is decent but I'm not the only one having leak issues with the rear seal. In all honesty I'd spend the extra money for a jb convertions sye and Tom woods d shaft. I ordered some currie double adjustable upper control arms to set my pinion angle and a currie adjustable track bar to cure binding n the track bar. It's still leaning against the wall n my garage....

Finally broke down and bought a new top. Decided on a rampage frameless and a smittybilt no drill header and rear tailgate bar with a cover. It's not EASY to put up and take down but it's not hard. Could b better quality windows but all around I like it and it was for a fair price

Next came my undercover fab oil pan skid. It goes all the way from the t case skid to the front of the oil pan, mounting at the motor mounts. Very high quality and very strong. Matt over at undercover fab makes very nice products and will do anything to help out his customers.

Last thing and by far my biggest project is a set of Metalcloak over line fenders. First impressions when they arrived was they took good care in packaging them. They arrived in 2 separate boxes with plenty of bubble wrap and well labeled. I was missing the promised t shirt and the small bottle of anti seize for the stainless hardware but no big deal. I first started out with a 400 grit sandpaper over the entire fender followed by some acetone and tack cloth to pick up any traces of was or oils. I decided to use rustolium self etching primer and their fine textured black paint. I used about a can and a half of primer on one fender doing 3 light coats that turned out beautiful with 3 decent coats of the black textured and it seams to b very tough and will b easy to touch up. Now the access panel covers I did I neat trick by painting the opposite (mirrored) sides opposite colors. One chrysler red to match my jeep and the other textured black to match the fenders. By painting these like this all I have to do is switch the side it is on for the other color. In the 2 pictures that is the same fender with the 2 different covers. The set came with some very nice aluminum inner fenders and I added the LED light kit which requires a new relay or they will flash fast like a bulb is out

This is as far as I've got and I'll get pics of some of the parts loaded up here later that I do not have saved on my phone. Feel free to ask questions. I can give links, numbers to shops, or prices to any of the parts here

the fenders are amazing and well worth the money they can barely clear 35s with no lift too! Good to see the fellow jeeper supporting quality American made products though

Seriously? Don't post next time. This forum is for people sharing what they are doing to their Jeep.

Did you get the LO-PRO mount with that skid?

I wasn't gonna say anything cuz it wouldn't have been as modest as how you put it haha. The pustang avitar is what really got me =p

But anyways, I'm using a polyurethane transmission mount from 4wd hardware. To clear the skid I installed a rough country 1.25 bl last summer. The bl, mount , and skid went in very smoothly and that combo is doable with the stock shifter linkage and rear drive shaft but I figured what the hell lol
