I see that you ousted the rear fender cladding on the drivers side but not on the passenger side?
Was this 4x4 battle wounds or a clearance issue on one side?
Bye the way, what size wheels are you running under your Sporty, Brand, diameter, width, Backspace? This is always one of my favorite questions.
