Pizzaman Miles2Go, you got a pic of that? What I like about this forum is the ideas that get bounced around. "Thunderdome" LOL, Love that movie.

Eat More Pizza, I need a tune-up!

Miles2Go and by the way..

there is nothing magical about the intake tube. make your own out of 2.5" exhaust. works just as good for about $20. i went to the junk yard and for next to nothing got a few rubber elbows from different model cars. i used a 90 degree rubber elbow to come directly off the throttle body then the exhaust pipe, cut to size into the elbow and then the filter.

Miles2Go i would think that painting them would just make the scratchs stand out all the more.

i actually got tired of slinging mud into the cab when the top was down or window down. i also didn't want to spend the $325 for decent flares. a store called 'northern tool' has 10" wide boat trailer fenders - i got the diamond plate ones. for less then $150 i got 2 for the rear and one long one that i cut in half for both fronts.. just need to add a little mud flap and i am all set.

they cover the 35-12.50's pretty well.. just have to get over the slight 'mad max' look.

khenderson can always route your air intake into the cab of the jeep!! that'll make sure it won't suck in water.

Airaid Spacer

THE AIRRAID SPACER WORK GOOD. DEFINITLEY NOTICED A INCREASE IN POWER. I THEN PUT ON A K&N FILTER FOR THE STOCK AIR BOX AND EVEN NOTICED A GREATER INCREASE. BEEN THINKING ABOUT GETTING THE K&N FIPK KIT, BUT NOT TO SURE YET, I STILL HAVE A FEW CONCERNS. LIKE WATER BEEING SUCKED IN, BUT STILL WOULD LIKE 2 GET RID OF THE STOCK BOX ANYONE WITH ANY IDEAS?

Krylon Fusion one year ago. I took mine off, others just loosen them and slide the paper behind them.

fender flares

Thanks For The Advice. I Was Going To Paint Them Originally, But Wanted To Remove Them First To Avoid Overspray.

4Jeepn Or a heat gun works too.. but paint is so much faster....

khenderson i would say paint them. mine are grey from fading and i just haven't gotten around to painting them. the best product i've heard of for it is krylon fusion, i believe. tape it all off and spray them black and all will be right in the world once again!

fender flares

I have a 01 tj i bought used and the fender flares are gray for some reason i think someone waxed them or its from the sun. I noticed that when offroading they'll get scratched and that they're black underneath. is there any way to get this gray stuff off easy or do you just have to scrape them. I'd aprecciate any helpful ideas.
