    I was thinking about running without doors this summer and i already asked this on the other board but i twas wondering what your guys experience was with taking off doors and putting them back on.

    Also i was interested in doing some fender trimming however i neither the tools nor experience to do it. Would anyone be willing to help for a 24 pack?

    I have a compressor and air body saw and air grinder but I live in Lodi. I think Danville is a couple of hours away. My dad thought I was crazy for cutting up my fenders, but he thinks that building a trail rig is a waste of money. Who is the crazy one?

    I have the tools. Just haven't done it yet. If you want to come down to Hollister one day.. We could do your truck and my trail rig..We could practice on my trail rig first and then go on to yours...Dan

    Fender trim is pretty easy... I used a sawz-all and a grinder to smooth the rough cuts. Next time your Fremont stop by,and I'll trim your fender's /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
