Title: Large tires without lifting.
Post by: perrib on February 04, 2011, 08:41:11 PM
Joe came over the house last year with a 1 ton stake body 4x4 Chevy to install winches and he cut the fender bott0ms for larger tires.  Cut bottoms of fenders really BUGs me so that would not do. In pictures what happened over the next few weeks.

Welding the inner fender back in for support. Without it the fender is weak.

I kept the inner fenders and there were a couple of problem you may or may not find. I did find out the opening is only good for 33s without a lift, With a set of 3"lift springs 35s and 37s rub a bit in a couple of places and the next time I know where to modify the fenders. Anything larger and the inner fenders, body and core support will need  relocation/ trimming some of it major.

Those fenders look awsome. I seen the truck at the MnG at Kkat's house last year at it took me awhile to figure out why it looked different.

NICE work man besides buying fiberglass fenders thats the best way to fit some big meats! and it keeps the mud downunder the truck instead of on your windshield
