Look at the pics in those threads at the rear of the Jeep. Just judge it by the license plate offset. That is what I did.

If you look at the fender flares behind the tire, I started right below the bottom rivit, and then went from there. I also moved my license plate up about an inch, cutting the top off some and drilling new holes in the plate. You can see in some of my pic's I think. If you need more pics I can take some more to help you do a Mudd's Bumper :wink:

I started just below those Fender rivets too. Then on the rear, I cut it about 1/2" below the spare tire cutout. Use masking tape first to lay it all out to see what trim line you want. Easier to remove tape than to remove an accidental cut. :SOMBRERO:
