    Went to trim my fenders today /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif to make room for my 39.5's and started cutting into my front fenders and found out that the fenders are tied into my fender wells. And if I take out the fender wells then my battery rack and coolant overflow tub goes too. I know I could remount them but is there any other way to do this and keep my fender wells intact? Any pic and detailed info would be appreciated.

    Jah, I was looking at mine today... thinking that I can get rid of some rust and trim for bigger tires all at once /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif ... up front seemed like it had a LOT less room to trim than in back. The wheel wells in back seemed HUGE in back in comparison to the inner fenders up front.

    So for a serious fender hack job, does one yank or re-do the inner fenders up front?

    Dont cut them... use a big ol' hammer and beat them back to where ever you cut the outer ones to.

    I'm re-doing my front's inners.

    Well, I'm cutting them down so its mostly the top and the start of the sides, then finishing it off with rubber matting.

    Lose the inner fenders. They are overrated. I spent all week in the snow, sand, water, and mud and yet my engine is alost spotless.

    Yeah, unless all you wheel is rock... you need inner fenders. Come wheel the places I do and say you dont need inner fenders.
