While i had the fenders off i cut the tabs off the bottom of the front glass. it was a minimal mod, but i think its helped the look of the front end alot. im going to try and get the other side done tonight.

i also came to the realization that i probably wont have the frame boxed for silverlakes, and i may be on the rancho rear shocks. Im just out of time with parts still over a week away.





I should add that a metal cut off disc worked wonders on the glass, just take it nice and slow.

I went to their site, it doesn't look like much is there. Aside from brodozer headlights and tails, r/c cars and misc led's. Yea they have a couple bumpers but there is no product drop downs or options. The only thing for us on the frot page is 6" glass.

yea their site isnt as "done" as it could be. but they are a supplier for anything offroad. they mark up a touch, but dont charge me duty. i just call them with what i want and they quote me. they will grab just about anything and get it north of the border for nothing.

yu want to go to this page.
