Metal cloak stretch corners (YJ)

Set #1 is here. There are the very first set of full corners for a rear stretched wheel base YJ from metal cloak. I'll be doing a full write up and photos during the install. any questions ask before the weekend.

Hurry up and get those bad boys on. I love your front fenders(on my list). Looking forward to seeing those on as well.

After getting the pass side test fit I traced out the metal that needed to be cut and hit it with a cut off wheel.






I also had to pull off my warn sliders to git the new corners. I'll be hacking the sliders up and putting them back on


After drilling about 30 holes into the tub I got the corner and rub rail bolted in place and tighten down

thank you. install is a lot more involoved then doing their front fenders or a set of their normal rear corners. Also being the first set I've learned quite few things that should be in an updated instruction package

I've got about 7 hours in the install for one side. A good part of that is making notes for metal cloak to update and taking photos. along with the prep for the paint. Once the directions are updated and honed a little I see no reason why a DIYer cant do it in 8 hours for both sides plus a little paint prep time. if you add a second person it would go a hell of a lot faster. Its really hard to line up the corner alone

5in BDS springs. for me they have way too much arch so they don't move very well and are very stiff on the trail. so i want packs that dont have quite as much arch to them
