    So I removed my inner fenders last night to make room for some bigger meats. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Do I need to brace the core support. It seems like there isn't much supporting it with just the cut fender. I'm affraid it might twist alot when I flex.

    Put them back in or there's going to be crap all over your engine all the time.

    Only time I ever went "true wheeling" was without one inner fender skirt. (the rubber things at the bottom of the inner fender)

    Underhood STILL has the dirt/mud all over. Not enough that I care, but it was OBVIOUS how big a difference something that small made. I didn't even spin my tires!

    Do you want to get rid of them? Mine is pretty rusted on the driver's side and Blazers without a lot of rust in them are scarce as hen's teeth around here.
