    Hi, I’m new to this tw. Pls let me know if I posted in the right forum.

    So I’m running 315/70 on my dcsb
    And I did the aggressive cmc and pinch weld mod. Now I need to trim the metal fender and fender flares. Anyone know someone or a shop in the Central Valley or Sacramento area that can do this. Thanks

    Do it yourself, it's super simple. Remove your flares being careful not to break any clips or just order clips in advance cause they're prone to breaking. I use a jigsaw to make my cuts in sheet metal and a dremel for the flares. Rubber trim is used after cutting and will hide any imperfections in your cuts. I'll look up some threads for you and add them to this post as I find them.

    Right on. The toughest part is getting a good straight cut on the flares.

    If you decide to try it yourself, I just cut my fender flares using a jigsaw with fine metal blade and the bed fenders for a hc bumper with an angle grinder and a metal cutting wheel. Went perfect.

    I'd stick with the jigsaw for both since you can get far more accurate cuts with it.
