I left them on the jeep, taped off how i wanted it cut, and then cut it with a dremel and rotary wheel. Then i used a utility knife to trim the burned plastic off. I used a hacksaw to cut the supports, then went to advance auto parts and bought some black uchannel door molding and put it on the fenders.

It looks good, but sooner or later you are going to have an issue with your tail gate.

Haha i knew someone was gonna say that, that rear spare is actually a rubicon pulloff, it just looks as big as the others because of the angle of the picture. I wont be able to afford a 5th 35 until feb. I wont buy a 35 for the spare until i get a tire carrier on the rear.

You really can't tell from the picture, especially since you have the same wheel! How do you like the Bestop rack? What kinds of things do you use it for?

Yeah I'd actually be interested in what you think of it [bestop rack]? Do you use it when you're wheeling or just long trips and things?

I love it man, i generally haul a big cooler and my camping equipment, and ive had it completely loaded down and wheeled some super rough trails and had no issues. I would suggest going to an auto parts store and buying some cargo netting. Overall though it was worth the 200 bucks

Very nice. I think I'm going to trim mine now. I am going to leave my marker lights on at first. I'll take a pic & see what you think. I guess I'll know right away if it's going to look gay or not.

One thing, IMHO I think your Jeep would look much better with the rear bumper chopped. With the rear fender trimmed it really sticks out.

Did you leave the inner fenders on? Did you have to trim them?
How much lift do you have?

Very nice jeep tho. Great Job & thanks for sharing!!

Thanks for the feedback, i didnt bother trimming the bumper because im buying an aftermarket one in march. I left the fenderwells on in the front, and took the rear off. Yes the inner fenders must be trimmed. I have a 2 inch spring spacer lift.
