    \"Cut-Out\" Fender Flares

    Does anyone out there have these on there rig? I would like to see how they look on a K5. Also; how much trimming is needed to put them on, and could more trimming be done if needed?

    Thanks, looks like there is lots of room for the tires.

    they wern't kidding about trimming, I would have to remove my front side running lights. How do you know where to cut, do they give you a template?

    You can see many pictures of my cut outs on either of my sites. If you go into trails that are narrow or rock crawlin then don't get them otherwise they are great for looks and keepin mud off your rig.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see my orange/white Jimmy on this post--thanks, SlyDog! Maybe I will learn how to post a pic someday. There are more pics of this and my other truck which also has cutout fenderflares at my website <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.bigerik.coloradoK5.com>http://www.bigerik.coloradoK5.com</A>. You might also note that these fenderflares are in the dump now because they got annihilated while four wheeling. They look great, but they are plastic, and trees break plastic! I further trimmed the fenders in a major way with a plasma cutter and will post pics soon. No more plastic flares for me; I'm just hopin' I don't get a ticket--so far, so good.

    I'll be installing mine soon. If they break I'll be making the same style out of sheet metal and a tube frame, but make the opening bigger. I plan on also making new inner fenders using diamond plate with the panel facing the engine removable so I can work on the engine from the wheelwell.
