Fender trimming, Please Post Your Pics!
I have decided that rather than lift Precision Guesswork ('85 CJ7) I'm going to trim the fenders. The further I've gotten into the body, the rougher I've found it to be (man is there a LOT of Bondo under the paint!) and no longer am nearly as concerned about looking factory original. Having once rolled a full size truck due to too much lift (too high center of gravity) I've decided to trim the fenders to gain the clearance I need. Initially I'll be running the 33x9.50s from the Moonlight Rambler ('74 CJ5) but plan to eventually slap on some 35x12.50s (or possibly some 34x9.50s but around that size). So, I'm hoping that those of you that have already taken this step could post your fender trimming pics both mild and wild. Flat fendering the front is pretty much a foregone conclusion, but how about in back?
Oh, almost forgot. I did do a search, but didn't find any pics. Maybe my search parameters were off. I did find an old thread of mine where we discussed lifts vs. fender trimming though! Lot of fun to re-read! Back then I was ready to order a 4" Trailmaster, then didn't....
