If you're getting rub and don't want more lift then yeah cut em. It'll look better than having the exposed flare holes. I'd only cut off as much as you have to though... at least that's what I did and I think it looks great.

I'd go with rock rails instead of the cladding if you're looking for protection.... just my 2 cents

I has to be hosted online somewhere. Then all you do is hit the IMG button when posting and cut/paste the link.

I would reccomend trimming the fenders. It really isnt that difficult. With an older xj of mine i never trimmed the fenders and if my tire stuffed up in the wheel well kinda hard it bent the crap out of the fender and it looked really tacky after awhile. I would recommend using a jig saw and then use some finer sand paper and smooth the edges. Make sure before you cut you use something like masking tape to put over the paint otherwise it will trash your paint. Youll be glad you did it.
