it came out ok, but it could be better......it fixed the problem I was going to have with the tire tucking into the rear anyway.

When I cut mine, I used masking tape to show what it would look like before I did any cutting. I then folded the cut edge over to make it look clean.

well, I had planned on just painting the truck flat black so the fact that I wrinkled it isn't that big a deal. but I did do something similar......I basicly drew out where I wanted to cut the fender then offset an inch lower. then I cut where I offset and then folded the lip up link what phillippi is talking about. I just had a situation that the metal was in a bind so when I went to beat the lip over with my body hammer the fender twisted in the seam where the flare is. it looks fubar but it will work and I think if I put one of those rubber flars over it it will look ok......but like FSB said its going to get smashed any way........ :redneck:

I compaired them to the stock one's and there is a big difference.

stock = 17 uncompressed
superflex = 24" uncompressed

monday is when I am going to get them in, if I have enough time I am going to start on the steering also.
