Re: fender trimming ( going FLAT)

check out www.samsoffroad.com. Check out sams scrapbook. the cj was in the top truck challange last year. i think the flares are cut tj flares. I have been looking around also and i think i may go that way.

Re: fender trimming ( going FLAT)

ive drooled over your fenders and rocker guards for well over a year Wayne.

incredible work.

how do the rocker guards attatch?
just bolted to the body?

also Id love to do some fenders like that, but Im just not sure I could get anywhere close to that level of crafstmanship.

does the tube from teh fenders attatch where the normal fenders would bolt to the tub?

I saw that CJ you got the idea from ( it was in a magazine years ago, blue tubing right?) and ive thought it was a cool idea since then.

thanks for the ideas!

Re: fender trimming ( going FLAT)



The picture I saw was a cover shot of a cj that was laying on it's side, don't remember which magizine.It also had it's warn8274 lowered between the frame rails, very trick.

I've attached the rockers by welding homemade brackets from the cage to the body on the enterior and sandwiching the body with the cage and the rockers. You can only do it this way if the body is mounted solid to the frame as mine is. It's also connected to the outriggers that the cage is mounted to, I've skidded over rocks with both tires on that side off the ground with only gouges in the rockers.

Because of the shackle reverse I needed to move the back of the fenders opening rearward by about 4", this also called for the fenderwell to be cut out and relocated further back.

Hey Ozark,
Take a look at my new psot and my pictures. You will see a view of my cut fenders.

Re: fender trimming ( going FLAT)

Here are mine, did it with a Dremal Tool. They do lose some of there stiffness after being cut.
