From one Caleb to another, the best way is to cut them either right above where the stock flair mounts or right above where the top of the stock flair is.

Thanks guys



Just FYI,

My jeep started with a 3.5 rustys rear pack and 3 coils in front. When I did my 8.8 my rear gained another 1.5".... also the 8.8 is longer and mine does not require a SYE, it actually fixed the problem from when I did the lift. Hope it helps...

I'v noticed it seems like people are chopping there fenders more often for the lcog. I like it cuz I want a street/trail truck so lcog is better. just bolting on a "lift kit and 35s" is kid stuff. chopping fenders is commitment. The yellow wagoneer with the chevy 502 with like 40" tires with no lift and cut out fenders in the jp magazine changed me to a lcog believer.

mine is fine as a street/trail toy at 5/5-6". COG is all about how you use it, where you wheel etc.

Anybody not hack their fenders and just run the Xenons for the XJ. I think they look sick on a TJ but have not seen any pics of an XJ. I want to run 3in lift and xenons and run 33s but I could live with 32s.
