    I would keep them on till you get new ones, your tires throw alot of thing about and if it picked up something heavy and let it go into your engine compartment it could rip thing off... /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I finaly took mine out about a week ago. I am still a bit woried about mud and rock's getting were they shoud'nt, but I like them gone for now at least becase of less weight, easier acsess to lots of things and there wasnt much left of them anyway.

    The problem I have is all the stuff I have mounted to them. I have a M1009 CUCV so I have two batteries on the pass. side inner fender and I don't have any other palce to put them in the engine compartment. Have any of you guys tried using drag racing tubs? I know they are made of pretty thin sheetmetal, but with a little bracing they could be OK. What about sectioning out a 55 gal drum or a piece of road culvert?
