Trimmed fenders

Just did it today.
I scored the fenders after i marked them with a jig.
Then they just peeled off and i sanded them
Yay or nay?

Took an inch and a half off with a little wooden jig and a pencil taped to it

Jeep has a 3 inch lift with 33s, but the 33s only measure 31.5 :[

so if I get a Speedometer Gear to match the tire size change... I am actually getting the wrong size?

sorry I steered the topic off course.

The fenders look great

No, the discrepancies in advertised size vs. actual sizes of tires are accounted for. It's just like shopping for shoes or pants, some sizes fit while others are absolutely too big or small, even tho they say they are all the same size. You go by what the tire says, not what the tape measure says.

Looks good! How much did you take off? Do you have a pic of the jig you used or rough drawing?

Looks great! I did mine a couple years back except I cut off those pesky lights and angled the fronts in.
