    Hey guys, I hate the look of a body lift so this is what I did to hide the gap above my rear tires:

    <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/gallery/BigTex-Mean-Machine/abd>http://coloradok5.com/gallery/BigTex-Mean-Machine/abd</a>

    I just used some wide rubber strips I found at the hardware store and also some of those black headliner "buttons" from Pep Boys. It was either that or pay 50 bucks for a set.

    looks cool. I'm doing the same thing on the Willy's. it really helps in cutting done on the mud going every where..easier clean up. and looks 100% better then that ugly gap.[​IMG]

    Looks good enough to be put on the Product reviews board.

    It's a wheelbase thing, you wouldn't understand.

    Not to sound dumb, but what kind of material did you use and where can you pick it up? I have been wanting to do this to my truck as well, looks much better. Thanks

    Hey Mike, good question. The material I used I found at a local hardware store. It is actually a "roll" of rubber material and I purchased about 6 feet of it. It is about 12 inches wide so I cut it right down the middle so that I could use each strip on each side. I don't know exactly what it is used for but it is pretty thick and durable. Then I bought the black plastic "buttons" at Pep Boys. They are what is used to fasten a headliner I believe. They sell them in packs of 6 I think. I just drilled some small holes in the inner fender wells and punched some holes on the rubber sheets and then pushed the buttons through. It was very easy. If you have any questions, I'd be more than happy to help.
