Cutting 7 inch fender flares....

Hey guys, I have a 1997 jeep wrangler sport, and I wanted to cut the fender flares and make them look like the bushwacker fender flares, I know there is some threads on this topic already but I haven't seen one picture with the 7 inch flares after cutting. Anybody done it before???

Why does it matter how wide they are? Just cut it to how wide you need it. It's plastic...

Mines look a little too wide, and am scare of cutting and then not liking the result. I know there is some people out there that have done it before, i also wanted to have an idea on what tools to use etc...

If your going to cut them cut them start at 7". If that's to wide just keep cutting till you like the look. You can use a razor blade or a jig saw with a fine tooth blade.

You could easily cut yours like that. When I cut mine ( not 7") I used blue painters tape to lay out how much I wanted to take off. When I liked what I had I used a jig saw and followed the tape.
