I was going to post this last week about Mudslinger’s custom fenders. Check them out here http://www.utvboard.com/gallery/image/467-fenders2jpg/ Mudslinger, is a Joyner Dealer in Alberta and his website is http://www.mudslinger.ca/

These look good and you can tell they would do the job required.

Cheers Mike.

Hi Eric,

Take a look at the post called "Mudslinger tamed". It will give you an idea of how I solved the problem. Kinarfi has also done work on his fenders. Send me your email address and I'll send you pictures.

Have fun!

Heres some that I made out of flare material I got from JC Whitney. It was cheap; looks decent, and is rugged.

Silverbullet.

I was think of makeing them out of diamond plate in black.The only thing they would make noise over stones.We could use some of the plastic and trim it out with the diamond plate.This way we could make 45 degree bends by the sides and the front to look real cool.What do you guys think.The rocker panel would be easy to make and look real nice.

Here's my first unintentional fender mod, 2633082840104110397YiwFrI_th.jpg, I didn't get too fancy, just wanted to keep the mud, brown and green, off me, the green mud is left by animals like cows and sheep, yuck!!!! Here's a photo of the fronts, 2233912510104110397fZKvom_th.jpg, just redid the rears, so no photos, yet.

I like my stock ones! My doors will keep stuff from coming inside. Money better spent as doors add to the safety of the people in the caged area.

Hello Rick/Silverbullet,

Next project this summer. I will share pic & info. When my better 3/4's stuck her leg out to stop us from going over in Moab it became apparent to me that for us they were a priority.

Yeah, a torquer cam would be great!

Fenders, on my last trip out to Moab with 2 scoops, I came home minus a fender, so here's what I decided to try this time around, so far, so good, took for a 30 mile ride yesterday evening.

Would NOT work for Mudding, but since I hate mud, they should work fine for me. I think it will let the radiator breath better and hopefully have less dirt & dust getting into the engine compartment.

I placed two different orders for that plastic and the second order was a lot thicker, go figure.

DirtyDog, how many rolls does it take? 1 or 2 to do all 4 fenders?

I bought one roll and that was more than enough. I still have lots left over.

I'm in RAIN and MUD country. Here are some mods I did to my fenders (cus of wife) doors (cus of wife) and... well, you get the idea.

I removed the plastic covering over the engine and replaced it with checkerplate aluminum with a storage compartment and backward facing seat.

Then I used the plastic cover for the fenders, which work well.

The doors fold up and away, and the hard windshield can be removed in 3 minutes. I have a soft windshield to use in summer months which is permanently attached on the inside.

Mopartist, are you still using the stock bolts holding your ball joints in place on your suspension arms? Change them before it's you loose a wheel.
