  • Fender Chop

    Has anyone done the stock fender chop? Pictures? Would anyone be willing to help the process so I don't mess it up haha. Chopping fenders to extend them and do other stuff before buying good tube fenders. Thanks in advance

      I've done it. It's not hard, just take your time. We spent more time getting the right line that I wanted than we did actually cutting. Used a jig saw and took the front fenders off to cut them but left the rears on. Honestly, the sanding, preping, and paint work, to paint all of the newly exposed tub, took WAY more time than actually cutting the fenders. Just spend a lot of time looking at different chops on the 'net to figure out how much you want to get rid of -- you can always trim more off if you didn't take enough off the first time.

      I lined the rear of the front fenders and the front of the rears up with my rock rails and kept the factory taper so they're not as narrow as some.

        I don't understand how cutting the fenders will extend them.

          I think he means extend in the sense of making them last longer. Either cutting for more room for tires and/or cutting off the scratched parts on the stock ones.

              Yes, extend them longer. I have thing I want to do before buying flat fenders so this will give me extra space until I get around to buying good ones

                  Just did mine this weekend and left the radius for stiffness. Still need to add the edging.

                    That looks good

                        I'd mount up a 3/4" LED.

                          The light is not required but if you want one get the 3/4" led.

                            How much would that run?

                              Cost for the LEDs? Less than $20. Most auto parts stores sell em.
