I ordered some TNT Phantoms and just got them today:





A rough shot of what tire coverage will look like:

Me too, it's a chore getting everything off the inner fender and taking the stock fenders off. I worked on it some today, couple more bolts on each side and the stock fenders are off.

Red, I like the body color look better for fenders and corners.

Got the passenger side up today and drilled the holes to mount everything to it. Took it off to paint. Also had to trim my rocker guard and make a little notch in the slider to clear the tube. Itís too hot working in the driveway to get too much done, I should have done this in the garage.

Got the Driver side flare off and the Phantom on and moved everything around so it'll fit under the hood. This is the time I really wish I could get rid of the ABS stuff on the driver side battery tray area..it takes up valuable space. Now they're both off and getting painted.

The color of the paint matches pretty well..I'm going to put a clearcoat on also so hopefully itll match up decently.

Perfect fit, didn't have to enlarge any of the mounting holes at all. I'd highly reccomend them.

FYI: Everybody says you will need an aftermarket intake with them because the inner fender is raised, but I was able to make the stock airbox fit. I'll get some underhood pics once they're done getting painted and back on.

Price is good when you consider they are full replacement tubes. Look at genright or PSC..they aren't full replacements and are about $100 less. Plus i can't weld.

I'm using the Duplicolor Color Match rattle cans in Flame Red. I get them at Autozone and Advance Auto but they only stock like 2 at each store. I went to about 7 stores and got 5, then just went to 1 Advance and got 4 there. It was like i hit the jackpot lol.
