Correct me if im wrong teezy, but the reason he chopped his fenders is because he doesnt plan on running 32s on his rig for forever. 33s or possibly 35s are in the future.

True, but the whole point of us cutting was to keep a relatively lower COG with bigger meats. I know you can stuff up 35's with cutting the pinch seams and what not but now the wheel well is totally opened up and 35s will stuff under there like a charm without any rubbing out on the trail.

yeah i hear what your sayin but these zj wheel wells are pretty tight and now i dont have to worry about anything. also with what scott said i am not planing on goin much if any higher and i have already dented my fenders by stuffing my 32's, 35's would tear them apart

the doors were pretty spontaneous, originally a while back i saw a write up on how to replace the door pins since mine were all worn out and the door was a little wobbley. But i have been goin doorless pretty much all summer but it was always such a pita to hold them up and bolt them back in especially by myself. so i kind of wanted to make it as easy as wrangler doors and have them just slide out, and i am making some tube like doors right now so those can just slide on and off real easy.
