    HELP!

    I did the "MAJOR" fender trim this weekend, but I am worried the structrual fender bolt (bottom bolt)

    I am running 39.5 TSL's with a 6" lift. the truck is a '77.

    It looks like it will puncture the tire if i let it be, i can't pound it much flate, but i am hesitant to cut the fender bolt off for clearence. the truck goes to get painted in the morning so help is needed quick! I am supposed to drop it off at the shop in 11 hours!

    Thanks!

    You can still cut out that area with the bolt. It'll be fine. You don't need that.

    Zakk's too humble to say it.....but he came by with the truck last night (New 39.5 TSLs and serious fender trim) and it looks GNARLY!!!! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Those tires really set it off, and give it an "in-your-face" attitude. It definitely stands apart from all the pretty SUVs around this area.....and probably scares them out of the fast lane too!!!! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I just thought I'd share.....If Zakk lets me, I'll shoot a few pics of it next time so you guys can decide for yourself.

    pics will be coming soon. Msquared's brother got 3 hrs of cutting carnage and it will be painted a simple black.

    it will also be smoothed out, only the door handles and tailgate handle being present. A CB antana will be off the rear right, just below the taillight.

    I think some engine work is next, followed by a cage. Problably tackling the suspension last since i have serious problems with my inner stuggle between drivability and off road monster.

    BTW, i appreciate the candor (sp?) Boss, i took no offense/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    So, did you take the truck today?

    The footage has been delayed slightly by paying work, exams and classes... sorry....

    I'd call you, but I heard you don't have a phone....
