I have been thinking about this for prob 2 months now, but kinda set it aside and havent given it too much thought. Well after reading willys post in his thread it popped back in my head. I really like the look of no front fenders. So my idea is to instead of waste money on cut outs, just remove them and run pipe up the door line to the hood then along the hood line and either tie in with the bumper or go across and connect to the other side. I realize alot of ppl will think it is going to look stupid or whatever, but i want to do this. I do have some concerns though. I plan on putting black diamond plate on the inside of the fender so that i do still have inner fenders, will this cause over heating probs? Anything i should worry about? Thickness of diamond plate? Affect of the heat on it? Also I doubt it would but, is it possible it would have any effect on the legality of the truck? I read the vehicle laws a while back and i should prob read them again. Any ideas/suggestions? I might just end up selling the body lift i have if i do this and running 37s/38s.
