Re: Front inner fender trimming

I have done both ways. Tnt inner fenders and just cut on the fold and bent it up and rewelded it with a small filler piece. Tnt turned out cleaner but cut and weld gave more room

How much space difference was it?

Thanks baja!
That is one clean build! Tnt has no info on the battery box so I planned to move it to the hatch, but yours looks like it works well enough. I'll probably shoot for something similar.
What is your bump stop setup with those 37s? And your wms width if you know it as I think you have a Dana 44 right?

Re: Front inner fender trimming

Lets see em!
*couldn't find the other brand... i think it was a smaller shop and prolly not as sexy. Sucky. The jk crowd has hundreds of different offerings with pretty designs and all kinds of options :/

Front inner fender trimming

They're ordered, when I get them I'll send pics of the process. Just don't laugh at the welds!

Front inner fender trimming

Then this happened.... Dear lord is there a bunch of spot welds..... The new panels are substantially more ridgid than what is being cut out. Not that this is structural, but beefier is always better in my mind.

Re: Front inner fender trimming

SlowXj, in the front I have the daystar extended upper bump stop and then I have 1 1/2 hockey pucks at the bottom. I am running the G2 Dana 44 in the front, and that is stock width. The 37's are mounted on Method 17x9 beadlocks with 3.5" backspacing.

Front inner fender trimming

Sorry guys life happens and I haven't gotten to touch it since the above pictures. Hoping this weekend I can get it together.
I have a similar bump setup baja, daystar+1 puck. These 35s barely rub the coil tower at full flex with 3.75 backspacing.
