    JLU rear pinch weld mod

    Sorry if its been asked but I have searched on this forum and all over the net. Plenty of writeups on the JK rear pinch weld but can't find anyting on the JL.

    Anyway,

    I have a 2018 Wrangler JLU Rubicon with a 2.5 metalcloak gamechanger lift and running 37's. I was rubbing on the bottom rear inner fender so I removed the mud flap piece and bracket. What it exposed was the rear pinch weld. While it is more rounded than sharp, I would love to cut or this piece out of the way. What I don't want is to cut and have the two pieces pull apart and have to be welded back. Anybody done this? Seems to be a little thicker than the JK seam and I am not sure if bending it without cutting is possible. Just need it pushed back a little.

    TIA

    Trimming is not required with 37's.

    Now that I have removed the mud flap and bracket, trimming may not be required. I will flex it out again to check. I know my 37's were eating that plastic mud flap pretty good. If anyting is needed I will just make adjusments to the bump stops in the rear. I am fine everywhere else.

    thanks

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.
