    I finally got off my ass and trimmed my rear fenders. I now have plenty of clearance for the IROK's and can finally move my axle back an inch and not worry about clearance. I cut out a lot of the quarter panel damage in the back too.

    Looks clean /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    If I cut out all the rust from the Quarter panels, fitting 49" Irocs shouldn't be a problem /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Thats what I did when I reversed into a rock about a year ago /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Godd job on the straight cut. Did you cut the rear bumper to fit or are you going to fab one up?

    Here's the best before picture I have. Bullet, I was planning on making a wrap around rear bumper like yours, that should look the best and work just as well.

    I need to get off my butt this summer and lower the Jimmy an inch and move both axles forward and rearward an inch also. That's one of many projects soon to come /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
