I think those are trimmed stock fenders with added trim along the edge.

BTW, you did a nice job on them Sushi

Sucker Punch is right. I cut the fenders myself using a reciprocating saw, dremel, and 100 grit sandpaper. I have a super discerning eye and sadly am super anal. I think it turned out really good. Not spectacular, but definitely pleased with the results. Now that I have one under my belt, I feel confident if someone else wanted them done I could knock it out of the park.

Been super busy, but have done stereo and amp install,and finally got my mats from Qtec! I am now being a responsible college student and paying down/ off my remaining balance on my CC, before I pay to lift the Grangler. I really want to do the lift, but I know if I pay off debt now, I'll be better off in the long run. Being responsible is no fun some times.

Just ordered the teraflex hd tire carrier and adjustable mount. I could not decide on a rear bumper and tire carrier combo so I'm gonna start with this.

I did order the smittybilt oversized carrier, but I am going to return it. Really don't want to risk damaging the hinges on the tailgate.

I ordered them, but actually just switched to some 35's.

I use to live in Braemar. Great little area if you don't mind a bit of a commute.

Nice, if I ever come up with some sort of name for my Jeep that would be a nice touch.

Is it Sunday yet?

Sahara delete and custom Wrangler decal that will match my Sahara hood decal that is going on my new hood. Color was listed as matte black and silver outline, I would say it is a cross between matte and gloss.

I like it. Which hood are you getting? Make sure you post pics with the new hood and decal.

Already have it. Just no time to paint it. It is the OEM "heat extractor" hood, or Rubicon X hood. Different descriptions, same hood. I was "pleasantly" surprised to get one shipped to me for $675. I plan to fill the rubber bumper and latch holes. I never see me lowering my windshield, too involved... Top OK, doors OK. Windshield, well, I will skip that one.

Yep! Counting down the hours!

I got my spare tire off and I am trying to wait patiently for the FedEx guy to show up with my teraflex HD hinge and adjustable bracket. It is scheduled for delivery today, but still hasn't shown up... I was hoping to get the new spare mounted today. May have to wait until tomorrow. Can't wait for Sunday.

Congrats jrockne. Let the fun begin!

Found time to get the teraflex hd hinge and adjustable tire carrier hooked up this afternoon. I'm really happy with it.



Everything is loaded in the Jeep and ready for tomorrow! Can't wait!
