Fender Flares

Im looking at new ones. I like to see what you have and did you have to do any trimming? What brand you have with a pic if you can. I really wish i could go back to YJ style flares but I cut my fenders out

They are. We went with the Rugged Ridge knock offs at first, but they were crap with a capital C.

I didn't HAVE to trim the fenders to get them to fit at first, but when I went to 33's I had to trim so the tires didn't rub.
