I was leaving Friday for a weekend trail ride, so I had to finish these asap. I used some poster board to make some templates



I then traced the templates onto some sheet metal and cut them out with the plasma. Due to my time constraint I ended up quickly tacking the sheet metal to the tubes and loaded up the jeep and hit the trail.
My plan is to cut them off when I return and spend some more time getting the metal to fit better and cleaning up everything and painting them.



I installed these to be able to run 35's without adding to my lift (4 inch) they worked out great! they never hit the tires..

Looks real good...I'm looking forward to seeing the finished/painted product. The only thing I can see is that now your bumper looks long! You should chop the ends off your smittybilt and grind em down. Make it look like a Poison spyder brawler bumper!

Does anyone know if a snorkel can still be used with a fender like this?

Just wasnt sure if there was enough room in that area behind the tire, maybe the tubing would be in the way. I'm not real sure where a snorkel exits the body, I want to do a similar fender job but I need a snorkel.

Finally found some time this week to work on my fenders. I ended up cutting off all the sheet metal that I quickly tacked in place. I had to make some new cuts but had everything fitting quite nice. I welded the panels back in place. (Sorry I didn't take pics of that) I also created a new corner section, I may be able to mount some parking lights to it in the future.
For a smoother look, I applied fiberglass (gorilla hair) body filler to the edges. I sanded it smooth and sprayed some primer on them. Here is what I have so far...
(I unbolted the front of the fenders for painting)
