Are they Bushwackers? Hard to tell from the photo...and turning my head sideways.

strider_mt2k 03-13-2012 05:51 PM

Sweet! Nice flares!
I had 2 Quadra boxes and a Dell box waiting when I got home today too!
On top of it all the wife found me some Coca~Cola with some honest-to-god SUGAR in it. -Delicious, and takes me back.

I love days like this!
:D

they are the rugged ridge fender flares. I finished in 3 hours with a friend. they look awesome, but I'll have to say a bit awkward with my stock rims. tires/wheels coming monday and I'll take pictures then. I also need to figure out how to better fit the modified inner fender. the back portion of the front inner lining is a bit loose because there weren't any bolt holes. I'll have to find something at lowe's to keep it down. besides that, everything went smooth.

Hhmmmm.....that's tempting. However, I have about 40 head of cattle pretty much in my backyard, so I have plenty of that already! Lol.

Yeah, you are probably right. Everything else up there is extra %&@#ty, so I'm sure the cow poop is too.

I keed, I keed. :rofl:

If I were a cow, I'd certainly prefer the CA climate over that of WI. :thumb:

Casotakar1229 03-14-2012 02:41 PM

Lol. Those ace engineering sliders are one of the best mods I ever did. I have seen plenty of different side steps and they don't compare. My buddy got the rugged ridge ones and they look cheap and tacky. Ace rails FTMFW.

also show some pictures of your fenders!

GoldenSahara00 03-14-2012 03:59 PM

All I got today was a control arm bushing... Not as fun

have a slight issue. the rear bolt on the passenger side is just turning and turning and won't tighten. either the bolt is toast or the inner tread is toast...but other than that they look awesome. I'll just have to go unscrew the bolt all the way and see if the tread is bad, which is what I am crossing my fingers for. and yea, I'm posting up a ton of pics on monday afternoon.

Casotakar1229 03-14-2012 04:59 PM

lucky day for me. got another package....rugged ridge billet grille insert. installed (about 15-20 minutes) and it looks awesome!!

Casotakar1229 03-14-2012 05:55 PM

good news...neither the bolt or inner tread was stripped. I have a bolt loose in my brain....didn't even think to check the washer until about 20 minutes of searching threads on stripped bolts. the washer just wasn't shaved enough so the bolt couldn't reach far enough to grasp the tread. conclusion: ace rock rails fully installed!!

I ground mine down at work in preparation for the install a few days later.

When it came time to install the rails one of them got hung up and I was afraid I hadn't ground it down enough, but just a little persuasion and it dropped in.

-yeah those moments suck. Glad it worked out. :thumb:

Also: Did you get a key chain, and if so what color?
If you post pics of your Ace rails installed, try to get a shot with the key chain in it if you got one.
It is a silly tradition that I like to uphold.

when I take pictures I will make sure that the key chain is in the picture as well :thumb:

and yes, I was SO relieved when I figure out the issue with the washer. lol. but those bolts are bitty tricky to get in as well. I did the install alone so I had to use my body as leverage to holt the rails up.

strider_mt2k 03-14-2012 06:34 PM

I had help, but found that a cordless drill made the install a snap, letting me run the bolts out/in with the drill and doing the hard stuff with a breaker bar.

cordless drill would have been SWEET lol. I don't have a garage or power tools besides the dremel I used to shave the washers. I am very happy with the end result though, they look awesome and I can also stand on them and they still feel really sturdy.

GoldenSahara00 03-14-2012 07:04 PM

Why do you have to shave washers? Just wondering.
