    Back in the day, when I thought my truck would always be mostly a street truck, I bought some Bushwacker cut-out flares. A few years, some ton axles, and a set of boggers later, I realize they are in the d@mn way. Well, despite my desire to remove them, I haven't as of yet because of all of the holes they would leave behind. So, I got to thinking. What if I just used the outline of the flares to cut my fenders out huge. I assume this would get well into the inner fenderwells, but that could be dealt with. What do ya'll think? Has anybody done this? Do you have pictures? With 6" springs, I wonder how big of a tire would fit? My truck is 250 miles away or I would just look, but one final question, is there anything behind them that would prevent me from doing this (aside from possibly having to tub the bed)?
