|nukinfutts||paint the inner fenders and it will look better.. but looks good now.|

|csamn2007||Looks pretty good for a JK .|

yep, i think the job was really awesome, you can always go and buy the stock fenders again.
lol you know those come off right? it is a jeep, you must understand, its not like he cut into the body with a jig or something
|01-02-2010 01:24 AM|
Eh, like he said personal preference. Once you own a jeep and have modified. I doubt you will be selling it anyways. Once you put your lift kit and stuff on it anyways any modification will decrease value. Fenders are the least problem..
Anyways, how did you mount those lights on the fender? and sonofabeach I can't see the picture of the job you did on your TJ. I have stock fenders and I wanna see what it looks like..

|BIMBY||Perfect example as to why many jeeps turn out to be rags. why would anyone hack up a beautiful looking vehicle like that? I know am gonna get flamed really bad, But I don't see the long term benefit of doing such what people call a "mod" . Hope you love that thing and plan on keeping it along time cause not only are these jeeps getting fouled up, their future value goes right in the dumper. I would never buy something like off of anyone............Let the flaming begin........|

|BeepBeepImaJeep||Im doing this soon, i have the 7" flares, so ill have lots of flares left over! im stoaked!|
|08-16-2009 11:03 PM|
|sonofabeach||Yeah I think it does looks better in person. Right now everything's filthy. I need to paint them as well. I cut it as close to the edge as I could before it curved too much. They did not have much flare to begin with. I'm happy with it.|
|08-16-2009 10:57 PM|
|Levinoss||Maybe it looks better in person but I think the JK having more flare left is what makes it look good. Just doesn't seem to have enough flare left on the TJ. =/|

After checking out this thread, today I whipped out some masking tape, eyeballed it and then hit the fender with the jigsaw. After cutting I used a file to smooth them out. I still may angle the front of the front fenders and maybe add the door protector trim but I'm sure if I need that. It took maybe 45 minutes tops.

|jlawor||Nice look. I ended up doing Xenon fenders because I had to cover the 35" 12.5 tires or I would not be able to get a State Safety Inspection.|

|Ironman||Look's great. Good job.|

I just did this to my Jeep. Took about an hour with a dremel to tape, cut, and sand everything. Came out AWESOME. looks really cool.
Definitely a good temporary fender system until I get some tubefenders
|07-08-2009 04:53 PM|
Get some shortly.
|07-08-2009 03:04 PM|
|nvr-enough||best fenders i've seen on a jk yet! i like 'em|
|07-08-2009 12:18 PM|
|Levinoss||I kinda meant full pictures with the trimmed fenders.|
|07-08-2009 08:53 AM|
looks great, i particularly like the dual cb antennas..
what did you use to trim the fenders with?
edge protectors make for a nice look..
plenty of room now..
|07-08-2009 07:37 AM|
Only have a couple on computer here at work I'll get more this afternoon.
|07-08-2009 02:21 AM|
|Tucker54||Thanks for the writeup and pics! Maybe I'll give it a shot tomorrow|
|07-08-2009 12:10 AM|
Man those are hot! Is it legal to not not have the sides of them? I wish I had a spare set so I could try those out on mine so I can switch them out if I don't like them. They make the jeep look like a 4 wheeler but more expensive. LOL
Can you take a few steps back and give us some full jeep shots? Different angles etc instead of close ups? Wonder how it would look like with TJ after market flares like bushwacker pocket style because they have a little more beef then the stock flares on my 98. Would suck spending all that money on the wackers and just cut them up.

Left the front fender support to give extra strenght
Just trimmed where was at edges
Did most of cutting with fenders on Jeep.
|07-07-2009 11:33 PM|
The rough idea
Wanted to keep as much width as possible.So cut where the fender edge rolled.And wanted to keep straight line from front view.Tried to keep as wideas steps. Round edges (trim fits better) ,kept front line to match the grill line on bottom.
|07-07-2009 11:23 PM|
I just cut them from factory fenders.
The reson I cut them
