    Looks good!

    I predict some more trimming in the future, after a wheeling trip or two to find where it still rubs.

    Clean man ! Enjoy the fenders while they last . The 37s eat them up if you upsize later

    Fender trim turned out really nice looking! I like how you kept the side marker lights.

    Shifted the front of the Evap over one hole (2”) and drilled a new hole. Done.

    About an 1 1/8” off the front...

    ... and 1 1/2” off the rear.

    Rather than remove the side marker.. I cut it along the same line... I’ll fill the hole in the light wIth some right stuff RTV... it’s barely noticable.. I still have some fine tuning to do, but I like how it came out.

    The fender trim looks pretty good. I had the same dilemma but opted for 1/2 inch more bumpstop. I'm running 315s and 4 inch backspace so my tires probably didn't rub as much as yours.

    When I measured the distance from the bump stop to the bump holder, and compared that to the fender gap... I figured I had plenty of room.... I didn’t take into consideration that when the axle pivots the tire goes higher. Glad I checked before hitting the trail... I would have ripped some shit off for sure.

    I lost a piece of the plastic fender support bracket on the front inner fender my first trip out. That seemed to fix the worst of the rubbing. I added a little more bumpstop after that but haven't had the chance to test it.

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.
