Kinda depends on who is doing what and with what tools. If they have a real fender roller it would prob be more... but it would be done right. I could not see it costing more than $75-$100

And thanks to everyone for posting. Makes it easier for me and maybe others to have something for reffrence

Yeah you can do that. All you do is find a bat and wedge it in there on either side that fits best. The idea here is to take your time and not try and get it all in one shot. You also wanna do it on a kinda wamr day so the paint is warm.

The bat will be between in the fender well and tire. The end sticking out from the fender points down to the ground. Firmly grab the bat with two hands and roll it along the tire and working it into the inner fender back and forth real slow. Turn the bat and roll it back and forth to work that iner lip.

If you try to go too crazy you can make ripples or waves in the fender lip... so take your time

Andy FYI all. I got my stuff on... and my 45 offset works great with the JICs

Cause that is the ultra pimp JIC setup. All aftermarket. The springs and adjustable shock body are a matched set

Forum members, I tested my Koni/Eibach setup with my 18x7.5 rims with a 38mm offset and it looks GREAT! No need to roll the fenders AT ALL (Front or rear). I am wondering if it makes a difference that I have a GS. I almost want to get rid of my GS rims or trade them for some TL's since I now think the 65mm offset sets them in too far.

Hmm shoud nt make a difference at all. I think what everyone was laening twards was the more aggresive the drop.. the more wheels clearance you need. You should throw some pcs up of your setup

if you guys are afraid of rubbing go with lower profile tires like 30's, and try going with a milder stretch.
