    I have 6" suspension, 2" body, and about 6" worth of fendertrimming behind the front tire to fit 38" TSL Radials.

    I'm in the same boat you are.
    I'm going to trim soon, but have been hard pressed to find any pics other than really chopped up ones, nothing clean.

    The front isn't a big deal, I'll just do mine the same as a K5 but the rear is gonna be tricky to do and make it look decent. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    Here is a picture of my Suburban with 8" lift and 36" tires. I do not have the fenders cut at all. There has been a time or two that the tire has hit it but nothing more then bending the lip of the fender.

    You probably won't have to trim the rear any. I'm running the 38's with no rear trimming.
