The welded on hanger in that last pipe section dictates the distance from the panel. I ran with the Assault fender for a long time other than the brace breaking after repairing bracket 3 times I have not got around to building the new bracket. We already have one installed. So the fender is just laying in the play room
Hence the DIY fix. Cut off that welded on hanger, trim the third pipe section and install new clamp on hanger.
