trimming the front fender for a bumper

Ive got a JCR bumper waiting for paint, and I know that the front fender and stock trim will need to be trimmed. Now there are a ton of how tos on trimming out for bigger wheels, but I havent seen anything for just the front area.

does it need to be cut and folded to last properly, with a bumper that has hard side protection, or is it fine to cut and just be 2 pieces of metal sitting there?

Just cut along the top line of your bumper. Nothing needs to be folded.


lockers don't work unless you have Rubicon stickers
