Found some used Smittybuilt tube fenders (with the inners) so I'll be putting them on soon after I weld the flares.




This is the look I want....

Looks great. One thing...is that front plate on your stinger going to chew up your winch rope? It looks like the winch rope will contact that plate before it's limited by the fairlead.

If I were you, I'd mount that fairlead on to that stinger plate before you ruin that rope on your first pull.

Yeah, thanks for the comment but just ordered another fairlead for the front.

Did a little bit of cosmetic on the axles (4.10). They will be on the YJ this weekend.

Well now I got lucky, just found a set of axles for my Jeep. Front Dana 30 4.56 w/Aussie locker installed and a Ford 8.8 L/S 4.56 all complete with brake lines and everything. The only problem is that them were set up for a SOA instead of SUA so I have to cut the perches and weld them for SUA. SO HAPPY.....


Ford 8.8

Dana 30
