    who has big meats, lil\' lift, lots of flex, and pics of fender trimming?

    I am in the process of hacking my fenders back so my 39.5 TSLs will fit on my rig when it is flexin'. I have 5" of suspension lift.. and 1" of body lift. Long shocks up front and revolvers in the back mean that I am gonna be pretty dang flexy when all is said and done. Anyway, the question is: who has pics of their rig which has a small lift (like me) and 39-40" tires? I dont have my tires mounted yet... just looking for some guidance on how much I'll have to trim. I know what the UAV looks like with its trimmed-for-37s fenders... and thats usefull info, but whether or not SF had to trim more for his new 39.5s would be even more useful. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    We had a power bump here this morning and it probably took my server down. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif When I get home I'll reboot and it should be back up. around 12:30 Mountain time....

    Poor shot, but I don't have a side shot since the rest was trimmed up.

    Best thing to do is mount them, and then flex em', then note the areas that are rubbing or about to rub, and mark for cutting...then hack away /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif.

    Or, wait a couple weeks and I may have some pics for yah /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif.

    Re: who has big meats, lil\' lift, lots of flex, and pics of fender trimming?

    yeah, testing is definitely the best way to do it... problem is I still have to swap axles, mount the tires... and then test them without mom/dad finding out (they dont like me buying parts when I am in school! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif ) before I can do any real world testing. I wanted to do most of the fender trimming work now while I am waiting for my D60 to be out of the shop. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    anyway, thanks much guys, again, for the pics. Definitely helps. If anyone has more, keep 'em comin'! I'd be especially interested in a pic which showed a closeup of how the tail end of the rear fenders were done. I wanted to cut it all the way up to the trim, but there seems to be all kinds of structural stuff that supports the body in there... didnt wanna cut anything important. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
