Cutting rear quarters

So, i've been searching around but can't find any details on the subject, i may just be searching the wrong keywords though.

I would like to cut the quarter panels on my 98 Cherokee behind the fender opening/below the tail light to move the bottom of the quarter up to just below the tail light, hopefully i'm explaining that clearly. I removed my plastic corners and the way it looks without them and without it being cut actually looks worst than the plastic corners did.
What i'm wondering, is if there's any details i should know before cutting into some of this stuff as some of it looks like it could partially be structural, also, how far i should go in with it on the back. I noticed it's definitely at least 2 layers of metal there, i originally believed it would just be body metal but now i see there's an extra piece there that's back about another 1-2" once you get up that high.
If anyone has done it and could give me some advise or if anyone knows someone that has a write up on it and could post a link that would be great, thanks.

Here's a pretty good write-up on cut and fold for the rear quarters. Cut And Fold Rear Lower Quarter Panels - The Right Way!

Thanks, that will definitely be helpful, i never even thought of just rolling the pieces up, i was just going to cut them clean off then weld in a piece of plate, that seems much easier.
