Finally installed my T&T fenders and corner armor what a nightmare!

The TNT parts were perfect. I couldn't be happier with T&T Custom :thumb:. The nightmare was removing the torx bolts and drilling out all the bolts I broke :banghead:. I found things in my Jeep that I didn't know existed. Can anyone tell me why there is a switch underneath the battery? It is attached to the battery tray. Did all Wranglers come with two battery trays? Mine apparently did :D.

Today I picked up the small bullet style turnsignal for the front fenders:dance:. Can't wait for them to roll in. I am stilling running around with my original battery. I haven't opted for an Optima battery yet. My snorkel is currently removed. That will have to wait a few more days before I get around to reinstalling it. I am not sure to reuse the Rock River Snorkel or swap it out for another snorkel I have lying around the garage. T&T Custom doesn't lie about how easy it is to install. Installing them took only minutes. The toughest part is removing the original fender. I broke about 4 bolts:banghead:

You'll be even happier with them when you actually put them to use. These fenders stand up to some pretty hardcore damage.

How'd all the underhood relocation go?

True so true! Unlike most owners of these fenders I will be using mine in the real jungle.


As to relocating what was original underneath the hood, no problems arouse. It was very easy to figure out. Like I mentioned previously the hardest part was removing the original equipment and those damn Torx Bolts:banghead:.

I believe that I read somewhere that is a battery temperature sensor.

That mega phone is my alarm siren. It is called the white siren. It is extremely loud :dance:. I can hear it clearly a block away :hide:.

I heard the same thing but I don't buy that story. I don't see why it would need it. The alternator should pump out the same voltage no matter what happens.

Here is a photo of how to relocate the factory air cleaner. You don't have to replace the factory air cleaner (if you don' t have airconditioning in your Jeep). All you have to do is relocate it to the edge of the fender. I bolted mine there.

Some people have had problems reinstalling their windshield wiper fluid reservoir. This is what you have to do to it for it to fit properly. You will have to relocated the two rear pumps on your tank. I placed my pumps on the side of the tank. I tried installing it without moving them but the tank was too high and it didn't allow my hood to close.

Looks great! Love the way the fenders look with your set up.

Casotakar1229 03-03-2012 10:55 AM

I finally finished. Today I installed the final piece to the puzzle. I installed the
front turnsignals. :dance:

about to order myself a set of fenders, those look like the 6 inch, i want the 4.5's I still want some tire to stick out.

The battery sensor is there for a reason. It monitors the battery temperature.
If the battery gets too hot, the sensor triggers the PCM into shutting down the alternator till the battery cools.

Ask me about what happens when a battery goes ballistic, when you are running down the road at night on a curve. 6 months eating through a straw, and 2 years learning how to walk again is not fun.

I agree your fenders look great!
