Sorry for so many questions, but where did you get your tubing and what kind of bender did you use?

I'd go look myself to see, but my jeep is torn apart in a garage up north. ugh

I will post pics of mine later. I kept the inner fenders. It made it alot easier to keep all the stuff that is bolted on the fenders. I have 2.5 springs, 1 inch body, and 40" tires.

Good job on yours guys. They look great.

Nothing yet, but we are using AEV's suggested diagram for cutting. Pretty much cut all you can at the front, and about 2" at the back. I don't have a link, but the info we're going by is on AEV's site.

Default Updates Second Jeep Done

Here it is. Hood chopped fenders done. I might trim more from the rears (second pic is at full, on the bump stop stuff) but will see how it works on a trail/dunes first.

Looks good. I think the rear will rub in a flexed position.

The second pic is on the bump stops no rub (3" of bump stop ) but ya I'm gonna trim some more and lose some stop when I have time. And don't fret I'll be ready to go.
