    If i wanted to go say 37X12.50 or 14.50.... w/ my 6in lift where would i need to cut the fenders... how should i cut em and how much should I cut them? Would thbis be a simple job? Or would it be tough and time consuming? I really wanna go 37s w/ a 4in lift actually. Who knows... would anyone be intersted in buying 5.5 blocks .5 adda leafs and and front 6" springs? lol. Thanks guys.

    I measured along the bottom lip of the fender behind the tire 6" forward from the door edge and using some masking tape and a flexible straight edge drew a line up to the arch of the fender. This is an aggressive trim job that will require some trimming or other solution for the inner fender well. That should be enough for 37's and a 6" lift. I have 36's right now with a 4" susp and 1" body lift and it looks like I might be able to get away with a 38...

    Check out the project UAV link off the home page...my fenders are patterned off of Steve's.

    I'm running a 4" lift w/ 36's. I honestly think that I can run a 37 after I cut mine. The cut was simple. Took some time to try and make it look good, but it wasn't hard.
