I done got robbed! Lol
And no that's not rust that just dirt grime and gunk that was under the armor
Warsh that thing while it's striped.
That's the plan plus I believe a few coats of wax to protect it in the future.
Good idea! And put a 572 Ramjet motor in it.
With an 871 blower.
I will as long as I hit the lotto
No the real reason is because I'm cheap lol kinda running low on my upgrade funds but one day I may have Chris build me some with Enduro joint when I have the extra funds
Enduro Joints are sexy. I'm debating between the tried and true JJ or the new duroflex from MetalCloak. Still on the fence. It's really a hard choice for me, I know it will be driven alot on the the street... So I'm thinking the duroflex should be quieter maybe?
Enduro joints are the way to go and you get the added benefit of supporting a local vendor on here. I couldn't be any happier with the @Barnes 4wd Enduro joints on my Rubicon.
I have the enduros on my front arms all around and they are as quiet on the road as my buddies lift that has poly bushings but mine are way more flexible. Best of both worlds and supporting the small guy is a win win in my book!!
Thank you for the kind words guys! Our Enduro joints have definitely stood the test of time!
Dropped off the rear corner armor, rocker gaurds, and front tube fenders at the sandblasters yesterday should get them back today or tomorrow in preparation for powered coating.
Are you going black? Or body color?
What did you do about the exhaust?
I'm going with silver. And we are trying to match it as best we can.
Haven't made it to the exhaust shop yet but we are going to try and put it out the back of the jeep as much as we can
Picked up all my armor and fenders fresh from the sandblasters.
Since I've owned the jeep I've had a rust problem with the front tube fenders where the tube meets the plate on the top and sides. So while it was clear of all paint and previous powered coating (that was shit from smittybuilt ) I am welding up the seems to try and keep the rust at away. I have one fender all welded up and about 2/3rds of the other one done. I will take a flap wheel to even it all out but so far I'm very pleased with the look.
Run down of what has been done today. Chris has gotten all the armor minus the tube fenders powdered coated. Installed with all new stainless hardware plus drill and install nutserts for a few of the mounting holes that were previously not bolted. Taillights reinstalled, install new battery (since the old one decided to die), prep the tube fenders for powered coating, mock up the a-pillar stantions for the roll cage and more but I've just forgot what else. It has come a long way in a short time.
Don't forget those pimp beads from that girl with the floppy ears.

Are you going to do something about that black grille?
I'd like to replace it with one that's already painted silver but finding one and or being able to afford one. Last one I found already painted to match they wanted like 700 and I'm ok with my jacked up one
Troy I may just have to do that
