    someone with too many stickers and not enough front bumper? ;) j/k, it is a pretty nice truck. :laugh:

    what lip? the one on the tops of the fenders looks like the factory lip to me... and I dont see a lip on the rear-portion of the front fender... looks like standard sawzall cut action to me...

    Not sure the front, going on an angle doen't look as sharp as I have seen with a sawzall. But mabey my eyes are deceiving me. Any how if that is not a lip i am wondering how it would be possible to make a almost factory lip. If anyone has done it please speak up.

    I was thinking a line and hammer and dolly, just wondering if it is the only way to go about doing it.

    You could use a hammer and dolly but o my gosh that would be alot of work and unless you know how to use the beasts it is hard I have seen poeple take solid round like 1/8 or 3/16 and shape it and put it on the lip that is what I plan to do. As far as that truck goes I am pretty sure the lip you see is the factory one

    Do a search for Steve Frisbie and Missouri Offroad Outfitters. He cut and moved the quarter panels on the Burb that was on the cover of this months Four Wheeler. I would love to see pice of that in progress. The final product was great. Steve??

    I've done new lips on front fenders. I started with a 4" wide piece of 20 gauge, held it up to the fender edge and traced the profile. Then I made a second paralell line to the first so the profiled piece would be approx 3/4" wide.

    Then I made a couple of hundred tack welds between the edge of the fender and the edge of the lip piece, then with a sanding disc ground it to a nice edge.

    Then a week later i smoked the fender on a tree while wheeling...so now I cut em and forget em.
