That is a fine looking machine. I've just started to slowly outfit mine. I've got bumpers, a winch, and some lights...but I can't decide on wheels and tires size. I like the mud (not deep wheeling) and sand. Doing a 3" lift so and suggestions on feet for the 4door??

i have had BFGs, Duratracs, and Toyo MTs... out of the three of them, Toyo Open Country MTs hands down. they shed mud and clay very well on the trail. also do well in the sugar sand down here...

Nice Jeep! What made you pick bed lining over powder coating if you don't mind me asking? I am trying to decide which I want to go with for my rear Genright. Thanks.

this was a decision i struggled with for a while. honestly i though about just rattle canning all of it. initially i had rattle canned the rear bumper. with scratches and stuff from the trail - it's an easy fix..

in the end bedliner won out because (in theory) it's supposed to hold up better than powder coating will. and i like the rough texture look also.

okay some install photos from the PS front flare install. overall a very easy install. took about an hour and a half to remove stock flares, mock up the PS flares, mark holes for drilling, and finish up.

enjoy. questions, ask!

here's the stock flare removed. 6 10mm hex bolts inside the fender well. then gently rip the fender off. use care - the sheet metal isn't too thick and you could easily bend removing the stock ones if you're not careful!

remove the plastic fender clips. there's a special tool, side cutters or dykes work fine. don't cut them... just use them to pry them out...

mock up the PS fender. make sure you leave all the hardware loose (install all of them before tightening any of them)...

Any chance you could get us some pics of the rear bumper and TF carrier? We get a lot of questions on this combination.

Did you Vaseline up those sidewalls to get it in that garage?

3 q's, does the front bumper have recovery points? Its hard to see in the pic and is the grill plasti-dipped? Are the fog lights noticeably better ( I am gonna say yes)

I will say it again, I do like that Jeep.

no. I did have the detail guy at work wash and wax it. he tends to go nuts with sidewall dressing. annoys me but - whatever. it'll be all over the side of the jeep in no time.

yes, front bumper has two recovery points. grill is bedlined. and the lights are way more than noticeably better. they're borderline too bright for the road.

I love them!
