Modifying inner front fenders -

Does anyone have any pics of their modifications to the inner front fender wells, that gets rid of the bumps and allows for more up-travel with larger tires on a low COG rig? I have seen the TNT customs inner fender replacement panels, but am looking for more pics and ideas!

Hammer fold / flatten the pinch seam in the rear area and call it done.

Re: Modifying inner front fenders -

dktool - I have already done what you are talking about awhile ago. - My 37's hit at the inner fender at the front and a little at the rear, and def can not turn while compressed since it hits the bump in the front. I have it bump stopped right now, and limits the up travel. I know others in the group have modified the inner fenders to enable more travel up for big meats. Looking for what they have done.

Re: Modifying inner front fenders -

When I did the rust repair on the floor pan, I went ahead and cut the firewall back. I cut the pinch seam right in between the spot welds. I weld the cut line closed. I also Frenched the front of the wheel opening. I'm currently running 4" and 33s with plans to go to 35s.
