lets see your highline body kits

anybody have this done? found a link to diy this mod. kind of wandering what it would do for my 2"bb? don't laugh, it seems like a smart idea. you'll keep your center of gravity low and get taller tires.

It not only raises the wheel arch openings but makes them a LOT longer, allowing the bigger tires to really tuck up inside the arches. To give you an idea, I measured up the AEV / ARB rocker panels and they are about 14 cm too long for my rocker panels now


Anyway some pictures:

hey 1cleantj that DIY job looks pretty good except your hood doesn't latch well, im sure you already know but i was wondering if it was the way you cut the hood or that you dont have proper latches? because im interested in doing this and everything looks good on yours but the hood.

i cut more then most would so the stock latch assembly wouldnt put enough pressure on it, I planned on going with a hoodpin setup but 20 cents worth of bolts worked just as well, and its been a year now and hood hasnt come flying up yet
