After a bit of fun with my buddy from Idaho in town
I ripped off the front fender, flares from impact
Seems like with the wheel spacers instead of hitting the fender liners it hit the fenders themselves

It only damage the plastic clips on the back
Which was an easy fix when I got some from an auto shop instead of the local dealer

Here are some pics of the generic clips which have a little more plastic than the dealer ones

I over did it with a 50mm spacer
I’m going smaller soon

Is there an issue with the spacer? Concerns with the contact you made when jumping? I am looking at doing something now in preparation for larger tires.

Do you have any pics of the clearance between the UCA and current setup?

Here are some pics of my home made wench mount and tubular bumper
With the little extra support bracket on frame rails
Not bad for $250 🤣🤷‍♂️

Here is a video with the bumper almost done
I’d like to add some more plate to the one middle area
And finish fog lights and parking sensors
Just multi tasking too much

Side note the Bull bar blocks the ACC
May have to make it about 2” shorter

While doing the bumper
I was able to pull the stock exhaust muffler (For sale)
And replace it with a summit racing one, and the stock resonators

As well as cover it all up with some 3/16” steel skid plate I made

I know a lot of these photos have some decently hack, cutting and welding in them
But we were in a rush to get it done

And I have since re-grind it and welded some of the ghetto areas
🤣🤷‍♂️

Pretty straight forward to install
Just make sure to lube tire area where it contacts
And torque to spec
I actually went over the recommended 47 ft lbs to 50
And double cycled it to make sure there were no stragglers that were loose

Popped some of these door jamb protectors from IAG on
Pretty decent for the price point
Can’t complain
And made a battery cut off switch for the wench

Also put on the Molle door pockets, and rear seat carpet protectors from IAG
Again nothing fancy
But it helps
They just Velcro to the “carpet” area
I wish it had more contact area to stick tho, no issue coming loose yet, but I like things overkill

I don’t have any pictures, but I’ll get you one as soon as I get home from work

I was afraid that the normal spacing that everyone else uses would not be enough for my super nobby mud terrain tires

I also had to have the vehicle for my daily driver, so I kind of made it overly big just to make sure there was no issue
