Yeah. It's great. Got a funny noise in the front but I think it's my SS or the driver side shock going out.

You did a great job on the fender lines. I have seen some really bad cuts in my time, yours look perfect, this is the line it should have had from the factory. Now, get brave and do the rear

thanks for the tips on how to do it! I agree that it should be the factory line. the back is starting to scare me but I think it will be the next thing I do unless jarrod (WJwheelin) can get me a good price with the body shop that did his.. we'll see though.

to Kodiak and Dusk..
this is such an easy and cheap mod! I would recommend it! if you want to know how I did it or what I used to do it just let me know. it's so easy and it look maybe 5 hours with lots of breaks because it's hot as **** here lol (that time includes removing the fenders)

went to test the fender cut and 35's. had minor rubbing on the front (disco'd) and also dropped my passenger coil again.. need to get the retainer fixed ASAP. also looks like I need around 5.5-6" of bumpstop up front.
the rear had very minor rubbing on the rear bumper although the sway bar was still connected. forgot to measure the rear bumpstop.. will measure it after I cut the rear fenders.
also found out my wife's idea of guiding me up the trail means lets flex this **** out to the max!

I'm still debating on trimming, I feel that I need a gas tank lift more than anything. But no one has really done a lot of pictures of the trim process do I figure I'd just throw it out there

Haha right on!!! I learned a lot from tinkering with Hondas, they were soooo easy compared to what we're into now haha
