How to for Chopping JK fenders. On a stock Wrangler this will allow fitment of 35's with no lift, 37's with a 2.5" (depending on which factory springs you have, you may need a .75 spacer)

Then finally got off my duff about my fenders. Since the high clearance set that I want is still on back order, I decided to take matters into my own hands...



:twisted:

So I started taping and laying out the lines.






Took a deep breath. Started cutting...





Sanded down the cuts, and threw on some of the door edge molding that you can pick up at any auto parts store.



Finished!









35's are tiny!!!

Thanks for posting that how-to. Did you originally post that on the JK forum? Seems like I've seen those somewhere or something similar to it.

Okay... missed it on LOST. Maybe I mistook it for some fender chops on JK forum.
