    I have decided to trim up the fenders a bit but I want to keep most of my wheel opening molding intact. The molding is cut right at the side molding of my blazer and from there down it is just metal. I also want to keep a fairly straight line down the wheel opening. I checked in the fender trimming article from a while back and i want mine to be straighter than that...if anybody has done it and has some pics can you post em?

    i like the looks of Derf00's trim job but I couldnt find any good side view or closeup pics of what the trim looked like...

    Just tap it in...tappity tap tap...

    I cut my truck. But by the sounds of it you want it to look really nice. Good luck. Mine looks ok, but i was not worried about the body one bit.

    I used Steve Fox's for a reference, then decided how much I wanted to cut.

    Check my link below for pictures

    You can look at mine at the webshots page in my sig. Just look for the "cut fenders" album. I have now cut them back like Steve's but this is what I started with. I actually had to point it out to people before they even noticed.

    I recently cut my fenders. I studied Steve Fox's pics very carefully and all others I could find. I believe Steve's are cut 6" from the door and he runs 37's w/ a 4" lift. I also have 37's but have a 6" lift, so I chose to cut my fenders back 8" to begin with. Before cutting I took masking tape and tried several angles starting at the bottom and working to the top. I liked the one that intersected the curve at the highest possible point. So far it appears to give adequate clearence, and I did not cut any of the inner fender well.
