Don't worry @Double W Cross Ranch I'm actually going to answer the question you asked lol. I remember when you first put the other set of fenders and floorboards on this tractor and I really liked it. I think you should find some mud flaps and make some flares with them and build a rear rack for it too. A trimmed fender would look cool too, but I wouldn't get rid of the fenders completely.

Well, a little pricey.

But man, they are insane!!!  They get traction on every single thing, and you can still drift and do donuts with them.  And the ones I linked you to fit on 8" rims.

Thanks haha.  Well yeah, I was just going to trim them.  Like eliminate the hang over part, and cut them kinda like a triangle, with long fender flairs that come out the back.  Hope that makes sense, I can take some pics and edit them or draw or something if it doesn't.

Good thanks!

How would this look:

Look like a newer F-250 brush guard!

looks nice, but a custom bumper with even crappy welds would be stronger and probably cheaper.

Oh well I think that one will be strong enough.  That with a camo hood, and those fenders, should look really good! Would mount it closer to the hood though.

I think that the brush guard would look really cool. I know you're trying to avoid welding lol, so this is a good bolt-on option.

Don't worry, I'm going to. But my grinder is temporarily out of commission. Lol, and seeing as how my other fender is welded to the Roper, I now can't proceed till I get it working again.

Sweet deal. Given any thought to some cool front suspension plans to match the rear?

The words "nothing fancy" don't belong in the 2018 Build-Off! Hahaha, just kidding.

Been receiving a lot of requests about what my front suspension is going to be like, especially from a certain @AllisKidD21, lol.  Sorry to disappoint him.

Yeah sorry, nothing fancy. Just something along these lines, with the pivot bolt. The wonder of editing, haha.

For fenders, this is kinda what she's going to look like, the black represents fender flares, the red represents what I'm cutting off. And mud lites.

Battery tray, needs a couple more supports, but didn't have time this morning.

And there is why I need my grinder to get the other fenders off. lol!

Oh man those are a lot of boogers to cut through! lol!

I like the mod you have planned for your fenders. Your front suspension design is simple, but I'm pretty sure that will help stabilize it at high speeds.

Yeah gonna be lots of fun, haha.
Thanks, and I know where I'm getting the material for the flares. There's a mud flap sitting in the road....
Good, I know that when AK sees it though, he's going to through a fit. He wants me to do some 4 point something or other. No offense intended, BTW!

Hey man that same setup is what Mr. Modified did on his famous Baja Sears. It seems like it worked okay. I would run just shocks though and no coil overs. The front pivot pin supports the weight of the tractor on the axle so you don't need to add springs to hold the tractor up. I think shocks would smooth out and stabilize the ride. I do wonder what AllisKidD21's thoughts are on this. @Buck Mault just did this to his sears too and I wonder what he thinks.
