    Went wheeling for the first time since my new lift and tires this weekend (35 Mud Rover and 4 inch lift on my 87 Jimmy). I need to trim the back of the front wheel well, but the rear was fine. Actually the front started to trim itself. Lol.
    Just sharing. :laugh:

    Here is a hill we charged a bunch. I tried four times and made it once. It is just a bunch of loose shale. Around midway you just start to get buried. That is my friends 350 powered CJ with a broken driveshaft.

    The rear doesn't normally rub the sheetmetal with a mild combo. But, if you look on the inboard side of the tub it was probably rubbing there. Look for a clean spot. Not a big deal on most, but the '73 & 74 used bolts to hold in the wheel tubs and can mess up a tire w/o you knowing it. They were gone by '76, I don't know about '75.

    I am an 87 so no worries, but thanks for the heads up.

    Angle with cutoff wheels & a flapper to smooth it off :grind: , and a sawzall :hack: , and an hour per side and it'll look good and be good.

    Don't forget to BFH your inner fender in :)

    Mine "cured" itself after repeated bashing in the front.
