All that setup requires is a minor roll in back with no paint needed.

It's not that hard with the baseball bat method. As long as you're just rolling the fenders, there's not much chance of messing up the fender. Do your research and take your time, use plenty of heat and it should be just fine

I did roll them flat, there is more than enough room now. I used a fender roller, which I do rent out

Personally I think the lighting is better than stock plus I threw a set of 55w hids in and I've no complaints with them. Also I love that they are glass lights and not plastic.

I have no idea if they are or not. I'm just skeptical because they are eBay and the glass might be thinner than say, your average sealed beam (which I've encountered plenty with rock holes, btw). I'm not sure if the DOT really has a regulation on the thickness of the glass or not

Anyways,

Good point lol. I thought you were talking about the wheels there for a second lmao

Also, I might have to pick some of that up for when we get this on the road again....just to be safe. (notice how I'm bending the rules to keep things on topic )
