well today i got my new sending unit in the cell and it works perfect with my factory fuel gauge so thats cool, but i started on my flares, they are not were near done and will be different than another other i have seen, the flat bit is 1/8th inch and the round is 3/4 inch solid, so far they are Turning out great.

Nice job on the fenders! Any plans to brace them so you can lean on them a bit?

its secret lol, i will put it this way, the 1/8th inch plate that you see is just the bottom there will be a top plate as well, but it will be a little different that anything i have seen on a cherokee.....they will also be 2 piece like the plastic bushwackers

nothing to exciting, i did get some 35's for it and just ordered a ten point roll cage today. hopefully i will be home for 3 weeks for christmas break from college so hopefully i will work on this thing like its a job and get it at least wheelable, im having with drawls. i plan on installing cage and finishing fenders and bumpers ect send that stuff to paint then i can at least use it. from there i will save money for new axles and all that good stuff ect ect ect

edit: and i bought some rockers
