Well, I've opted to put the Bushwhackers on a back burner until I can stuff wide enough rubber on. For now: stock flares. I've got the rims painted and waiting for tires to come in and be mounted (tomorrow). The flares have been installed (new on the front and re-used the old back ones). The back plates had mostly broken studs in them - so I used nuts/bolts/washers instead. I'll have to see how well this works - there might be warping in the sun. I got the rest of the front end put together and the bed liner painted in:
These are pics in primer (the paint wasn't tough enough though) - they have since been powder coated black.
Here's the repaired area - not too noticable. Here's the new slider back window - still needs seal (on order).
I got the new front bumper installed. I also tied in the lower cowl molding (original) to the two front flares - went together fine.
The front end is still missing the upper and lower trim pieces - I'll find some one of these days. Good enough for now!
