Fender trimming video for the new guys...

Assuming this is good to post here... If not, that's OK too.

We just did this video on XJ fender trimming. Yes, there are other videos on the subject, but I still find (after 22 years) that this subject remains very misunderstood among those who haven't ventured down this path.

This video answers a lot of the questions and concerns I've received over the years regarding lift, trimming, larger tires, JK wheel & spacer combos and much more. Hopefully, this will help some of the newer XJ guys that want to fit bigger tires!
Thanks!

Nice videos. What's the name of that 3M fender tape? If you said it, I must've missed it. I've got a 3 year old and a one year old running around. Lol

I liked and sub'd btw

Thanks!

The product is called Protekto-Trim. It's made by Cowles products.

We keep it in stock for XJ fender trim projects. Been using it for over 20 years now.

Great video Dirk! I trimmed my fenders this way as you described it over the phone. I've had zero rub issues doing it this way. I bet you have explained it thousands of times. Now you can reference to your video.


Looking forward to more videos.

I was able to move the stock flares up to keep the stock look going and cover the tires more. Without the flares, anything I drove through was all over the Jeep.

There are still so many topics that are widely misunderstood in the jeep mod world.

It's taken over 20 years, but we're finally stepping into the video age. I've gotta long list of tech stuff I wanna do...

Yep. We had some music in the original video that was copyrighted, so we had to relaunch the video.
