I could easily hit anywhere from 16-19 when I was on 33s. Add a few heavy steel pieces and a bigger tire and I am constantly hitting 14 now:(

Getting back to my fender research, this is where Metalcloak, MCE and AEV each move the fender line. I also marked where the factory scoop is on the outer lip of the fender. Notice the chipped paint. This is where the PO bent the fenders from 32" tires on stock suspension.

I am surprised to see that MCE brings the line back further than MC. The means that MCE with the back wall of the wheel opening pushed back may actually make more room than Metalcloak does.

Where did you get the metalcloak numbers from?
Pictures. I laid a straight edge down connecting the hood latch to the back of the hood. You'll see it all on Saturday. I'm hoping to have time to cycle the suspension and add more meaning to these lines.

Greg might have some pics when he did his MCE's, or when Hendrix re-worked them.

I liked the way Hendrix re-worked them so they fit better. Just not a fan of how they hack them on the stock fender portion.

Thanks! My guess was pretty good. If anything I need to move my line a little further out from the hood.
