Anyone out there have pics of their front fenders they have cut? I need to cut mine for some clearance and can't decide of the best way to go about this.

Re: cutting fenders?

I don't have picks of the front only that back , same deal though . I will scan them in an hour or so and post them . I was able to fit 31's without a lift so with a lift you should get a fair bit of room in there .

I think Oilburner has done some extensive cutting on his. You may try a search on this BBS or try to contact him.

Re: cutting fenders?

Well here is the rough job I did on mine . All I did was cut the lip back so the top of the wheel well was flat . BBBy cutting the curved bit into 1 1/2 strips and flattening it out and welding it back to the cut back side . This left small cuts which I filled in with bog ( don't ask , was in a rush to get wheeling ) . It would be best to cut back the inner guard 2 inch and weld in a new strip of skin , next time .

Re: cutting fenders?

I didn't have to cut mine at all , Illinois road salt took care of that . In fact , I have some neat clearance in the firewall that opened up in the last week . I can almost hear it rusting at night if it's quiet...
