TJ's with cut/trimmed fenders, not fender flares.

I'm looking for pics of TJ's where the owners have removed the fender flares and cut/trimmed the fenders to get rid of the fender flare mounting holes. I know I've seen a few on here before. I'm looking for some ideas and also the best tools to make a precise cut.

This is mine. BDDISI on here did the trimming for me and did a great job.
It'd look better with larger tires cause my 31s suddenly got smaller after a 1.25" BL on top of the 2.5" springs.

Another way is to sit on the pot, reach down and grip the bowl with both hands, and push against the floor with your feet.

I'm cutting mine now, I'm leaving a little bit of the curve off the tops of the fenders for strength. Man this takes a LONG time to do nice cuts.

what did you do about the holes left from removing the rear fender flares?

Here's a little hint how I get even cuts:



Basically find "reference points" on the left and right and measure equal distances from those points where you want to make the cut... do this as many places as possible, connect the dots, then go over the lines "free hand" to smooth the lines out, then go crazy w/ a 4.5" angle grinder with a thin cutoff disc





I am helping a friend do a 1 ton build on his TJ... whenever it comes time to hack his fenders up I'll try to do a write-up or video or something.

I'm about 2/3 done with the second fender. I didn't remove as much material as some of you but I'll post up pics maybe tomorrow in the daylight.

First night of work, tomorrow I will clean up the edges. I'm probably going to paint the entire fenders satin black?
