MCEs were on my original build plan, but I decided to try to make my own flatties out of the stock fenders to save the money. I kind of like the way they came out and I have the same clearance the MCEs would give me. Down the road someday if I decide i want to go to 35s I might get Metalcloak arched and do 35s on no lift! But that probably won't happen.Gus you officially got me to buy a case (12 cans) of olive drab krylon fusion for my yj. Now I cant wait to spray her down Also you could just pick up some mce flatties. Maybe get lucky and find some used ones for dirt cheap?
I have all that info on my build spreadsheet at home...to the penny! :rofl: But really the tires and wheels were the biggest expense so far and that was around $1100. The paint was under $50. The two medal stickers were actually $17 on line shipped. The stock LJ springs were free since they were off my old Jeep and the SJ shocks were like $120 after rebate and the 3/4" spacer was around $30 i think. Tail lights were about $14 and the Harley mirrors set me back around $60. I made a few bucks selling the hitch, wheels, etc too.Gus can you give us an idea of how much you have wrapped up in this build so far?
Actually I didn't wait long enough for the Herc to dry before I applied the OD and it kind of "alligatored" in spots. After it dried I re-applied it and it seems ok. Long term we shall see.How well did the Krylon adhere to the Herc-U-Liner?
I really like the OD/BLK in the tub.:thumb:
This rig has come a long ways in a very short time. TT next?
Yep...I remember that you had those. I have read numerous posts by Jerry about both aluminum and the super 35 which was why I decided to go with them and probably still will. I was a little surprised that JP was negative about aluminum but not so much about the 35 since they have always bashed that axle and preached that it isn't worth sinking money into.That's funny. I have the Super 35 and aluminum UCF ultra high clearance skid.
Both have served me well. Both were also recommended by Jerry Bransford.
I am headed to Moab the first week in June. They both held up last year I guess I'll see if they last two trips.:thumb:One thing is certain when it comes to opinions...especially about Jeeps...there will always be a lot of disagreement. Keeps things interesting! :thumb:
