    Around the holidays, the vehicle mod budget pretty much goes away. I have the tray and second battery. Just saving up for the rest.

    Still love this build!

    Did you start your build ideas based off of Freeze aka Nathan?

    How are your fenders holding up now? What are they attached with? If you have seen Spoonman also cut his 3" around he has his holding on with WHT tie wraps for extra grab. I am looking to avoid tie wraps myself. How did you finish the trimmed edge of the metal body panels? MOAR pictures of the fenders and moar write up on it please!

    Fenders are holding up very well. They are attached by the stock plastic clips. They are a little flimsy but I went ahead and replaced every single clip so they hold on tight. I don't have any zip tires holding on the flares at all. The rear fender has a metal bar for reinforcement but that is the only extra reinforcement I added.

    I used some black edge trim to finish the edges.

    I still need to cut the front bumper because my tires are rubbing the inside at full compression/lock.

    Picture of the measuring prior to cutting.

    Looks good, I want to do this when I get 35's and like Jamie (Bugslee) said, take 3" in the front and 2" in the back, seems to be the magic number....I can always cut more off.

    3" would be a good to trim off the fenders. I still have 1" of the bottom of the fenders left over and may epoxy them together one of these days.

    What did you cut the metal with? And the plastic? I am pretty handy with tools but just a little girl when it comes to cutting body panels.
