In my head it makes more sense to modify these since they are there. Drilling another set of holes will piss me off. If I do just end up ordering new corners I'll hang onto these for my son's future build. We'll see when the metal starts getting cut.

Here are two different CAD drawings from Moabfab

The one on top is 5.5" stretch with the one on the bottom being 6"
The green and red lines are where the bend is.

With a side note the wheelwell has been made for 38's since I plan on 37's in time.

Around 7-7.5" if I had to guess. Before the new axles I stretched 5" and pushed it back 2-3" more from there.

You move your fuel bezel to where your license plate is just like how it is for the yj stock position

That leaves you just enough time to prep "Nate" style for the paint .

Fresh wall


Tomorrow I'm going to do the outside siding with the new window.
