Did some fender trimming

Well I finaly decided to trim up the fenders alittle bit yesterday, I decided to leave the rear fender flares on, I just moved the holes up alittle bit for more clearance.

Looks nice. Got any more pictures?

One thing that surprised me: My RE 3.5" kit has NO need for trimming (I do have full packs though).





That's w/ 31x10.50s too

No I dont have any more photos yet, I might be going wheeling on Saturday so if I do I will get more photos then, I decided to trim because my Rustys 3" lift has been on my XJ for 2.5 years and it has saged, and last time I was wheeling I allmost poped one of my fenders off.

I am still thinking about that, I really am not sure if I want to, but at the same time I think they would look good back on
