Thanks everyone. Im really happy with them. I need to take a pic with the backs done to now.

And I used a reciprocating saw with a metal blade since it cuts a little cleaner and slower. the fronts need to be removed to do it by your self. I removed them and the fender brace and placed each one in a vice to cut it. And dont forget to tap them off first and make sure they match each other

I might end up doing this to mine. While on vacation I had someone hit drivers side fender and corner of stock bumper. Hard to believe someone hit it and didn't even leave a note.

Anyone know if you can trim the painted fenders without chipping them?

The finders that are painted have a mix in the paint to keep them from chipping and cracking when flexed. I think you can cut them and not worry about them chipping.

Good to know. Thank you! You can get painted fenders without having to get the painted hardtop on the '13s, so depending on which color I go with, I might get the painted fenders.

Very nice! Now how about one of the undercarriage? :brows:

Yeah I was wanting to go with black, but think I'll give it a run with the sahara painted ones and see how it looks!

Here are some close ups for those who wanted them. I also painted the inside of the rear fender well black so it didn't stand out so much
