    the reason i didn't take more is because i wanted to keep the factory outside handle and mirror, but also, we measured it to the perfect arm rest height :D

    hey man, sorry to just be getting back to you, i am changing the brake lines bc they only had about 1" of slack, i went with the SS trail-gear ones. also I am going to change my shackles as well bc the rear one is put at a awkward angle bc of the leafs

    I got my new fenders in this afternoon. Bought them from my buddy matt at Halls body shop, great guys to deal with! I went with fenders off of a 1984 toyota 2WD, yes I am putting 2wd fenders on a 4wd. I put 2wd because they do not flare so they are a little narrower. Ill post pics tomorrow once I get them installed

    Finally finished up one half door. turned out good IMO. I put some bondo to smooth out the imprefections and make them look sleek when it is painted. Not too bad considering I only have $6.77 in them :cool:

    So i have the fenders mounted. I bought fenders for a 1985 pickup 2WD and they mounted up PERFECT, im very pleased with the result. Also I mounted up a half door just to see how it looked, and i must say im impressed with them as well.
