Update 9/24/16

Well just got back from Elk hunting in Arizona and checked up on the Canyon at the body shop. I had them clear the 37" Nitto's I picked up. They clear but not enough to run without turning the coilovers all the way up. If it were to so much as run a curb on 37"s they would still contact the kick panel. But it will easily clear 35"s. I'll have better pictures but here is how extensively they had to clear the kick panel.





All patched up!

Wow. Real clever way of widening the fender opening, and preserving the stock lines.

Making them the size that GM should have from the factory, while retaining the OE Body lines.

Really tough with the way GM runs their body lines and wheel wells. I hate all the extra work I have to go through, but I'll only do it the right way to look OE when it's done.

Update 10/19/16

Well that wasn't cheap, but it got done exactly how I wanted. I had him move the rears back 1.5" as well to keep any droop from ever slamming the tires into the rear fenders. Next will be building a winch bumper. Pretty sure I'm going to take the cheap route and just go with a Smittybuilt instead of a Warn. Just can't beat the price and it's not like she is going to be running the Rubicon with it. Those bumper angles are going to be a pain to work with on making it look right, but I'm sure I'll come up with something.

If you don't mind, I'm trying to do a mini version of yours and fit 20x10 -25 @ 285/55r20 KO2s, how much did this run you? I'm being quoted $400~$1000.

I can't see anyone getting all this done for that. I have a couple chop shops that can roll Ford Superduty fenders 12"s up for that, but not cutting, sliding, and filling the fenders like this. I could see a chop shop doing it proper for $2000-$2500.

Body shop is saying $400 for cutting and grinding and no more than $1000 for welding, molding abs, and finishing everything nice and tidy. They do these a lot for the dealerships.

Looks awesome, it's really how it should have come from the factory. I wish they would have done that on the ZR2 at least, but no luck there. Guess I'm going to have to make some friends in the bodywork world...

****! I hate Cali! lol I know more than half of it is them chasing covering their overhead, but it still hurts pissing that much money away. This is exactly why I've already started building my retirement in Texas.

I'm in South Florida, which you would think would be pretty expensive. Sent my body shop the shots of your truck build and see how much they'll charge for the exact same thing. Will let you know how much it is, it could be more if they do the work exactly like yours. I didn't think of chopping 2 inches in the center and moving the whole rear fender towards the door line more. That's really innovative in keeping the OEM body lines and look, which I love and is still sheet metal. Yours came out awesome!

Thanks man and please don't let me know how cheap it is for you. lol My buddies have MLA Customs out of Naples. That is where my SuperCrawler truck is. I've been down there a couple times for Cowboys and TGW. I love Florida, it's beautiful and the people are great, outside of the city. lol

Update 10/30/16

So I needed 2 winches and went with Smittybilt. Couldn't pass up the price for a 12k Lb for the Canyon and a 17k Lb for my hot shot trailer. The 12k comes loaded with rope and a wireless remote. It took 10 bends to match the flow of the valance. I'm going to have to get another valance, since the body shop trimmed it and the corners were cut too high. The verticals are going to be 2x4. Love how much room I have to tuck it back inside. The approach angle is going to be way better than stock.

Update 11/1/16

Tubular winch bumper is coming together nicely. Was able to run the vertical 2x4's and catch both the front main bar and a back 1.5" horizontal support. The rest should come together pretty fast now.

Template for the 2x4's

My pleasure. I like to push the envelope and hopefully push and inspire others to do the same.

What are you doing with the gearing running the 35s? 4:10s maybe? Leave it stock?
