Do-it-Yourself Fender Fabbing
Anyone who off-roads for any significant length of time has probably given some thought to modifying their factory fenders. These thoughts surface for any number of reasons-be it a way to gain more tire clearance while keeping a low center of gravity, replacing fenders that have been destroyed on the trail, making the fenders stronger, or just changing them for the sake of looks. We decided it was time for a rehash for all of the above listed reasons.
We gave the folks at Blue Torch Fabworks a call to see what they had cooking and they told us about their DIY tube-fender kits. Blue Torch offers these DIY tube-fender kits for CJs, YJs, and TJs. The kits include all the parts you need to make your own tube fenders. The kit consists of eight pieces, four pieces for each side of the vehicle. All you need to put them together is about half a day, a welder, and a buddy to lend an extra pair of hands. The tube-fender kits retail for $175 and can be ordered directly from the Blue Torch Fabworks Web site. Follow along as we walk you through building and installing these great kits.
