There is a tool to help in the process. It bolts to the hub and is made by Eastwood. Some ppl complain about the paint cracking. With the quality and condition of your truck, if you are insistent on doing this- maybe get a professional quote & advice.

I believe most people also warm up the area to be rolled. If you go that route I would def go with the Eastwood tool. I know on the LS forums I use to frequent a guy would lend it out with a deposit plus shipping cost. Maybe someone here has access to one?

Was just wondering about this the other day. I didn't realize how thick the fender lip was. The more I look at it though, the more I believe I'm just going to go with smaller front tires instead of risking messing the paint up.

I use a hard rubber mallet to roll the fender lip. I've done it to five different trucks and not one of them paint has cracked. Even years later. You will need to remove the 5.5mm screw for the fender liner.

Rolled mine as well, back in '06 when I had a 4/6 and 22's hasn't cracked yet, not saying the rest of the truck doesn't look like piss tho.

Lino if you're looking for someone to roll the fenders if you decide to keep them, Joe Gambino can do it. He's in Toms River if you wanted to make the drive. Let me know, I can meet you over there.
