Alright, here's my deal. This weekend I chewed my fenders some. That made me decide to trim the fenders. I want a nice finished look and to protect the vehicle, so I also plan to install Bushwacker cut-out flares. Here's my question... The diagrams on Bushwacker's website says I would only trim about an inch or so. That won't be enough for me. One guy told me that I could trim further back than that and "flex" the flares to fit the opening. I haven't worked with the flares and haven't received them yet, so I don't now how stiff they are. Has anyone else done this? How flexible are these during installation? Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
