I don't know who all has seen the WJ that one of the IRO employees runs, but I love how he did the trimming in the rear. I'd really like to do something like this...

They finally painted it. Last time I saw pictures of it, it was multiple colors. Haha.

I like it. Its really clean. At first glance I seriously thought it was a zj for some reason.

I've thought about doing a cut like biggoofys on his zj. And also something like Greg's. Where the wheel well is cut and extended a few inches.

Just wish I could see how he filled in the gaps from the inner and outer body panels. I got a bunch 22-ish gauge stainless sheet metal that I can use to fill any larger gaps if need be.

Got a wild hair and pulled the grinder out today...







Might have taken a little much on the bottom side, but oh well. I think it turned out pretty good. I've only done the driver side as of right now. I'll get around to the other side later this weekend probably. Now the inside of the fender needs some "massaging" to get the most out of the fender trimming.

Thanks guys. I worked on getting the fender I did yesterday painted up. Figured I try that paint match spray paint from Duplicolor again after good results on my 44a diff cover.



Turned out somewhat decent. I'll probably work on it again after it cures. I don't think I'm going to tape off the other fender when it comes time to paint. The paint matches awesome, so it'll blend with the factory paint pretty well.

The trimming looks good! I had to do a lot of additional cutting of the fender bracket behind the headlights. A quick coat of black undercoat will make the fenderwell 'look bigger'.

Thanks man. Some more trimming on the inside is still on my to do list. Thinking about just getting rid of everything outside of the "frame rails".

And the inner fender definitely will get a coat of black when its all said and done. It needed it either way.

Cleaned up some more of the inner fender on the driver side and got the passenger side cut and painted. Had all the intentions of cutting everything outside the 'frame rails' but don't really know where to mount stuff after its cut off. There is a decent size box and horns on the passenger side and something for the evap system on the driver side. I've been cruising the net for pictures but haven't had any luck.

Part I'm talking about. Everything right of the frame hole I want to take off.



I feel like I'm trimming for 40s instead of 37s.

I would think that by time you have to cut that much out, you would also have to worry about contacting the headlights. You plannin on 40's now?

After looking at it for a little while, I figured everything out. Relocated the horn and evap stuff so all is well.

Right now a few coats of gloss black are drying over the whole front end. Also gave the inner fenders some new paint, too.

Eh, I don't know yet. Maybe when the 37s I got wear out. I'll have enough gear in the axles to warrant 40s if I want.

I got my front end "trimming" project finished up today:







I really like how it turned out. Now I just have to do the rear...
