With these flares, would cutting be the same as with any other tj fender flare? Can you trim a little more off the corners to fit 35's a little better like the metalcloak style? These seem like a cheaper alternative to metalcloak and a more durable option to the xenon flat tj rears I was looking at too. I won't mind trimming but I still want my inner plastic rock catcher thingie functional. Any more thoughts on this product or tips for installing? Silicone perhaps?

I'll answer my own question here for anyone who wants to read:
I talked to an LJ owner running these and he trimmed a significant amount off the smitty flare and his tub to get his 37's to stop rubbing with a 6" lift. I'm running 35's so this gave me a little hope that my tire will stuff well inside this opening.

I'll be ordering them next week, thanks fir the pics in this thread!
