Question Fender Rolling

I found a few places that will roll my fender for me.


Only the driver one scrapes when I go up at an angle and am turning.

Just weird that one side does it and the other doesnt.


Btw, It doesnt change the way the fender looks does it? Like If I get one side done and not the other.


Thanks, think once I get this done and trim my bumpstops some more I should be good

Depends on how much they push those finders out. The best person to address those questions is the person who is going to do the work. If I were doing it I would be counting on doing both sides. Once you get more clearance you will find you will be traveling the suspension more. When that happens at some point you will find a new limit. Point is you will need the extra room on both sides.

You and the battery are on the drivers side...so think about it!

Depending on the experience level of the person doing the work will pretty much decide how well it will show at fender eye level. I like to roll the complete inner edge myself even though only a small part is needed for clearance. It is the symmetrical look I prefer by doing the whole inner edge.

If you are still trimming off the stock bump stop you should be really considering a polyurethane mount instead of the OEM soft rubber. If you do contact the trimmed stock bump stop it is unlike it will do much in the way cushioning the impact with its reduced size.

I recommend getting both sides done...never heard of anyone just getting one side done?

I would say post a picture(s) before and after contributing your experience for other members contemplating this body modification on their PT but......

You posted the link for the bump stops but I have no idea what size or dimension I need. Be a pal and check on that for me
