in another thread i have been asked for info on hom i did my highline, i had another thread on a different old forum but seems it has been moved/deleted. so i'll write up here a brief description, i will let the pics do most of the talking. if you have questions feel free to ask.
the start, 34" LBT's with just a 1" BL and 5/8 boomerangs, not much room for flex
measure and mark, tried 3/1/4" first but 3" turned out to be the magic number
new holes in fenders where they mount to grill, on the back end where they mount to the firewall i had to drill new holes 3" down from the factory holes. i have seen nicer ways of doing the front of the fenders since i did mine but i just 'massaged' them with a hammer to make them fit
one raised...big difference
the begining of the 'massaging' to make the front fit. this was later smoothed out and then filled with some body filler to get a not so close to factory finish
marking the hood 3" up, measure twice cut once
hood cut and i used some plastic edging to cover the cut edge
fender after undercoating them and re-painting the inside of the inners
one side bolted up
painted undercoat where rocker guards would eventually go to disguise the 3" gap at rear of the fender
both bolted up
alot more room for the 34's now
i have had several people look at the front of my jeep and say "is ther something different?"
all this in less than a day. while i had it all apart i cleaned up the firewall and painted it as well. once i mounted the new sliders they covered that 3" gap at the bottom of the rear of the fender.
