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?

Im the guy who makes new gauges, check out our gallery at

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

lockers don't work unless you have Rubicon stickers
