@Keralec I was planning on adding Crawler conceptz or JCR fenders, and when i went to purchase the flares, my shop had Nemesis fenders in stock and had me compare them to the CC in terms of weight. that alone made me switch to aluminum fenders. The nemesis was out of my price range so i went with PS aluminums. Nemesis are still my favorite fenders.

Are you planning on a tire carrier for a spare 37? Your jeep looks amazing. What a major difference.

Yeah Dwight the nemesis hurt the bank account a lot but I got a deal on them since they're close to me and I'll be picking them up in person... Plus I've seen them around and I just love the style!

Did custom exhaust... Sounds like a full cat-back system from magnaflow but without the price tag! Cost about $50 and took less than an hour to install! Just a Thrush welded muffler, flexible pipe, connector and clamps
First thing I removed the stock muffler and resonator!
Next put the thrush muffler where the cat was and kept the factory pipes back to the axle... Using the flexible pipe I bended it to go from the muffler to the cat since it wasn't strait on because I had the muffler out hook straight into the factory pipe back!
Last was clamp everything and make a few custom brackets to hold everything!
Hopes this was clear enough if anyone wants to try to! Cheap great sounding exhaust!

Made a custom cargo restraint thing on top of my sub box out of pvc! Just pieced together some pvc pipe, painted and used caps to attach to sub box! Total cost about $5 since I had a bunch of pvc laying around.

Might be one of the last posts... Clutch is completely dead and possibly other parts is what I'm being told. Can't put it into any gear no matter what, the engine just Revs as if it's in neutral! Just had gearing put in and now this happens...just getting to painful and expensive

Sorry to hear this! I hope you get it sorted soon.

It is but I feel better having a aftermarket clutch since the 37's wear out the stock one pretty fast is what ive heard... But not as fast as it did on mine, I guess mine was super weak or something. I would just feel more comfortable with a higher end one, so I don't get stuck somewhere!

Glad to hear you're driving your Jeep again. There might be a slight break-in period with the new clutch? Don't worry about it, just drive it. Is the pedal feel much different than stock?

I actually don't feel any difference! Maybe a bit stiffer but that may be because it's brand new... And yes the more I drive it the more it seems to warm up and feel smoother! Plus I'm getting less paranoid! Driving a normal car for almost 3 weeks will make you forget about how different a lifted Jeep is!

Never posted this... Thought I did but the reason for 3 weeks alway was first because of gearing and having the gearing companies mess up and send only half of he stuff so that took 2 weeks to do! And then the clutch went out almost immediately for about a week! Got to drive a norms car though and got pretty use it it... But still loving the Jeep!

Looks Great Keralec!

I just bought a 14 Polar Edition Hydro Blue and have my eyes on the Nemesis fenders as well! I was considering having them color matched to the blue.

Love the rims! I want to get the Method double standard black but this makes me look at the gray ones a little more!
