You could also do what i did and install JK turn signals in the front grill if you didnt want to have them mounted into the tube fenders.
That's what I'm doing. But here in Texas I also have to have one you can see from the side so I gotta come up with something there

Got front and rear bumpers installed and new (to me) winch installed. Amazon is late with fairlead so didn't get it installed yet.

Not too bad for 600 bucks all said and done.

That's why I am doing the three small ones in the tubes.

You have to use adapters to fit JK wheels on a TJ.

Thanks!

I still have the poison spider negative fenders, OR-Fab tire carrier, winch and plate and new brakes all waiting to be installed.

I think I'm most excited about the fenders, just not sure if I should bedline them or paint them silver.

And yes adapters were needed for the wheels.

Not exactly completed today but in the past few weeks. Had the rotting body mount support channels cut out and repair sections welded in place on both sides. Parts fabricated at Classic Enterprises. Replaced all body mounts during this process with a poly material. Zone 3" suspension lift with 1.25 body and motor lift. Installed 17" VTec Wheels and 33x12.50 Peak All Terrains. (Thanks KrawlWorks) I couldn't find a similar before picture but you get the idea.

Thanks man! I'm pretty sure its about a 3 in Rancho lift from the PO and I put a 2 inch coil spacer on the front to level it out once I removed the rear tire. And the tires are 33 bfg a/t

Well she pulls a gooseneck 3 horse trailer with living quarters behind her parents cummins all the time. And pulls it well. And her dad is a jeep freak. Just sold his YJ though, she used to steal that from him every chance she got. I trust her. If I have to worry about anything, it's the fact that she helped me install my winch this week and I bet she's gonna find an excuse to use it.

Or, I come back and it's been washed, but that's probably just wishful thinking.

Went to go get my tire patched, as I had some sort of nail/ screw in it, at Walmart.

I drop it off and tell them I will be back to pick it up later because I had errands to run. I come back, 3 hours later and the tire still wasn't done.

I walk inside and ask what the problem was and one of the assistants told me that a lug nut of mine was rounded off.. I told her, no ma'am, i had lost that lug nut and replaced it with a size smaller. As soon as I finished speaking, this rude woman decided to yell out "No, ya lug nut is rounded off."

So, I said thanks, went home, put the STOCK tire iron on the replaced lug nut which was NOT rounded off, and swapped it onto the back wheel and put a new lug nut from the back wheel onto the front. Problem solved right? I wish.

I brought it back to Walmart and asked them if they could patch it now. I got a no. The reason? That ass hole "tech" already declined the job because of the "rounded off" nut and the other guy working in the shop wouldn't go behind her back and do the job after she declined it. Remember, this is AFTER I already swapped the lug nut so there was absolutely nothing wrong with the tire. I asked why she couldn't go back out there and look at the tire and see that I put a new lug in there, and he gave me the same answer as above.

So what did I have to do to get the tire patched? I had to take the damn thing off myself in the parking lot. And roll it up there. Shit, I thought I was getting a deal for a $10 patch and plug. Never again.
