Fender sag....

Ever since I got my TJ, I notice everyday how my fenders sag. I'm not talking about the plastic fenders. I'm talking about the actual steel. Any ideas how I can bend them back up in place? No big deal just one of the things that bothers me. Thanks.

Somebody must of sat on them. Take a bottle jack and place it on a front tire. Use a piece of 2x4 for under the fender where the hood latch support is. Carefully jack the fender straight. Worked for me....while I still had them.

Don't have any pictures at the moment. I'll have totals them tomorrow in daylight. But I think I'll try the bottle jack. Sound like it'll work just fine!

I found an old pic of how my passenger fender that was bent down just a bit. It bugged me too.

When I went to my MCE flat fenders, they also needed some sag adjustment after install. I used the same method under the hood latch support to straighten them right up.



Saggy after MCE install


Still straight, years later.

Both of mine are angled slightly down and out, one a result of sliding into a rut and the other who knows. Get some gloves, pull up, close enough.
