Lets See Your Custom Fenders

Getting tired of the stock fenders look. I removed them for the time being but I want to put them back on eventually. Ive seen this done before but I was wondering if anyone else has done it.

The photo is not of my jeep. This person raised the fenders up higher and cut the fenders and quarter panels. Is this a smart idea?

Homemade Hi-line setup
There is a two inch cut out of each side of the hood, and the fenders raised two inches:

Just finished the fenders. Cut about an inch off of each fender and curved them at the ends. Also I cut the quarter panels on an angle. Im still debating whether or not to raise the fender flare up to be flush with the quarter panel and cutting straight across the quarter panel to make it look like tj flares. What do you guys think?

Mother of god..... that looks amazing! Did you tint the upper inner corners of your headlights to make them look angry?

I used plastidip for the angry eyes. I just removed the grille and bezel and used blue painters tape across the light. Sprayed 4 coats and its good to go. Definitely cheap and worth it, and if you dont like it you can peel it right off.

Heres a picture I took today of the current condition of my jeep. Custom cut/ painted fenders and quarter panels to give it more flex room when the bigger tires come in.

Like myillwillinc, I decided to just tube 'em out.

Got the tube from Jeeptubes.com, and some scrap from a wall locker.

Cut existing fenders to make them flat, bolted on sheet metal, and coated them with por-15
