    Research. Little. Idk you were going LT you may not have to cut fenders. If going +3.5 lt you’ll have to replace fenders with fiberglass ones

    Just cut the fenders today still waiting for the dremel fuse so i can fix it to get the flares done clean and waiting for flare clips too still over thinking how i will cut the bumper as soon as i get the fenders done thats when ill plan how will i cut it and ill be reusing the plastic cover around the wheel thats for the other day.

    Update: in the end i used the jig saw it cuts like a butter screw the dremel lol i should have used the jig saw for everything i left so much metal tabs that makes my cut not the most beautiful lol just incase in the future i put a fender liner:annoyed:

    What is that you used on the edges of the cut fenders?
    I think that is the last thing I need to get my hands on.
    I really don't want a snorkle so I am going to have to figure out another solution to ripping all the liners out if need be.
