Anyone ever pull off the factory chrome, tuck in the metal lip underneath, and roll the fenders? If not can someone do a quick photoshop job of it? I have no idea if it would look good or not...

I've thought about but it would take some kind of hammer and dolly work.If you tuck the lip you're tire gap will also increase,as it is it's pretty sizable. A good metal fab shop could put your fenders through an English wheel but that might cost alot.If you have a hammer and dolly set you might pick up a junked fender and see how it turns out/Finish it off with some bondo and it might look alright.

I'm not too worried about the tire gap since the front is lowered. Planning on getting some spacers soon so I might need to do it so they don't slice up my tires when I go over bumps.

yeah, stance the boat! All functionality aside, the riv would look sweet with a wide rear stance.

I'm not stancing it to the degree where it's unusable. Already rocking about 2* of camber all around, just need to bring the wheels out so they fit a little more flush and so that bigger brakes become an option surprised

Well Matt,

Why don't you do it and show us how it looks.??

Maybe some of the rest of us will pick up on it and do the same.

Please be sure to document the fender rolling procedure, that would be very interesting.

The wheel gaps on the Riv are pretty big already. Rolling would be needed for 20" wheels or bigger, but I'm just not a fan of big gaps around stock diameter tires.
