Default armor questions. detachable?

so i'm going to try to explain this the best i can.

i'm doing some armor on my tj.

i want to have a small stinger and a headlight surround,wich will tie to the bumper/frame.

off of the suround ( 2 o'clock on the driver side headlight and 10 o'clock on the passanger side headlight) i want to start my fenders . flat fender/tube style not the stock ones.

the problem is i want to be able to remove them. not just burn them in.

anyone else do this or have pics? what did you use to tie them in.

i was thinking , to use a sleeve of smaller tube to fit in side with two small oval plates to bolt them together. thoughts?


thanks aron

Depends on the orientation you put them when you weld them in. Mine unbolt from the body side(4 stock bolts) then unbolt the tube clamp and remove straight up. How yours come apart will be determined by how you attach the tube clamp and the orientation of it when you weld it in.
