Agreed, to a point. Depends on the trails. If you're rock crawling or whatever (which is presumably what most people would use a "trail rig" for), yeah, having the tires protrude can be a bonus. In that case, flareless with wide wheels/tires can work great. But if you're just doing mild to middling dirt roads or trails to get to that great campsite or view, there's little to be gained from it.In a trail Rig you want the tires to stick out way past the body.
Fair enough, but to me that's more the overland crew.But if you're just doing mild to middling dirt roads or trails to get to that great campsite or view, there's little to be gained from it.
Post pics especially the undercarriage. You got me excitedI ended up buying it! 95, triple locked, no roof rack/wing (which I like), 296k, and a poorly done but 2 y/o paint job. The fender could be added back later, but I like it both ways. All for under $10k in Southern California, which means 100% rust free, like truly rust free. Underside looks brand new. Interior well work though and it has a few quick haha.
Would I remove the fender for my intended use? No, but it also isn’t gonna stop me from getting on haha, especially where if I was as picky as I *want* to be it would double the cost and out of my budget.
She’s far from perfect but all things considered in good shape it had a front end collision at some point so the hood doesn’t sit quite right and a small little bit of non straight-ness on the PS fender but not really too noticeable. But for $9.5k, 3x locked, 95 in SoCal I think I did pretty good!Post pics especially the undercarriage. You got me excited
