    what have you guys done to fit them? just cut the old guard right off? also how did u seal them on the inside so water doesnt just go into your boot?

    Chop it off.



    Weld it on.



    When you chop it off you have to weld the inner and outer guard together.

    I take no credit for mine though, as i didnt do it.

    Make sure you got the wheels to fill em tho, welding the whole guard on will be about a 40mm increase over stock!

    Mine were trimmed back so they werent quite as wide, a 8 -22 sat just poking the lip out the guard.

    That will sit the same as an 8 -4

    I seriously suggest just getting some 8 inch wheels so that the tyre stretch makes the wheel fit your stock guards, as an 8 -4 will clear stock guards with a 185/60 and a roll and pull

    Unless they are completely rusted out and need replacing then go nuts.
