    not bad at all! you can smooth out the lines where it transitions from stock fender to trimmed fender with a gringer. i like the front part!! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif check out my webshots or members page for pics of mine.

    Looks pretty good...I think you will have to trim the rear of the front fender a little more though. She will rub when flexing.

    That looks pimp! I think you may have just inspired me to finally toss the bumper and hack at the fenders. But I am gonna have to agree that you need to take a little off the backside of the front fenders so you don't rub when flexing.

    Looks great to me. I like how you cut the front all the way up to the side marker lights, gives it that nice pre-runner truck look which I like.
