Did some more work this week, and last.

Painted fenders/quarter panels with a spray on bed liner. Sanded and painted the ARB bumper with the same bed liner. Installed the new winch solenoids, aluminum fairlead and Masterpull rope. Winch is back in business






Trimmed the sides of the ARB bumper up more for tire clearance


With full width axles and my 35's the tires don't stick out all that bad.



Still a few odds and ends to do for now, before I can hit the trails(fuel filter, front diff breather, clean out the Heep).
Hopefully within' the next month I can have Ironman start on some sliders and rear bumper w/swingout. I would also like to get a Anti-rock swaybar setup in the front if $$$ allows.

I don't shop at Walmart.
Remember there is another store/company that brings a good amount of money into my household, so I'm not allowed to shop at Walmart. :tonka:
That and the fact I hate the white trash that shop there.


On a side note, you should see the potholes at the Midland Mall. I might have to put my 36's back on before I go shopping there

Thanks, I plan on using it on the sliders and rear bumper when we get around to making them.

That stuff should work great on the sliders. Just make sure you put a couple coats of primer on them first as rust preventative. I think I got a total of like 6 coats of paint on mine and they have held up really really well. Everything else is looking good.

My bumper and fender got a couple coats of rustoleum primer first. I'm sure my bumper will rust again, but easy to touch up now with the bedliner.
