Hammer, this is what I want to see; I want to see the fender openings cut so far up for clearing suspension articulation of the 53" tires, that you actually have the fenders opened into the hood area!

I can see it now!

Actually, I think they will be JUST under the hood line. And JUST under the bed rail.

Those are grande tires!! Cool.. A guy at work has an early unimog with those on it. He stuck a pop top camper on the bed. I'm not real sure how he gets into the cab or the camper cause they are way up there! You can see his rig anywhere in the parking lot. Anyway, nice tires!

Hey fellers.. I was out in the garage looking at the Cherokee, dreaming.. and thinking of tires.. I want 42's w/no rub, and I was thinking of just hogging them out right to the hood... then I get on here and look: great minds think alike!

it's either going to be a tubed "fender", like on little jeeps, or Tom's excellent flare idea.

I need to update that picture. I based that idea on a cherokee/wagoneer frame. And it was designed with coils in mind rather then leafs.
So raise the height of the fender lip to the hood and bed rail, and you have my first attempt for clearance.
