What fenders are those though and how hard were they to mount?

The fenders are from a SCX10 JK. They come with a plastic piece that screws onto the fender; I used a plasti-weld brush on glue for styrene to get them in place then went around the edges with an expanding glue to make it more rigid.

It really wasnt hard to mount them at all. It also prevented me from drilling more holes in the body which is a good thing.

Starting the thread back up again. Been busy with other things the past couple months and just broke my leg mountain biking, but fortunately now I have plenty of time to post stuff.

Even though I haven't been posting there has been some MUCH NEEDED progress on The Pale JK.

Here is what I got lined up for the pan-hard set up. No binding and hopefully no bump steer still need to make a steering link once I get the servo I want.

Some more of how the CMS is set up and the three link. The CMS is going to be just a standard sized servo. I think I'm going to go with a Savox SA-1231SG. I still need to get links made to replace the stock plastic Wraith links. I'll have the front links shortened a little bit as well.

I also had to change the transmission on this build. The stock Wraith tranny was too tall to fit under the interior of the Jeep. I went with the RC4WD, R2 Black Crawler Transmission V2.

Had to go with a longer driveshaft in the rear as well. Went with the standard SCX10 MIP kit and got the dogbone for a Traxxas Summit, gonna be a perfect fit.

Also used some styrene to make a box to hide the electronics and get more of that scale look.

Decided to make the trunk box into a storage container with drawers.

Finished! Just a few finishing details and I need to take it out for a maiden run and see if there are any mechanical issues.

Looks great dude. I am also a fan of the paint color.

Have you noticed any adverse affects from the forward angle of the rear shocks?
