I want to try to fit the biggest tires on my 95 yj with the least lift as I can. Right now I am running a RE 4.5" lift and revolver shackles. So I am wondering if anyone has some pictures of where they have trimmed their fenders for bigger tires.

So, you just want it too look good on the street or you want you be a ble to flex it out? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">...I'd say maybe 35's max? I have 4in springs SOA and a 2in body and have cut away my fenders back to the firewall and my 38X14 SX's barely fit. Maybe it's just those SUPER flexy Pro Comps! <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/massey.gif" border="0">

I want to flex as much as I can but I need to pass inspection so I can't go to extreme.

Here's a pic of my yj, with cut fenders.. Its a daily driver of 100 miles a day, I did it to help me fit the 35's better and flex better.



we used a 4" grinder with a cutting wheel to do it all.. looks better in person. Hope it helped,

Mud-
I'm not sure I follow. Can you cut too much to pass inspection? Ask Belly Up he would know if you would pass or not I think.

I know Bert we have gone riding a few times together. I will give him a buzz. I think that my biggest problem will be putting flares back on. The tires can't stick out. Mine do now but I think that if I make it to radical I will draw the attention of some of Bert's buddies <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

Before spending any dinero on TJ flares, try stretching your YJ ones first. I think you will be suprised how far they will stretch.

I'd probably take them off then draw out your intended cut line(Or use tape). See how many of the original mounting holes you can retain. See how many will have to be redrilled. My real clearence issues were at the firewall, and both the front and rear of the rear wheel well.

Loppy has said he just zip ties the fenders on rather than bolting them in place now. I don't worry bout it anymore. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> Great feelin I must say having a DD.Lemeknow what cha think of these ideas.

Great!

He is slow. I think the dept had to fill it's quota for "SPECIAL" officers when he was hired. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">
