true but it all depends on where u go wheeling
also cause wher we go axle clearance is the biggest thing that will stop u
unless u run at least 35s ur gonna be hung up on almost everything

but back to the previous statments about a bl how is that gonna fix anything
his suspension still isnt gonna work and he will still definatly rub frame for sure

most people are telling him to get a BL which will do absolutely nothing for break over clearance.

Agreed, only thing a BL will do in this case is let him flex it a little bit more.

I run 35's with no rubbage. Fenders help a lot and all I run is a spindle... for now.

I even uncranked my torsions bars cus I got tired of going through ball joints and tires and still no rubbage.

There's a difference between being brutal and truthful.

This site has more truth than brute.

I like the look man, but please, save yourself the time down the road in repairs and put a BL on it.
BL's are not always the answer. Sure, they will get you that clearance for the tires, but what else do they do?

I talked to another member about this thread today. We were talking about how you guys all hate on this guy who cut his fenders, saying it looks like crap, but where are the haters on Zabeard's cut fenders, or Matt's? Hmmmm?

At least somebody is doing stuff to their truck, unlike a lot of you members giving him flack.

May not have been the best idea, but at least it is one. Instead of calling your spare tire a MOD!

There are a couple people that didnt like what zabeard did to his fenders. There not bad but I would not have done that. Matts is dove tailed so you have to love it.

I do give him props for what he has done I just dont get the point.

In Beard's defense, his truck has so much flex (and flex to spare) that he actually needed to do it in order for the tires to clear.

it is about function. I haven't hated on the guy really but this is what I have to say.

I don't care if a guy cuts his fenders to fit bigger tires or to stop rubbing when flexed out but the reason it is done, it so tires don't get cut your so you can fit that one extra sized tire once you have a rig for it.

In this case there still is no function to the thing. Yeah he got 35's in there, what is the point if you can't drive it where you want without it rubbing places and scaring up his tires. If I was him I would either get a suspension lift, then put the 35's in there or just go to 33's since he has to buy tires still.

but it is not mine or anyone elses rig except his. So he can technically do what he wants, hell just keep cutting and get 37's in there.

???

I mean he obviously needs some lift with those tires. So why not do something cheap so he can atleast drive it? Might as well take the fenders off instead of hacking them up like that.
