    It has always bugged me that the rear wheel well is lower than the front, this makes the Blazer look like its aways sagging. Is there any detail pics or drawings or designs on how to trim the rear to match the front? Has anyone done this jus to do it and not trimmed the fronts? Any pics would be cool (Im not a member yet, so if you could Imbed the pics with instead of linking them, I appreciate it.)


    :D

    the rear is about 2" lower, just put a bunch of blue painters tape around the fenders and hold your finger along the edge of the fender and the pen two inches away so that your pen is always the same distance from the edge and "trace" the fender. Then just cut away.

    No, I was talking about the REAR wheel well only, Id leave the front alone. The rear is made lower, so it makes the truck look like its sagging.
