Those are some really nice looking fenders. Probably the nicest I've seen done by an individual that didn't buy them ready to put on!
Kudos to you on the excellent work!

|jerryj||Its a Genright light kit 60$ the front has a rubber bushing that goes through a 3/4" hole the side has a metal bracket that goes under the tube I didnt like it there and mounted it to the tube.You also need a 18$ relay|

Probably not what he has but they are good and what I had on my YJ.

|GriffsTJ||What did you use for leds. My friend and i just made some tube flares and im not finding many lights i like but yours are what i want. Can you take some close ups on how they are mounted? Thanks|

Ok I guess I can just play with the bender until I get a bend I like. The bolting on the rear makes sense and it is pretty thin on the tub. But I'm thinking of doing corner guards so I'll probably just end up welding them on.
|04-24-2012 12:30 AM|
FWIW, they don't really look like a copy of anything.

The front gussets took 3 tries to get a shape i liked and i really liked what I ended up with.I was so proud of my self til I looked at the Poison Spyder sticker on the hood and realized its one of his legs lol.

|aelwero||those front gussets are the bomb did you plan them that way or did they accidentally figure themselves out? One of these days I'll get around to fabbing some JK tubies. One of these days...|

|EMTJEEP||How far did you bend the pipe for going down the side of the fender? The rears looked easy too. Did you weld rear to the tub or did you just bolt it on?|
|04-23-2012 10:56 PM|
|jerryj||It is super easy I formed the tube, cut the fender ,zip tied it to the jeep made a card board templet the hardest part was hooking up the lights.I think it looks awesome leaving the stock fender part.I cant wait to see how many people ask where I got them.The rear was even easier.Im making a sweet set for my friends XJ.|
|04-23-2012 10:24 PM|
That's kind of what I thought. It would be a whole lot easier to just build off of the stock fender.
|04-23-2012 10:20 PM|
|jerryj||I have a JD2 tube bender and notcher they have more then paid for them selves.I will take pictures of the connections and stuff.I left the top of the stock fender underneath the new one so it has the original support and where the front of the fender bolts on i made a gusset and used the same bolts.Leaving the top of the fender helps keep them level and makes it easy to line up the hood latch.on the down part I welded some tabs on and bolted them through the body.The top of the plate is welded to the fender under the hood line which is great for hiding the welds.that tub is thinner than i thought lol|

Mostly the tube fender connecting to the stock fender. Trying to figure out which is the best way to connect the two.
If i sent you my email would you email the pictures of the process?
|04-23-2012 09:06 PM|
|woodsy||Very Nice did you use a bender on the tube portion? Just curious because i am going to be attempting them as well and dont have a bender to use.|
|04-23-2012 07:20 PM|
|jerryj||sure can, any part in particular I'll try to get some more up tomorrow wifey has the good phone so probably not today.Im really bummed I took pictures of the whole process but the computer wont let me upload them for some reason.|
|04-23-2012 06:10 PM|
Thinking of making my own too, just got to get the metal.
Could you take some close up pictures of the fenders?
|04-23-2012 03:32 PM|
|jerryj||Thanks guys she is my baby I got it stock a few years ago and have done every thing my self.I am very happy with how it has turned out so far.All I have left to do is axles and Im working on building a 8.8 now.|
