    Nice nimble Jeep and it has character. By the way it looks worse now. This is an old picture





    My Jeep would look like that by now without it's armor. But it's nimble fer shure
    I like that alot.

    When I flopped my Jeep last month, the Genright flares were scratched from unflopping her with Jonah's winch. The tub was fine. I did have the body taco from being on her lid just below the cowl in front of the door opening though. That is more from the ORFAB sport cage vs. a full cage going to the floor. The body rippled underneath or behind the rock slider. No clue how to get my full doors back on now either...

    Some judicious work with a portapower should get it all to fit again

    Curtis, What rub rails are you considering? Savvy are the only ones I can find. Are there any others out there?
    It was like that when I got here.

    I made up a couple of stainless steel corners. The 18 gauge seems to be pretty strong. They're easy to make, but aluminum would be much easier to work with. If I smash these I'll try some thick aluminum.

    I've thought about putting some on, just can't find a set that has back up. side lighting and a licence plate light all in one - that dosen't cost several hundred $'s. Any suggestions.

    My JK has Nfab rock rails. Have them for three years now and still look great. They can be used as durable nerf bars also with the detachable steps.
