i wouldnt recommend cutting for the rear , but more of a cut and fold method

like these XJs

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/t...a-pics-473056/

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/w...enders-632436/



this is the method i plan on using when i trim my rear fenders soon

the reason for doing it this way is because the rear fender is 2 pieces of metal that come togethor right at the fenderwell, if you just cut it away you will be left with a hole that will need to be welded shut

I hammered down the cuts then made some thin plates to weld over the tabs to clean it up
