Yes, Tab is right about the fenders. I figure on tube fenders some day but they function just fine right now. Why spend money on something that works? At least I don't have to put shims under my hard top because some asshole built the cage wrong. (coughkellycough)

I sit on the living room floor every night drinking geritol and clipping coupons. You young punks could learn something.

Oh and Erin, a stock motor works just fine if you're not always breaking shit and having to dead winch.

You forget John. Tab goes home after every wheeling trip and repaints his entire rig. It's the only way his wife lets him keep it.

I'm trying to figure out a way I can go wheeling and leave it all masked off still. Maybe I'll just rhino-line the whole thing.....

A couple updates. I finally got around to installing the corner guards, a new soft top and half doors. (sorry for the fuzzy pics)




And then I heard that if you run aluminum wheels that the extra bling helps you do better in the rocks. So, since I bought new wheels, I had to add some tires. Oh, and new drive flanges too.

Smittybuilt bought from Dale at Ironman Offroad. They come pre powder coated and with stainless hardward. that's why they stayed black rather than painting them white to look like Tab.

Guess.
Who needs tube fenders when fiberglass works?
