Love the product! I have a 1994 YJ with a 4.0 L and 5-speed AX15 trans. Ford 8.8 rear and 2.5 L front Dana 30 with 4.10 gears. My flares are your 8” because I’m using wheel spacers. The flares dropped right on like Lego. Awesome. I painted the plate steel in body colour. And the tubing in black wrinkle finish to match my bumpers. This was all part of a project to search out some rust in the front end. So it took weeks to get done. I had to weld a giant washer in the frame tab for under the grille. Loads more, including a custom stainless steel skid plate on the oil pan. Note in the pictures, I used a marine plug for the open tube in the fender. I also put some led rock lights in the inner well and shock hoop. Perfect size! Went crazy with the inner fender wells with: 1. Alodine (aircraft aluminum treatment) 2. etching primer 3. Base coat metallic 4. Anodize-look blue topcoat 5. Cor-ban 27L aircraft corrosion preventative coating. Had a little trouble fitting the hood because I used TJ style SS hood catches. They’re more bulky. Tip: If you pull the fenders up and out in the front before bolting to the grille, you’ll get a little more clearance. I also used automotive seam sealer on mating surfaces before installing. It’s paintable, prevents corrosion and galling. I found my own stainless bolts for the fender, as I only got painted black steel. Had to trim the hood where the inner well bolts are, but that’s because I capped them with stainless acorn nuts. That’s all for now, I have more, but I see you’re falling asleep...
