    There are 100s of how to video on cutting fenders. I see more people with cut fenders than aftermarket fenders.

    Yea you know I cut mine while I saved for aftermarket ones after upgrading to 35s because I wanted to wheel right away after installing the tires. Haven't had any complains about the cut fenders so I end up spending the loot on other more functional stuff. Like headlights that I just ordered. Has anyone ever tried hidupgrades.com? They make 7" hid kits for classic cars. They are plain jane so inexpensive but are high quality apparently. I figured most ppl with classic cars would want high quality stuff. Plus I'm tired of the damn 1/4 candle light the jeep has stock with headlights and fogs combined.

    I know there are, I just don’t want to mess it up and then either have to fork over money now to replace or be stuck with messed up ones for a year.

    I already upgraded my headlights though. Plan on adding some KC lights to the bumper after I replace it in next week or so.

    Apply some painters tape as a guide for the final design and a dremel with cutting blade will give you the control you need. Door edge trim will correct any minor errors. Local CL might have stock unpainted flare takeoffs for cheap as other Jeepers upgrade to the spendy metal flares. Just trying to inspire you to cut them when your ready.
