I can tomorrow. I used 2 inch painters tape to make a straight edge and cut the flares with a pneumatic angle grinder. I then filed the edges and installed door edge molding around the edges.

Dropped my tank (w/warn skid plate) and rebuilt fuel pump. Installed TW shaft, cleaned 8.8 and filled with oil. Tomorrow I'll give starting it and driving a shot.

Had a decent shimmy from 40-45 and everything above 65, so I got my tires road force balanced and rotated. Now I can't get it above 40 without it shaking itself to pieces :

Finished lift last night! Still need to install rear wheel spacers and front sway bar disconnects. Then I have front axle seals, pinion seal, wheel bearings and ball joints to install when I get to it.

Make sure you don't have one that's out of round. I had one tire that had a visible 'hop' when rolled across the driveway. Caused a vibration that was noticeable when on the back, and dangerous when at the front :/

I'm going to a different tire shop here in a bit to see what they say. The tires only have 10k miles on them with very little noticeable wear. I may just have them put the front tires back in the rear like they were before.
