      Yes I have. I don't know how good of a job I did though. I quickly lost interest when I did it. I meant to redo it when I had everything apart but I forgot.

      He likes to eat sweet potatoes. I personally think they are nasty.

      Honestly though 6 flags safari VIP tour is one of the coolest things I've ever done.

      Take off your front wheels and look up. Theres a strip of metal that hangs down. You use a hammer or malt to bend it up. Kinda like rolling your fenders, but you don't have to worry about being gentle.

      If you don't flatten them they can hold you up.

      Close to it. It's literally right above your tire. Cant miss it. Air all the way up and you can probably feel/see it. I'm about to go run out and get an alignment. If I can get a pic with my phone Ill post it.

      No fender liners. They were chewed up to hell a long time ago.

      semi related question

      do you have any issues hitting your inner fender ant? i know even at 23.5ish a spot on my inner fender was polished out due to rubbing. i think it had something do with my semi stock tire size though.

      I do have some rub marks, but I think it was from when I ran my winter wheels at 23".
