    i took the sway bar off the blazer and now have major rubbing during flex. Ive been readin threads about trimming. Do any of yall remove the wheel well? I guess what i really want to see is overall how much and were do people trim the most often. Id like to see some more pics if possible. Im running 36's on 4 inch suspension and 3 inch body. Thanks for the help.

    i think with your combo youd be fine leaving the inner fenders on. just a little bit of trimming.

    7" of lift and 36's and it rubs? I have 3" of lift and 37's and they clear. You might have to limit up travel too. Here is a pic. I still have inner fenders.

    What i did was cut 3" back and then folded the inner fender against the floorboard. From there i flexed it out in a ditch and still rubbed, so i just took alil more where i thought it hit.Since, i have cut the part that is folded against the fender to that it will stop getting hung on the tire and folding forward.
