Default Will 4wd fenders be enough to fix this?

Hopefully the attached photos are good enough to get an answer. I wanted to drop down a bit more and as it sits already slams the fender on small bumps so was hoping I could get away with just ordering the 4wd fenders

My titans on 235/45/18 clear 4x4 fenders. Not sure of your offset, but I think at worst you'll have to roll the inner lip.

Dan,
The 4x4 fenders should help, but I do think you may have to stretch the fender a bit to get it to clear the poke you have going on there. IIRC the 4wd fenders add ~1.25" to the bulge area around the tire...... at worst it will be much closer than you have now.
Let us know how it goes.

Well it looks as though you are correct, damn close but still gonna need to pull them. Never done it before, shoulda left one of the 2wd fenders mounted to practice on. So quick question I know rolling will bend the inner edge inward eliminating sharp edges but what about pulling the fender outward to clear the tire more I dont want it to look like some people's trucks where the front and rear look all lumpy as if they took a mallet to beat it out.

You could try the bat rolling method. In the back you’ll have to cut the reinforcement between the outer bed skin and the inner structure. This will allow you to flare it out some. Frankly, the best solution is to find wheels that have more positive offset. I feel your pain. Wheels that don’t fit right have been a pain in my neck for years.

I would suggest trying to find or rent a fender roller. It is hard to roll the lips without getting a ripple or two. Just my suggestion as someone who did it without one.

I am asking around I have a few friends who may have a roller. As far as the rear if you are referring to the reinforcement to the bed that I think you are (the small metal brace with the 10mm) that has already rusted off. In the meantime I will clear my brain on this small pickle and work on a few other things, u-joints, raise and replace carrier bearing, replace leaking output seal if I can find the correct one and also the leaking inner shift boot. I will update on this when i come back to it. Thanks for the help gentlemen!
