But then again it would vary depending on whether or not the Jeep was lifted and what size lift.
Set fender in place, mark, trim, and repeat. Once it fits well, make the cut-outs "pretty". Add a fresh coat of paint at the cut areas and to the shock towers (they get scratched) and you're ready to install. Mine took less than an hour per side. They could have both been done well enough to fit in 15 minutes (mine look factory).

Well, the time has come to sell my Wrangler. I've put an add on Craigslist but I figured I's mention it here in case anyone was interested.

Cut and paste

Little bit of time with a grinder and a welder!

Can you post up a photo with the hood shut, and somewhat of a side profile? Also, I am curious... Is there a reason you did not try to graft more if the CJ grille in order to remove that YJ "bend" the grille bars have? This is a harder mod to pull off and have it look right, yours looks pretty good! I would love to see how the shape comes together with the hood on.

Sold my YJ/CJ this weekend. It was a really nice Jeep and I enjoyed driving it for the year I owned it. The best part, though was doing the CJ front end conversion. Now I've got more time (and money) to make progress on my CJ7 restoration.
