Default Large Fender Mod

Getting ready to do the LFM this afternoon, I read the write up, seems straight forward, but I was curious on opinions whether heating any of the metal before bending would be worthwhile?

Ive never had to heat the metal. Make sure you paint the bare metal you cut to prolong the life of it.

Not sure if GMC flares are different structurally, but there wasn't much of bottom lip to fold up.. it does look like someone was in there before me though..

It always sounds worse than it is. Did one side in a couple hours now I can do a whole truck in about a hour. Amazing how much room it opens up!

ive done this mod to a 2016 and my current 2017, pretty much the same, except the older trucks are a little easier to manipulate IMO..makes a difference thats for sure.

Yeah I am hoping the new wheels/tires will follow the curve and not get hung up on the very outside... I'm only going to a 285 55r20

I'm a smidge lower than stock, 20x10 -19 for the wheels. The LMM wheel wells are very unforgiving
