Request: Pics of XJs with fenders cut, but with flairs

I am going to have to cut my fenders soon, i even had to bumpstop my 31s, and 33s will be here in no time. What r u guys doing for flairs? Any pics? Sometimes i think it looks OK just cut, other times i think it needs flairs. Edit: and i don't want to spend $300+ on some bushwackers or similar

The heep

I cut my front fenders from the side markers straight to flares. and then i used some rust corrision stuff on the cut metal and cover it with black door trim.

ppl take off flares and trim up the wheel wells for the front and the back is cut and fold method. I cutted to the side marker and used door trim to finish up neatly.
