Mud Flap Trimmage

Those things will rip off fast on trails. I dont want to remove them completely. What would be the best way to trim them down & make the finished edge look proffesional;

Probably not tin snips. How about a peanut grinder w/ a cutting wheel?

trimmage

I`m thinking a jig-saw, then file it smooth.

Did you take them off to trim or do it while on the truck? How do they come off?
