    Well I finally got around to trimming my front fenders.
    It went rather easy, looks really cheesy with the stock front bumper but that's not long for this world anyway.

    I'm thinking about some 4" springs this summer and then finding some 35" tires for her. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I recently got tired of hearing my fenders rattle and groan as the BFGs flexed, so I took the plunge and hacked away.

    I cut the outer portion of the bracing, and bent the inner fender to match. It makes for a good temporary fix until I pull the entire inner fender and build a new one.
