    I draw my line out with a sharpie and go over it with the die grinder with a 3 inch cut off wheel . I don't go through the metal but only go about halfway and then I take the saws all to it . It gives you a strong line to follow and the sawsall blade won't wander as much . I do the clean up with a 4 inch grinder and a flapper wheel . Look at my avitar and you can see how far I cut mine . I'm running 42" tsl swampers and 6" springs .

    Every truck is going to be different, flex it up and look and see where you need to cut, its that simple.

    Not trying to be mean but you need to stop relying on the internet to answer all your questions, you have a brain for a reason, use it boy. :D You'll never learn if you dont try things on your own. You're not going to have CK5 out on the trail. Like I said bro not trying to be mean but with that rig you have put together you need to have some idea of what to do....

    Bash them for a while and you will know just where to cut. Mine have "self corrected" to the point that I know where to trim.

    I just cut mine last week with a sawsall...When I need to trim some more, I will use a cutoff saw as the sawsall was a little rougher than I would have liked....

    I have to agree, i'm going to use these to help cut my fenders. Rene (tRustyK5) also has some nice fender lines. Here are the pics.
