      looks good! i wonder if I could use the older trim instead of the huge 2" grey flares that are on my 2000 model.... because i know the newer rear flares would look funny with perrys glass fenders

      Ummm... Who's that dorky looking guy in the first after picture? :rolleyes: :D JK!

      I think you should paint the fenders, then they'll be sweet!

      alec,

      that looks awesome!

      i noticed a lot of people suggested that he paint those fenders, but i think its a safe assumption to make that hes not going to leave them like that, heh.

      we all know hes going to paint them because of his old post about painting them, but more than half of the time people dont paint their fiberglass fenders for awhile if at all.

      cant wait to see it all black!

      My vote is to paint them (even though it's not my truck). My neighbor down the street has had the white front fenders on his Maroon Ranger for the three years he has lived here.

      they're for sure going to get painted, it's just a matter of when.

      thanks to all for the kind words!

      Took about 5.5 hours, some Jack-in-the-Box, and some mosquito bites. It was time consuming, but overall very easy. They didn't fit perfectly; had to be trimmed in some places and leave gaps in others, but overall very easy. All hardware that was used was stock reused hardware; the new fenders each have 2 less mounting points than the old but are still on there very well.

      Rubbing was reduced 80%, and will be totally gone after I trim the remaining stock panels there to match the new fenders.

      We took the old fenders off, attached the new ones via holes drilled in the front by the headlights, then did all the holes from the front back, ending up by the side skirts.

      What about your inner wheel liners? did you ditch them, keep them, cut them, what?

      Reason I ask is most people get the big ol 6" fenders and remove their plastic fender skirts, I plan to keep mine since I like to keep the dirt and mud under control and my AutoFAB's are only a 3" bulge so I bet they can be retained fairly easily.............looks good!!!

      The inner wheel liners where cut about 50%. Kept the inner 50%, removed the outer half. They have molded contours in them for strength, and I tried to cut at those so their edges remain rigid. I had to improvise a few new mounting points with plastic rivets to keep them still.

      Aldive, I probably wouldn't have posted installation info if I didn't do it myself; do you always know what your mechanic has for lunch? :rolleyes:

      ok it looks like they welded a few long metal pieces to the body that stick out and then bolt on to the fender to reinforce/mount the fender. the metal pieces are just long metal strips around 3-4'' long and are (pretty messily) welded to the body. at the end of the metal there is a hole that a bolt goes through connecting it to the fiberglass. does this make sence?

      Yes, it does make sense. Extra support is always good, unless you're building crumple zones ;) Mine are on there fine though, using the stock mounting points minus the one in the top of the door channel.

      One thing I was wondering today: what do all my mods do to accident survivability? Probably not good things, as that 33" tire would probably break my legs :(
