Ohhhhhh I like that!!!

The easiest way to do a part like that would be to make the entire fender as a single piece to avoid cutting into the existing fender.

Not sure if a do-it-yourself kit would be as popular. Only the more adventuresome of us (Swampy where are you hiding?) have the cahunas to take a saw to their bodies.

Any of you ZJ and WJ owners like that WKJeep side-vent design? It's a beautiful piece. I'm thinking the bolt-in fenders would run $300-500 for the pair. Vents alone would probably run $100 or so...but you'd have to glass them in and repaint your fenders anyway so the end cost might be around the same.

Here's what I came up with:

Here's another idea I'd like to toss back into the ring now that I have the manufacturer to pull it off successfully.

Remember my 2004 WJ lower bumper on a ZJ. Any interest?
