You did a good job on the fenders, but like everyone is saying you need to lift it. Does not matter how, as long as you don't use hockey pucks.

well, this is interesting. ever hear the saying, just becuase you can, doesnt mean you should? that applies here.

it looks kinda cool, but seems pointless to me. i had 33's on my ranger before i lifted it, and even the slightest flexing in the rear had me rubbing like crazy. they still rub in the rear when fully flexed. i wouldnt even wanna try 35s
but hey, you like it, so thats what matters. good luck

I'll admit it looks better than I thought and the fact it's already rusted makes me feel a little better about chopping it... our point is really the fact you're going to need SOME sort of lift to utilize even daily driving with that tire size and when you start lifting your cut job is gonna look silly...

If so, maybe he was just driving in Utah. Can certainly go for 5 mins without rubbing there

Hell ya dude. Glad you like it. It doesn't look that bad. I would not do it to a newer truck though. Have you taken it really off road yet to see how it handles?
