    I've thought about it but just don't have the tools for it lol. Did you put anything under them for reinforcement so they don't flop around?

    Here's a write-up I did for mine:

    You retain your sub-structure and that gives it reinforcement.

    You can use a jig saw. That's what I did.

    I would tape the lines so you know they are even.

    Yes. I have done about half a dozen of these and have used a jigsaw as well. It's a lot faster but you'll want to take some time to sand the edges smooth.

    After sanding the edges did you put the small rubber molding on the edges?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
