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!

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'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.

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.

    • Joyner Trooper Power Steering

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU. It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

    • Trooper loud clunk in front

      I'm having a loud bang in the front every now and then. It sounds like it comes from the left and right wheels (alternately). It doesn't do it on flat road at all, only on a rutted dirt path. At first I thought it was the suspension violently reaching the extent of it's travel, kind of like a no rubber metal on metal bang. I just got it (used) so it's a mystery how long this bang has been there. Any ideas?
