How much are you lifting it? You might not have to trim metal depending on lift height, just plastic and the correct length bumpstops.

a lot of people do including me . Cutting off the fenders is the easy part; the hard part is making fender wells so all that crap doesn't go everywhere. I cut up an old washer and used the sheet metal to make mine. But then again mine is the "cheap jeep".
