    i did the "UAV" cut job on mine and started with the inners. it was pretty easy, i would suggest that you use a cut off wheel for the job, letts you have more control and gives a good cut. in case ytou dont have the resty of the pics from Steves cuts i'll attach them.

    Hey Josh,If you need some help cutting them fenders let me know.I'd start with using masking tape and deciding where you want the cuts.Are you just cutting the rear of the front fenders?a sawzall works good,but can kinda tricky.A cut off wheel is slow.Cut a little,you can always cut more.You will prob. lose your front fender bolt that is right behind the fender.It looks like you've already cut the inners,if not then I'd remove them to cut.Cut them right below the bolt that holds them to the firewall.Any Q's give me a call.Mike

    I did the inners first, then tape off, a air saw workes the best, have fun.

    Question for Steve Fox. Where did you get your roll bar and the tire carrier you put in the back of the truck?
