Cut the fender with a 3" grinding wheel, and the flare with a jigsaw. Finished it with some door edge trim and it looks factory clean Smile

Just need to figure out what to replace the inner liner with.....

No before pictures. This is as close as to the repairs as you get. At this distance and poor lighting (and also squint) , you can barely tell there was any damage done.

Very Happy

Hell I can run just about every trail at URE without even touching a skid plate with 32's

If you wheel the 35's the chance for breakage increases exponentially

Is Nick making you challenge your whole belief system?

I can't afford 35s, so I can't have all of you guys I wheel with go to 35s.

LOL, I wasn't going to post that one, but I felt bad because I never have video of you. Plus There isn't much video out there for the Gulches that identify the trails. So it was also for informative purposes.

I am not sure 35s would have solved that problem. You were on there pretty good. At one point your front two tires were off the ground moving back and forth.

I also created another inch of clearance by moving the BudBuilts up. They actually killed the clearance I had. I'm going for that hill again next time out! Smile
