That looks really nice, I have those on my list Your such a good friend to help Dave out, I'm sure he appreciates it


We discovered a leak in the master bath shower, behind the wall (of course) in the kids house.

We didn't renovate the bath's when we did the rest of the house, they need it but we thought we would wait. Well, it looks like the wait will be over soon.

It's a tiled in shower with old, ugly tile that is chipped and some broken so it needs it anyhow. I think we will just gut the entire bath and re-do it, I can't see just doing the shower then going back to do the cabinets and counters.

If it's not one thing, it's ten

I have the same flares and I am currently saving up to buy poison spyder metal flares. For one thing these things are really wide and everytime off road I feel like if I hit something they will just Peel off. I have scratched them a bit and no peelage yet but I'm waiting for the day I do. Just something to keep in mind

The other thing to keep in mind is with any metal fenders, if you hit or scrape something hard enough, the fender may not give and it will push its way into the body panel. I think the rear panels could suffer the most damage. Plastic at least has that give. Most plastic fenders will fold or bend before causing any damage to your rig.

Dave decided on these just because of the ability to flex with a hit. He can replace all 4 for the cost of one metal and body damage

I'll send you a pm if i have any questions. I installed the old seal back to see how the tool worked and it only takes about ten minutes. Thanks.

I've hit and scraped my metal cloak rear fenders pretty hard and i have yet to see any deformation on them, other than the scratches its received.

I'm more concerned with getting him into his car seat in the Jeep. He can't be trusted to climb in on his own, he bales into the driver seat and says, "drive gama." He's a bit of a Jeep-aholic and not even 2 yet
