Figured out fender install problem
I know it's been a while since I've been around, or even messed with the Jeep for that matter, but today I got busy on it.
The problem I was having was that my new fiberglass fenders weren't lining up after I put on the fiberglass tub. It was either line them up with the grill and have a gap at the bottom edge of the fender where it meets the body, or line them up on the body and have big gaps at the grill.
Well, I was just looking at it the other day and it hit me...the front body mounts were not tall enough and the front of the tub was sitting low. Sure enough, I loosend the body mount bolts and jacked up the body and viola, the fenders lined up. So, I cut two new mounts for the front from the extra roll of rubber I bought and hopefully the problem is solved. I ran out of daylight, so I wasn't able to get the fenders on, but I'm pretty psyched.
Now that work gave me a digital camera, I'll have to get some pics up.
