Rear Quarters trimming/cutting Q's

interested in finding out what has to be done in order for this to be accomplished...
where does the filler hose, fuel cap/housing have to be relocated to?
how much room for flex is really gained?
what are some popular fender flare options once done?

The photos you posted show a tj with a stretched wheel base, that is why the corners are cut/trimmed, this is refered to as a competion cut or "comp cut"

I wouldnt recommend this to the novice jeep modifier, it is alot of work, and your jeep will be out of commission for at least a week or two. longer drive shafts, custom control arms, brackets, brakelines etc..

But to answer your previous questions.....

The fuel filler assembly can be relocated just about anywhere you please, alot of people relocate them to under the driverside tailight

others choose to move it inside of the tub, and for the hardcore crawler, you might even get a tub mounted fuel cell.

as for flare options..... there are not very many that are sold retail, most are custom jobs ... i believe poison spyder makes a very nice set of full corner guards with a comp cut that feature a flare. ... and they seem well built.

as for flex well ... you wont really gain any extra flex ... comp corner cuts are just for streched wheel bases really, but you can gain extra rear wheel/tire clearence with a hiline cut ... basically this consists of lifting your rear flare about 3" and cutting the excess sheet metal.

I purchased aluminum blank corners and cut out the wheel wells myself. Clean, no extra bolt holes or unused fuel filler holes. I also don't care for comp cuts. I've got a fuel cell.

As for travel, my constraint is the upper arms against the tub so that's what I set my bump stops to prevent. I then cut out just enough wheel well to perfectly fit my 37" tires.

One more shot

And unless you have no job, a money tree, and all the time in the world it will take you longer than a couple weeks to properly address everything that needs to be addressed. Every stock mount needs to go, the stock shock/gas tank crossmember will need to go if you want to maximize up travel, and you'll need to build an entirely new suspension around your axle's new position. My entire factory rear frame was cut off and replaced with a new section that I built.
