i sure didnt like to see her like this
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/tubes/P9090174.jpg

stock inner and outer fenders removed
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/tubes/P9090177.jpg

the new tubes are longer than the stock so in order to keep the inner fender looking stock some big pain in the ass mods were needed

thank god i have a freind who is good at this kinda stuff

so we cut away the fender until this was all that was left
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/tubes/P9090178.jpg

then we welded the 2 inner to the outer
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/tubes/P9090183.jpg

we needed to fill the gap somehow and there was no sheet metal around sooooooooooo

Very Nice. Couldn't get any straighter than that! So how long are those fenders going to stay flat? From the pics I've been lookin at, I'd be more afraid of you guys runnin into me than the rocks[cheers]

Looks like you turned your Jeep into a heat score. From the pictures your tires are now not covered…..was that an oops or did you plan to have stubby’s like that?

I guess they will be staying on all the time, I don't think Wendy's parking lot has a trail head.

I'd like to see what it looks like with the mud flaps on....why not build the fenders wide enough to cover the wheels...if the fender is built strong enough they will take a hit from a tree
