Well last trip I went on I was backing off the trailer and my tire just touched the fenders and they crushed. The original fenders were aluminum

and because of the aluminum being so flimsy I couldn't walk on them either so long story short they HAD to go. Well the plan is to make simple steel fenders that I can drive over if needed. This is the idea behind the finished product

Today I removed the aluminum fenders and after cleaning everything up I framed out the drivers side fender. No PIX yet, PIX to follow tomorrow when I finish them or at least finish framing them

OK havent updated in a while so here it is. One side is completely done minus skins. I drove the jeep up on it today and it didn't even budge. Hopefully I will finish the other side early next week.
