Mudderoy like! Must have some, if I get the job offer :(

Hey do they get slippery when wet? I could just see my wife or girls taking that 2.5 foot drop to the pavement getting in.

Okay, to answer some of these questions:

Currently, I do not have diamond-plate door protectors. Sorry.

Slippery? No more than the plastic door sills.

Black? Hmmmm. I will have to see if the aluminum will hold a finish that will withstand some abuse.
If you make any headway with the door protectors or the black let us know please :D

I was talking to my wife today about the metal diamond plate door sills being slippery, and it dawned on me. We don't step on them to get in or out anyway!

I just placed an order for a set. Are they here yet!!!! ;)

OMG! Why would you want to paint or powder coat these things?!?! I think some of you guys don't like having a "pretty" Jeep. It's ok you know.

Its basically a personal taste thing.

Every set is hand-made and polished by yours truly. No cold heartless machine cranking out set after set, but rather a fellow XJ owner/fan/lover.

IF I wouldn't install them on MINE...they don't go out to YOU.

Its not easy creating in an unforgiving medium like aluminum.

Oh yeah and Mudderoy...yours are out TOMORROW.

I have so many new items "in the works" I cannot get any completed.
Not easy to design, build/fabricate, acquire materials, AND keep prices low.
But, I think I am doing a good job so far.

I enjoy the "work" and love reading the comments about it. :pop:
Thankfully all have been :thumbsup:

I have had several requests for NON-Cherokee parts :confused:
Guess, I will have to start getting my butt in gear.
Anything higher than 4HI ???

Brakeline Extender Bracket

Keep you informed? Okay.
You all have heard about my rear brakeline extender bracket.

And seen this pic of the prototype on Lil Red:



Well after a long time of designing and CNC milling, I have arrived at a production prototype. This design repositions the mounting point of the stock XJ brakeline UP 2" and FORWARD 2" and ANGLES it upward 8.5*, regaining brakeline slack lost from 3-3.5" lifts.



Why not just get longer brakelines??? Anyone ever TRIED to remove the fittings from 15 year old steel lines? What happens. TWIST/KINK/BREAK. Then you do this....:brickwall:

Pictured is an unfinished unit. They will get my favorite finish...black epoxy.
I designed this bracket to re-use the axle-mounting bolt with the built-in breather tube (as shown in Lil Red's pic). There will be hardware supplied to affix the brakeline to the top-end.
Axle-end has the correct radius that mates to axle tube, as does the top for the brakeline.
Stock XJ steel lines along the axle have enough length to allow repositioning.
Constructed of SOLID steel. No aluminum to crack.
