Cutting stock fenders?

Anyone ever do it? The PO took the fender flares off and I hate the way it looks. I dont want to spend money on fender flares that im just going to replace with new fenders. So anybody cut up their stock ones?? Lets see some pics if you have.

I cut mine just below the radius and followed the line around to the grill.

The previous owner of my YJ cut the front fenders... I'm not a fan, but until I can afford aftermarket fenders they're fine.

Mine looked alot like bigdhamYJ then I added tj flares and cut them to fit. Craigslist is a good source for tj flares, people always selling them to replace their faded ones. My front fenders are fiberglass so they are extra thick and not as flimsy as stock sheetmetal
