I'm doing the same thing right now on a 2000 -- I just wish photobucket didn't destroy the internet -- Finding a thread on how and where to cut and fold with actual,working pictures is proving to be a challenge
Use Google Chrome browser and install the "Photobucket Hotlink Fix" extension. Fixes PB's photos.

Oh, and one of the previous owners completely messed up the cut and fold. These look real nice.

Fab shop for Jeep parts. It's a small operation. I haven't seen anything from them but I've heard good things from others.

What he said.

I am looking at maybe doing a cut-n-fold on my 90, if this gives a better end result, I'll go with it.

Can't believe the shop doesn't have any finished pics of it.

Re: cut and weld... I mean cut nd fold

If you go on the flop shops facebook they have some installed pics. got the panels I in yesterday, just waiting for a day off and the weather to cooperate. only downside of the panles is they didn't come with any directions. Granted, they shouldn't be hard to do, but should come with something. This is why when I do install them im gonna attempt an install video for everyone. I cant wait to see how they will look with my new bumper I put on recently.








(hopefully the pics work)

I'm male, 46, with a limited ability to tolerate bullshit. I do not Facebook.
Seriously they have a website. Put the pics there, guys.

It would be nice if theyd put the installed pics on their site.
and FB can be handy, especially when I can message some of the offroad companies directly (ironman4x4, Napier precision etc)

This is what email is for. I do it all the time with Ruffstuff and others. I flat out will not deal with companies that run everything through Facebook. I'm trying to buy their product, not screw them (which is what facebook was originally made for).

I forget which company, but there was one a few months back I was looking at some of their stuff for my son's jeep. The Contact Us segment of their site was a URL for a Facebook page. They lost about $1500 worth of sales right then and there.

You're not alone. I so hate what FB has done to our family and community.

Testify, my brother!

Our old Jeep club, the Lowcountry Jeeprs, used to have a forum they hosted. There was some good tech there, although there was some negotiation required to not keep threads searchable for only three months. Idiocy.

Then they went and made a facebook group, so they wouldn't incur the $50/year cost of the site, which was "too expensive". I volunteered to host it, I volunteered to pay for it- nope. Off to facebook they went... and it became a complete cesspool. I checked it the other day, and it was full of feelgood rants from some tranny, political meanderings, and basically anything you can think of other than jeeps. Clearly the "Admin" can not be bothered to police the crap.

Yeah, brilliant place. I will celebrate the day Facebook goes dark. Now, anyone got these pics offsite of FB?
