Do you have pictures of this?

DOM tubing and 1/8" plate steel. It's a kit by Poison Spyder that welds to the Rubi rails.

Got the welding finished and painted them.

CowboyJeepFan Daughter came home from Florida. I took back the tail light guards I put on the last time she was home. But I did put 18" Sahara wheels and tires on her Sport in return. Had a guy waiting for the 17" wheels. He is going to paint them black.

This is a very cool idea. I will be interested to hear how it works for you.

pfunkyfize Installed anti-flicker harnesses for my JW Speaker 8700 Evolution headlights on 'Svetlana'. Intense white light with a rapid strobe effect is now fixed and having epileptic seizures behind the wheel will now be a thing of the past. That's a good thing...

Got my new black satin finish steel rear bumper, Airaid inatke system and black Gibson dual exit muffler in the mail yesterday. Will be putting those on post haste.

Viciousjay Got some precut 3M tint, rugged handles, phone window mount, oil change, shortened antenna.

Now I'm debating custom exhaust with a FLO-Pro Muffler

To get them off you need to UN do all bolts & nuts and pull the plastic pins in the back. Then grab fenders and lift up while rocking back and forth. The clips on top slide up into the fender so they lift off. If you plan on doing this you will want to order new clips and plastic pins. 1st. You will break about half of them. I can give you the part numbers if needed. About $6 for 25 on Amazon per each type.

Crso8541 I changed my sound bar and dash speakers out. Anyone thinking of doing this, start with the dash. It took about 2 hrs to get it in. Sound bar is a breeze.
