Re: Benn0's build up thread

I got mine from Murchisons, but there was a bit of a wait:

MOPAR WK2 Rock Rails | Murchison Products AEV QLD Distributor

Perhaps mopar online may have been a bit cheaper...

Re: Benn0's build up thread

I just ordered some from SBR in WA,
MOPAR - WK2 Rock Rails

Just $1500 delivered to my door in Melb, they are in a container at the moment but they expect delivery by the end of August.

I have used them in the past for our JK parts but they are starting to stock more GC parts and I find them a lot cheaper than a lot of other suppliers.

Cheers

Re: Benn0's build up thread

Hey Benn0, looks great!

I reckon a front bonnet protector (dark/black) would look pretty good on your setup.

And still had problems with one of the flag bolts... they are silly things!
I know this is a very old post, but did you have any issues with clearance on the front drivers side pinch weld bolt? The cross member is in the way for mine, haha.

Re: Benn0's build up thread

What seat covers are those and where did you get them from?

These (probably): WetSeat
Site says they have to be tailored fit for the fronts in JGC

Re: Benn0's build up thread

Yeah, wetseat covers, and they custom make the fronts, but they do fit well.

I'm trying to remember now, but yes the pinch weld bolts are tricky to get to at the front and at the rear from memory. I can't remember what I ended up doing, I know I had some trouble with some bolts not threading properly, so I put a few roofing screws in where I had to.
