So I finally got the time to break out the fender eliminator from bertja and do an install. Everything turned out fine with the FE, problem is, I have 4 ugly hangdowns. I'm about to go pick up a grinder and have myself a nice garage session makin noise. Anybody have any suggestions??

yep you got it. grind it off. i used a cut-off wheel. its stainless. so its alot harder than normal. oh and use some earplugs. stainless is LOUD when being cut. while ur at it, get some high temp BBQ paint and paint it up. looks alot better black....but hey thats just my thought

How involved is the process of removing the exhaust for painting? I've cut the bracket off and want to paint it black but removing it looks to be a real pain in the ass.

Better solution:

Drop that stock anchor for an Akra! Sounds better and weighs 1/4 as much.

Cut mine off with a dremel. Takes a bit of time and you can get a nice clean cut.

before and after painting black

I'm seriously considering dropping the money on either a yoshi, akra, or TB..but I've got the cash flow tied up in a new ride since the exploder stb (read: shit the bed) on me. Damn thing didn't even make it to 100grand. Oh well, new Jeep on monday :)
