Ok.

Cleaned up these brackets. They also support the quarterpanel skin, as well as take the share of the "road rash" kicked up off the rear tires. But these are excellent, hands down best I have seen.

Brackets cleaned-up nicely - may have to look at mine now.

I was too at one point and then realized without the flaps folks don't seem to be riding my ass as the tires kick-up everything on the road. That along with Dixon Bate tow jaw with a recovery ring attached to the rear receiver gives pause to those behind me.

I'm thinking maybe with a replacement windscreen running $1,500 that it would be good karma to run the mudflaps. Also should keep from slinging shit up into the rear bumper area.

Joel did you get the Magna-Grip rivets out of the mud flap brackets? I actually have these things new, both sides. I forget where I got them but I think that creek's dried up anyway. If I'm not mistaken I have two of one side. The sunroof drain goes thru them in that oval hole.

Not yet, back when people used to care about their flaps, I would usually just cut the big rivets off when replacing one and use bolts going back, so when that one gets ripped off it's easy to keep feeding new ones to it... but in the past few years it seems more common to just cut off the other side than replace what is missing.

Good choice on the heated windshield replacement as never would not have one on a RRC given that was the cure for the crappy defrost system. It does work though-you can always see forward or back with the rear heated one.

Yeah, the bolt vs rivet was always my deal as well.

I like Flapless!!

Ok. Since there is only a few short weeks until the URE11 event, and I have managed to fill the entire cargo area of the truck with new parts... I am going to attempt to do some work on the truck today.

Sad to think, most people would bill this as "rust free", and while it looks pretty sweet, there is a little in the passenger front floor...



It isn't very bad yet though, no holes or anything. Will address this in more detail later on.

Here are detail shots of the other side to show how it starts- from the front mudflap mount bracket. As if mudflap bracket hadn't been mentioned enough in this thread yet.

Also, if you look close you can see I installed Discovery Series II door gaskets/door seals (as sold at buckhornimports.com ) on the truck, huge improvement over the worn out originals. Look closer you might see something else.

I also replaced the battery in the seat memory ECU, doesn't look like it is gonna work though. Oh well, it was worth a shot.

Nice tip on the seals as for sure mine are also worn.

Wonder what the 807 stands for?

Are you replacing or resurfacing the wood trim?
