fender clip

Courtesy of Amazon, a bag of clips for my new painted fenders is on its way. Now, to find warm enough weather and, more importantly, time to wash off the Jeep so I can install them …

Seizing opportunities

Painted fenders

I’ve been eyeing a set of Nemesis Crawler fenders as an alternative to lifting Smokey before I upgrade my tires early next year. That plan took a detour today, as I stumbled across someone local to me selling a set of Jk Sahara take-off fenders for a price that was too good to pass up.

I’d given up on the idea of finding factory painted fenders for a reasonable price, and I’m looking forward to weather warm enough to permit me to swap out my fenders. The Nemesis flares? Oh, I’m sure I’ll get to them eventually, but I can live with these a few years and focus on other areas of Smokey’s build-up.

All (mostly) better

A little grinding, some primer and paint, and my rear bumper is all well again.

Sometimes, the trail bites back

Had a great time out on the trails today. But, I did try a drop that required just a bit more clearance than I currently have. Oops.
