Default Pulled/ Flared Front Fenders!

Ok guys, so I found only one person who has ever done this. They had a mild DD prerunner build over on Dezert Rangers and he did this, which I followed his directions to to some amount and here are the results. I took tons of pictures and will be making a how too soon. You get about 1.5" of flare. Just a litte tire clearence. Slightly more agressive look. This free and looks good and subtle. Helps ease your desire expensive, oversized fiberglass fenders that may be bigger than you need. .

These are before pictures on the passenger fender. Notice how the level is on the side wall of the tire and it doesnt touch the fender.

After pictures. Look at the level. The drivers side seems a little less flared, I tweaked it a bit after these pictures I still think it needs a little more to match.

Let me know what you think!

That turned out very well. Roughly how long did it take you to do that?

Here is the link I found it at, its not very detailed but it was enough to get the idea.
Ill will write up a good indepth how to with lots of pictures, warnings, etc. http://www.dezertrangers.com/vb/dr-rides/135204.htm

Depending on how fast you work, I could see it easily being done in an hour for both sides. I took quite a bit longer, but I was going slow and testing my options, trying things out. It really is quite simple though and can be done fast if you already know the direction I just spend alot of time tweaking them and also doing non related things lol.
