I'll take some pics of my since my car is on jack stands. But yes you will need to do it if you don't wanna rub and all you need is a dremel tool and you can do it yourself (I did)

When your at SRD have wade pull the tabs off the front fender lining and tuck it into the fender and have a slit cut where he stops the rolling on the front fenders.

Try to pay extra (or you can do it yourself) relocate rear bumper tab screw I would say 3-4 inches back from its previous spot. And the excess metal trim it off. Also trim off some of the fender from the bumper.

After all that you shouldn't rub at all.

My fronts still do a bit though I am slammed but its because the tires are hitting the inside top part of the lining/fender.

Kids have it so easy. When I was a kid, I walked to school, uphill, in 120 degree heat, 5 miles, both ways, just to learn about a planet named Pluto.

So Wade, you can roll the front fenders without ****ing them up?

Pix of the rear tab reloc would be nice.

I just went and too some pics and I'll post em up soon. Basically, I moved mine back about 3 fingers on both sides. Looking at it now, I can move it back further, but I don't see a point since they didn't rub before. I might just do it if I don't get my tires on tomorrow.

Yours has the tabs trimmed down. and yes, I can roll almost perfectly flat on itself without damaging. Your risk does go up if the fender has been painted, as the paint gets alot thinker and is more likely to crack. also make sure there is no previous damage to the fenders, or it will not roll very well. The rear tab relocation is if you are going for a SUPER low stance like simmy's.

btw, it would appear the ap1s have a smaller area there for a tab relocation and another metal tab that comes out farther... i will have to see an ap2 again to confirm.
