    After I trimmed, and "tubed" them haha, I painted them with a cheap bedliner paint with a roller. Haven't gotten to scratch them against anything yet though. I was able to get a set from a Sahara and scuff them up. Not going to say they look great, but not bad. Will have to take some pictures and post.

    Those don't look bad at all. What did you use for the tubing?

    Opinions?
    Pretty sure my fender trim is just like yours. New Jeep owners ask all the time, what kind of fenders do you have.

    When I first saw the thread title, I thought “oh no, someone is cutting up Fender guitars”...

    Even the pop up ads on my phone show Fenders guitars on this thread...

    May not be for everyone... but I only removed about 1 3/8” of material from the fenders... I even cut the turn signal light... gives it more of a stock look.

    Yup. And still rubs very slightly in a hard flex.

    3/4" pvc pipe. I bent it with a heat gun. Left the flares on the jeep when doing so. That helped me get them close the original shape of the flare. I cut a slot in the pipe after it was bent to slip over the flare and used white paintable silicone as adhesive. Happened to have a dremel bit the correct size.

    That's really creative. Looks pretty good.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
