Has anyone ever taken a set of tj/lj metalcloaks and done a highline conversion to them?

What holes need to be drilled at the firewall and are you going to keep going with the highline

The standard holes that bolt the fender to the tub at the firewall. The spacing does not work to just bolt the fender on one hole higher. I went with a fiberglass hood from team shej

Ive done it already to stock fenders i was just wondering if it was the same way or if there were major alignment issues like with the main support bracket (aka battery tray bracket)

Yes, the metal cloak fenders have their own bracket for the inner fender/ battery tray and those would need to be re-worked or new ones made.

Did a set for a buddy a year or 2 ago. Not hard but takes some fitting.
Just drilled new mount holes in the fender at the tub and mounted with 3 bolts vs 4. Cut the front gusset/ mount and rebuilt it to fit. Had to pie cut a piece of tube and weld it in to fill for the new radius at the grille. Cut hood like a std hiline and drilled new hood mounts. I'll text him for some photos but don't have any on hand.
Hi lined the rears too with a stretch. Had to heat them up and pull them to clear the 40s he wanted to run.

Made a new battery tray as well...
Oh and the innerfender has to be trimmed at the grille to clear the light

A little bit, but still trying to figure out why this hasn't been moved
Why do people whine about moving threads? As if it's too hard for you to click the back link and find another thread?

They need to make a whiners forum where all the dipshits can debate what is and what is not hardcore....

Currently, if you can answer yes to the following questions it seems to be good to go:

1) Is there fabrication involved?

2) Are you doing it yourself?

3) Did you search before posting?
