River Raider Fender Install Guide

This is part 3 of my in depth series of install guides. Yesterday, we tackled the River Raider Fenders on Jake's Jeep. It was a cinch for us pros. So I will now show you guys who have no skills whatsoever, how to install River Raider Fenders on your Jeeps.

Keep in mind, if you are not a skilled mechanic, such as the ones we have in our club, you might not wanna tackle this stuff alone or without a lot of beer.

Let's get started.


Step 1. You are going to need a 2 year old for this installation. We utilized Evan. Evan is REALLY into Monster Trucks and is prone to being blamed for losing shit he never even touched.


Step 2. Since you have no skills whatsoever at pretty much doing anything marketable and/or useful, call Evan's dad over and have him do all the dirty work and make the decisions that may or may not destroy your Jeep. Meanwhile, you can keep Evan entertained. He brought MONSTER TRUCKS!


Step 3. But just playing in the dirt and stuff - that gets boring. So you might as well have some races down Jake's driveway. And since there are so many trucks in his collection - let's run a few heats and find the fastest one!


Step 4. Through careful, consistent time trials, it was determined that the three fastest trucks were: (a) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, (b) El Toro Loco, and (c) Monster Mutt. The ensuing duel was a testament to the time honored tradition of racing cars down Jake's driveway while real men do mechanicy stuff. (Well, Brian anyways).


Step 5. Who won? Easy enough:


Guide continued on next post....

Step 6. Meanwhile, back at the Jeep... You need to make sure that your A #1 crack team of mechanics has a natural born leader. A man amongst men. Someone who can take charge, get all buzzed up, then lose shit. I give you: Brian:


Addendum to the Above Pic: Brian carefully placed the 9 nuts necessary to bolt the rear fenders into the appropriate holes that he had inappropriately drilled into the Jeep. He was very careful to make sure he did that. Next, he said "Dude, we're missing one!"

He then promptly blamed the first person we all thought of: Evan. That lil turd had clearly grabbed one of the nuts and ran off with it.

"Evan, did you take one of these", he said, holding up a nut.

"Uh huh" Evan Replied. He's 2 for fuck's sake! He thinks that you wanted him to take one of them so he's trying to make you happy by saying "Uh huh."

So we spent 20 minutes looking in the grass and all over the place for them. But before we did that, I asked Brian, "Dude, are you sure you didn't accidently put one of those nuts in the two holes on top that dont need one?"

"Nahh Dude", he boldly replied.

So after the 20 minutes were up - this part is very important in your instructions, make sure you spend 20 minutes on this step - we took the fender off.

Sure enough! There it was - where it wasn't supposed to be. The exact spot ol Karn had asked Brian about earlier. Ahhh, you gotta love it. Why did this happen? This is why:


Step 7. But I digress. At this point, Brian has to take Evan home. The lil man is tired from running up and down the driveway and B is too good a dad to put our silly Jeep problems ahead of his son. He tells me, you guys can work on it some, I'll be back. So we got to work. Drinking.:


Step 8. It is very important to have a guitar handy in case some Hollywood types come by talent scouting. Also, try to make a huge mess. Men do stuff like that and it makes it look more like people are working. Dont forget to have a guy named Gary come by with his own personal case of beer - so we can all borrow them until they are gone:


Step 9. Reinforcements are inevitably handy to have around. There is an entire section of the Jacked Up Jeep Club section called "Alvy's Garage" for good reason. Alvy possesses this thing that about 95% of the guys in our club do not have: skills. Get Alvy to working on the front end - cuz the parts will not match up at all:


Step 10. After some serious bending, tearing, drilling, clamping, and cussing, you'll have your fenders on in no time. And the great part is, when they are finally on, you'll only have this many parts left over!



It's just that simple to install your very own set of River Raider Fenders. If you have any questions, comments, or feedback, keep it to your own damn self!

Cheers.

Thats the best install I've read so far. I'm just kinda upset that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Truck didn't win the race.

I had my money on Monster Mutt, but TMNT and Monster Mutt got in a nasty wreck half way down the driveway after both cutting off Toro Loco. So Loco cruised to an easy win.

That's racing though.

I am going to put the liners back in the front but I don't think I will put them back in the rear. Not sure yet but I am thinking why bother with the rear.

And before anyone else says it I will cover it, Dave and Jason like it in the rear and they bother with eachothers rears.
