Would like some instruction or recommendation for fender cutting/bending "96 XJ"
Recently posted about my added wheel spacers on my budget build. My jeep currently sits on a 3.5 Rough country lift and has 31-10.5-15's on stock rims.
I bought wheel spacers and went a bit overkill on it and find myself having to cut or fold the fenders which was a plan down the road.
Had to get wheel spacers to prevent rubbing, The inner right tire was getting some narly rub against side wall, it actually rubbed enough over two trips to flatten out the lettering on tire so I had reason for concern.
As of the time being I cannot afford the bushwacker fenders so I've been researching a bit on fender cutting and bending, I see alot of cutting and a lot of bends, People like bends to hide the sheet metal, others cut and leave it raw. I think that a bend would be the best bet due to the fact im not covering it right away. Want a few pointers on how high to cut, Should I go to the top of the wheel well or what.
MY current issue is that in flex, the rear of the front tire will hit the rear of the front fender.
I'm not rushing into this, tomorrow a start is to remove the flares and see where im at with flex, Really considering to fold the excess.
"Dont judge, cant afford fancy dancy fenders, just here for input."
Ill be collecting photos to update
