    i've read the articles and i'm ready to cut my fenders, but i have some questions. can Bushwacker cut out flares go on fenders cut like the UAV's? my mom says that if i cut them i have to get flares shortly afterward. so if i cut em like the UAV's what flares will work?

    Are you gonna be doin a lot of trail riding? If so and theyre gonna be tight trails I wouldnt use any fender flares. Theyll just get ripped off and end up being a waste of money.

    Unless you do flares like mine. I have some pics on the link below. Best part is they are cheap (mine were free) and will not brake.

    You need to cut according to the directions, for opening up the wheel well. If you are talking about lopping the bottom off, I see no reason why you couldnt chop the flare off also.

    BB62 has a good point about ripping them off. Waste of your money. Wayne has flexible flares that will still get pulled off if rubbed up against a tree hard enuff, but they wont break, so you can put em back on.
