    Hey I need to see some pics or get some info from the guys... How far did you trim back? Did you cut the inner tub? Or just to the edge where it turns inward? Does anyone have any close shots of the inner fenders taken from the tire side? I am ready to do the cuts, just need to know how much to take off.
    This is concerning the front wheelwells BTW.

    Hey there Gold! Great idea... I think I have problems with the MPs here now. I have 4" susp, and 3" body with 35x12.5 15s. They rub when I turn and twist the truck up.

    Hey thumper, I'm running a 4" lift and 35" MT's and I had to trim a little.
    I started 6" up from the bottom of the fender and cut a straight line down to 2 1/2" rearward at the bottom. I did'nt have to touch the inner fender. Does that make any sense? Damn I need a scanner![​IMG]
