Not as old... 3.5 and 33's... With slightly trimmed fenders... Confused??:



Whats the width on the 33"s, and how much did you have to trim in the rear? Did you have extended bumpstops with this setup?

Doing 3.5 with 33x12.5 Thus night, charging batteries and buying blades and wheels for Friday fender cutting.

They where 33X12.5 and I trimmed the fender up to the lip the first time.. (Thats the edge of the flat part of the fender ... And I had to trim the front of the back fender almost flush with the door sil... You will see what I mean...

Yes I put 2" bumpstop extensions and It still rubbed in the front a little ..

A little massaging the inner fender with a hammer solved that... Mr. Green

Thanks for the info.

I have adjustable lowers and bumpstops. Also have a sawzall jigsaw and cutoff wheel, so I should be set. A BFH should clearance anything else.

With the lift and tires on I really get it.



Cutting that much on the front part of the rear fender, is that gonna have to be welded together? I can rivet it together until it can be welded if need be.
