It's possible but as you have to use a drill to drill into the fender liners, the tires will be in the way. You can turn them to lock to gain room for whatever hole you're working on but that's why the instructions state to remove them. And if you attempt with the wheels on, your drill needs to be pretty compact as there still is not much room.
Couldn't I just simply mark the L brackets and remove them then drill?

You could, but you still need to put holes in the fender liner. Removing to drill introduces the possibility of inaccurately drilled holes that may not line up.

Since you understand the end result, how you get there doesn't really matter. Do whatever is easiest for you in your environment. Our instructions were written considering both ease and accuracy. But, as they say- there's more than one way to skin a cat.

I have had mine on since summer 2017 and it's still completely flawless! It's really a relief having what now feels like a permanent structural part of the underbody instead of a constant $350+ liability waiting to shred itself to bits at a moment's notice. Buy with confidence

Finally decider to pull the trigger and bought the underbelly shield super glad i did. Fitment was absolutely perfect. I love the way it was designed to drill openings for the screws to get it aligned to the millimeter.

Here are some before and after pics.

To all: The powder coater took longer than promised. We had some 40 backorders to fill. Orders have been going out in order of receipt. Tracking is uploaded to Paypal and buyers will receive an automated email from Paypal with order updates as they occur. The rest of the orders will be going out today and tomorrow.

If anyone has any further questions about their order please message me directly so I can better correlate screen name & message history to each order.

We've already sent our next batch to CNC. This time we are making twice as many trays as our previous lot which should help reduce supply issues.

Are all of the current pieces spoken for, or do you have any in the current batch that are ready to sell/go out? Thank you!

I have two more from this batch. Then it will likely be a few weeks until the next batch is back from coating.
