reguardless between 4.5 and 6.5 you should still cut the same for a 35" tire IMO

im at 6.5 and 35's. for the front i cut along the line where the stock flare met the fender, and the rear i did the relief cuts and folded it before the seam. turned out good, tires dont rub anywhere on the fenders

I wont bust on you like a lot of people would, but future reference, with the exception of the most specific questions, the search function can almost always yield what you are looking for. This is a big community, if you are wondering if something is possible, there is more than likely 15 guys that have done it and they probably have a writeup for it. Lucky to have such a great forum.

Back on topic, lots of people with different variations of that setup on this thread:
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f59/x...-lift-1129731/

Im on RC Xseries 4.5" and I feel i would have plenty of room for 35's with proper bumpstopping. My 33x10.5's have all kinds of room.

New trend. Gonna call it "Page 100 Thread Redemption." It will likely be of no actual help to anyone at all but wtf right? Cheap bourbon inspires me.

Empty_Pockets never got a pic, so Ima hook you up way too late now that you probably dont care anymore.

4.5"/35's:


Jokes aside, several of us floating around now that fit the criteria. May be beneficial to the google search crowd. Post up!
