Replacing the passenger side valve cover gasket. So not fun... I have a little extra help from my GF. Then cutting up the front fenders and taking the front bumper cover off. Getting ready for my real bumper!

Finished that valve covers. Remove heater hoses completely and take off the battery/and battery box and remove the oil fill tube. That should be enough space. Also get a good u joint for your socket wrench.

Got the privilege of cutting my fenders today! Here are some pictures. Turned out really nicely.



























Turned out great! I hope I dont rub at ALL tomorrow when I go wheeling. Im leaving in the morning and will most likely have videos and pictures up late tomorrow night.

Hahaha. As a spacer to hold the fender. I accidentally cut the fender mount off... So I got creative and used those to hold the fender good and sturdy.

I haven't seen a line like that before with less cut behind the tires. It looks really good, you did a great job.

Yes lots of space! And you kinda have too. If you start to cut more behind the tire you end up cutting off the mount that holds the fender on. It's bigger tire time!!
