      I have a friend that just got some for his Jeep so i thought i'd give it a shot up front on mine. I knew i would have room in the back. So i put them on there and backed it out of the shop and took it over to the dirt pile and did some flexing and it didn't rub a bit! It rubbed ever so slightly while turning to the right and i would definalty have to trim some of the lower fenders and plastic, but i could live with that! I was really really suprised. They rub more on his Jeep with a 4" lift. Now if i can talk the little lady into letting me get some 33's!!

      Happy trails!!

      I'm going to try to get 32's to fit tomorrow. i'll let you guys know how much trimming there is to do if i get them. My dad's knows the head mechanic so he said he'll get some in and we'll put them on and if they work i'll roll out on 32's if not i'll put 31's on but the only way 32's are not going on is if i have to trim more than 2 inches off the plastic.

      Edit: getting 32 BFG M/T

      Well, when I test fit some 33x12.50s and flexed it out I barely rubbed. I then get the new ones (different brand and of course new) and they rubbed like crazy. Oh well, the front fiber fenders look good :)

      33x10.50 is a lot easier to fit than 33x12.50.

      The 33's were BFG KOs. 10.50's are the size of 33's i want. I don't know whey but i think they look better. It doesn't look good about me getting some, the little lady doesn't like the idea!

      I saw the picture of your fenders Alec, how do you like them? How much do a set of those cost?

      Happy trails!!

      Mine were $300 shipped. Installation was free, and painting will probably be $150-200.

      It isn't done yet, but should be by the end of next week. I am still waiting to get the light bar and front skid plate back, then I'll have to install the PIAAs I have waiting on my garage floor and I'll be picking up my Can-Back next week. Then on Friday, we leave for the Mojave Road. So I should get some good action photos of it on the trail.

      Here is one from yesterday.

      Wow, that's great Bob. You've really got a pretty truck. I love the way it looks. How well do they fit on 15x7's. For some reason i thought they wouldn't fit on that size, you proved me wrong!

      Happy trails!!
