    Below is an original quote from another thread on this forum. At first I was looking at the FRONT end of the fender and admiring the trim job. But then I took notice of the back of the fender.

    Is that trimmed too? If so, can I get really really close up pic of that area. I want to see how you worked the fender trim to look so good. I want to run 35's on my DD with 3.5" of lift. I really don't want to lift any more and the 35's will hit a little with everything in stock trim. But moving the axle forward (redrilling) and doing this trimmming would be the best. BUT, I want to keep my chrome fender trim and such cause she's a perrrrty truck and all.

    Thanks if you can offer some advice.

    Here's a couple more pics. The rear of the fender is trimmed substantially.

    I cut and re-welded the inner fender mounting brackets to gain more clearance and to keep the inner finders.

    Where is the moulding from? I would like to add some to mine, just not chrome.

    It was the factory molding that I persuaded to fit the new curves.

    Thanks, The first pic shows the aluminum rings. But those only lasted a couple trips out before they were thrashed.

    I then got the steel rings, but MRT uses the bright orange powder coating. Red and Orange don't go together, especially in Oklahoma. So I had them coated with red to match the rest of the rig...
