    Since Brooks has his new project in the works it got me motivated to get back on this. This weekend I plan to pick up some 12 tube to build rub rails and fenders. I also ordered a charging station panel for inside with 2 USB ports and a cigarette lighter plug.

    Very nice! Where did the panel come from? Does the rocker switch turn it on, and if so, is it through a relay?

    This is the panel:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01D4...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Rocker switch feeds the panel so the meter and back light aren't on all the time. No relay. The switch is rated for 20 amps and the circuit is on a 15 amp breaker, but it will never pull that. It's tapped in to the trailer's original overhead light wiring that is just 2 led lights.

    I like that panel. I'm contemplating installing one of those voltage/current meters

    I ran out of time and energy before hot springs to build my fenders. My plan is very similar to Brooks' but to make them bolt on if possible. Although I'm more concerned about the weight now after dragging that thing loaded up Saluda grade...

    To have some kind of coverage for the Hot Springs trip, I bolted the factory plastic fenders back on and went to town trimming them.

    Decent coverage from the front, which was my biggest concern knowing it would be towed home behind my pickup.


    For anyone behind... sorry


    Hopefully before I pull it again I'll have some time to work on it. I think I'm going to use the 1x2 1/8th wall I already bought for the rub rail but get some 1/16th for the rest to lighten it a little.

    Oh, and if any JK owners need fender trimming, my services are available for a small fee

    I used 1/8 for the rub rails and 1/16 for the fenders, I think it was ample. I had originally bought 1/8" for the outer tube on the fender, but decided to squeeze all the fender tubes out of that one stick of 1/16.
