I have thought about it. How do you plan to do it?

Done it. Love it. Pushed my fenders out by about 1/2" in the front and 3/4" in the rear. I had this for when I was on H&R coilovers. I used an Eastwood Fender roller, and also Own one now. Works amazing. Take your time and heat the paint (if you don't want to crack it). You will still crack the paint, just not as much and it will only be on the lip.

^^ Take your time, do it slowly, when I was finished ( done it on a few cars) I went back and filled in the paint cracks with touch-up paint real heavy. The Fofo has thin sheet metal so go slow.

To minimize paint cracking to the degree possible, gently heat with a heat gun as this will soften the paint...just be careful and don't over do it. This may be one of those jobs best left to a competent body shop.

Where can a fender roller be had? This may be necessary for me when I redo my suspension too.
