I have a 1979 cj7 304 california model. I just got done painting my vehicle and spraying the wheel well of the fenders. Everything was in pieces. The fenders are replacement fenders that I bought from morris 4x4. They are steel. My problem is I tried to attach the driver side to the tub and grill today and the inner well hits the smog pump. Has anyone ran into this situation? What did you do to rectify the situation? Also the notch that was made for the shock bracket is in the wrong spot. I really screwed up by not checking this stuff before final paint.
Yeah I dont think I am gonna have a problem with the cut-outs any longer. I just need to find a solution to the smog pump. I cant cut that portion of the fender out. That would expose the smog pump and belts to inside the wheel well.
Sorry, couldn't resist that one... we go through fenders like boots out here. So, I am not all that familiar with the smog pump issue, but is it rubbing, or is it one of those things that you can take the pump off, put the fender on and then put the pump back on and you would be OK?
I am at work and can't see any pictures right now, so I am not sure if you posted any, but from the description, it is hard to tell exactly what the issue is.
No the smog pump is definitely in the way. I am have thrown away the old fenders months ago. They were that bad. I am assuming the combo of the smog pump as well as the 304 is the issue. I am also assuming that they had to make a different fender for this california jeep. I wish that I had some pictures of the old fender inside.
