  • Tube Fenders on my CJ

    Well, Saturday I got started on my tube fenders for my CJ. I purchase a DIY kit from White Rhino Fab because I couldn't buy the supplies for what the kit was. Well maybe, but it would have been close and I don't have access to a bender or the skill to do it like some of the board members here.

    Enough typing. More pics

    The sacrificial fender so I can have inner fenders

    Finished up. I still need to weld the flare on, but the Tube Fender itself is on.

      Looks good, the kit lines aren't too bad, glad to see these kind of pieces coming out for the CJ's. What are you going to do for indicators?

          I don't believe I have to have them here. I looked up TXDOTand I couldn't find where it said I had to have them so I am going to go without for now.

            It can go 2 ways. It had them on there before, therefore it must stay on the vehicle (like the cat and EGR on our diesel trucks). BUT inspection says nothing about it, so you can get by without them. Not to mention, I'm sure your inspector won't even think twice about it.

              Yeah, the inspector won't care. They don't even drive it. They ask me to pull it in the shop, turn the lights on, and honk the horn. LOL

                  They worked good at SMORR over the weekend. I am glad I have them because the 35's even rubbed onthem a bit. Stock fenders would have been goners. I need to post a pic of 2 when I get home later.

                    Ok, here are some pics after I added the flares. Some of them in primer, painted, and then back on the Jeep. I am very please with how they turned out.

                    With the 35's on and flexed a bit.

                    A short video of me at SMORR over the weekend. You can see the tube fenders allow room for the 35's nicely.

                      Looking Good! Were the pics before or after you got things all muddy? How difficult was it to do the inner fenders?

                        The pics were before I got them all muddy. The inner fenders were easy. I just hacked up some stock fenders so they would line up with the tube fender kit. While I had it all bolted up to test fitting, I tack welded the tube fender to the inner.
