if i were you i would not run 35's on a locked d30 and 35. you will break... EVERYTHING. ha those axles are weakkkkk. if your on a low budget build the piss out of a hp 30 or waggy 44 for the front, and a 8.8 rear. or if you got some cash to ring out get some jk 44's those are some good axles.


just 35's, lockers, and a d35 is just not a good idea in general haha.

Yea you should drill the holes. Ive never seen these corner gaurds, but if their made of a decent gauge steel their going to be too heavy for that 3m tape. If their heavy, its worth mounting them with screws. If your going to upgrade later, then I would just deal with the dent until then.

After much research, I'm convinced that I want to cut my fender flares. Just 1.25". I'm sort of scared s**tless to do this, because if I mess it up I don't really have money to buy new flares.. I think the best ones cut that I saw were done with an exacto knife so I think I'll use that, plus I feel like I would have more control over the flare. and I plan on keeping the flare on the jeep while doing it. Wish me luck! Any tips would be great!

One suggestion is using tape as your marker for the line. Something else you can do once you have one line scored into the plastic is use a lighter to heat up the blade, then go back over it really slowly. The heat should make the blade a little easier to handle in the plastic.

Got the cutting done, took about an hour with measuring and cutting. I just used the exacto knife and a lighter to heat the blade with. Unfortunatly it started raining here so I can't sand and even it out or paint it. That's tomorrows plan! Heres the pics of just the cut flares. I see what people mean when they asked if the inside was cut in the back because you can see the inside of the flare in the back, but maybe it's not that noticable and just me..I REALLY have to paint my frame soon now.
