    Yeah it's sawzall time. I just cut up my brand new fenders to fit 36's (even though I cut enough to fit 38's) and it's not really that painful. I think it looks a lot better to tell you the truth. I haven't taken really taken any pics of the fender cutting but I've got trail pics that show it pretty well.

    Time for a trim.. I personally like the "trimmed" fender look better than stock. Check my link below for pic's of my fender's.
