    Is anyone running the 3" bulge Fiberwerx bedsides and could share smoe pictures? TW searches for bedsides are a shitshow.

    I'm hoping I can get away with 3" over the 6" on my 35s with SUA.

    It feels like I'm pretty close with stock. Fuck it, maybe I'll do the front while I'm at it.:bananadead:

    Yes
    Are you running wheel spacers on the back ? you need to make sure that you are wide enough that your tires will tuck at bump or you will end up having to chop your glass

    Depending on offset you should be fine with 3”. With 37’s and -38’s plus 1.25 spacers my 37’s tuck into +6 with some trimming. But she’s one wide gal.

    Yeah, I’m running Method 703’s in 17x8.5 in 0 offset with 1.25 spacers in the rear. I think I’ll just sneak by with 3” and don’t want to go too wide.

    I’m just barely too fat at 30 PSI.

    Truthfully, I’d just trim what you have after seeing the pictures. Glass is cool and all if you can fit and finish. But if you can’t it’s not cheap. Then you can have the enjoyment of spider cracking etc.

    Yeah, I’m going to trim it and see where it gets me. My concern was I still have quite a bit of slack left in the limits on the opposite side in that shot so not sure I’ll have much left after the trim.

    I could have easily stuffed 37’s at this point with SUA.

    Same exact wheel and tire package as I have today. Just in “mid travel” form.

    You won’t regret keeping factory metal anywhere you can.

    Amateur hour. Make the whole tire stick out the bedsides.

    I'm surprised more folks don't do tube fenders. That's what I'm working on with mine. Built right into the back half and the engine cage/front bumper. With aluminum or carbon fiber filler panels (not sure which one yet), less than 100 lbs all in for the 4 fenders between tubing, panels, panel hardware, and paint.

    Most trucks out here want an oem look so you won’t see steel / aluminum boxes or bedsides. The overlanding world and the rock crawling world are form follows function, but it’s like icing on the cake when you can build a truck that even has a fully paneled trunk / back half and has oem style bedsides - kind of like how at some point I would see people running oem wheels on 80’s 90’s JDM cars. I see fabbed rear fenders on a lot of diy rigs on off road recovery videos from AZ and UT that are pretty cool and simple and well thought out - it seems to be a popular style out that way. TW LTBS is a small representative in the overall prerunner world where raptors and built prerunners definitely lead the trends and we kind of follow that for the majority of the time.

    For functionality even full tube backhalfs with aluminum paneling behind the glass will just make quick release bedsides for running paddles or shock tuning days where shocks get pulled and bypasses get tweaked after a couple runs. This is one way to do it:

    Did you buy this kit used? If so you should be replacing all the uniballs and bolts anyway, at least I would. And it's very obvious the p.o. didn't "prep" them which is why you're having the issues. I prep all my bolts and uniballs with a light coat of anti-sieze and I've never had an issue with them not coming apart when I ask them to.
