    My K5 is a 76. Form looking at the inner fender, there isn't much trimming that can be done. Do you relpace the inner fenders also ??? What all do you do besides just sawing the the fenders ????

    Ypu can either remove the inner fender, trim the inner fender & fab up a cover afterwards, or not touch the inner fender(which is what I did!) Take a look at my 76 GMC Jimmy 6" lift 2" body 38.5x14.50x15 TSL/SX's

    no. you cut part of it out, then trim back to the rear fender bolt. if you don't see it, trust me, you'll find it while your cutting
