I don't have chopped flares, I have Genright tube flares but still the same issue.

I used aerosol bedliner, seems to hold up pretty well.

Not sure why you would do anything just chopping the flares?

You have to cut the inner liner also, Not that noticeable on the front but it does expose a good bit of painted area under the flare when you trim the rears, some remove the rear liner altogether so the whole painted tub under the flare is exposed

The solution that worked for me is never washing my Jeep. Wait long enough and it all sort of matches

This. I did the same, front and rear because I did not want to hear gravel and junk tinknig on the metal or hitting the electronics up front.

I suppose that you could undercoat the rear fender wells to damp the noise. Having never tried, myself, I cannot tell you how effective that would be.

How did you cut the painted fender? Any tips? I've got painted fenders as well and was debating cutting them down but don't really wanna jack the paint too bad if I can help it.

Sure...

Here ya go I did a write up with details...
https://www.wranglerforum.com/f314/08...l#post22697329
I finished with body trim molding as others, but if I was going to do it again...
I think I would just tape the edge for paint and go black flat and call it a day...
The door edge trim had my fingers screaming bloody murder by the end...lol
And the thicker parts slip off at 80 so I finally used epoxy along edge then reattached.
Use some between the fender and the brace underneath and it will firm the fenders back up and prevent bouncing...
When you start the cutting...
Start on rear first since it is the easiest and you can get a feel better then move up to fronts...
I love the way mine look and they cost nothing extra except trim...
I would chop them in a minute again.
Good luck paint wont flake...

I would add...

I cut the front plastic reinforcement back, and reinstalled it. Then black RTV'd the bottom of the flare to it. They don't flop (even in very high winds), and the support is there where you can set anything on them and they won't give. They are a pain to take off and put back on, but I'm glad I did it like that.

I was able to get in underneath and cut what support I needed out of the way without losing the main support also. (without removal) then Juiced some epoxy in between and also have no flapping even at 85...Solid...its cool we both cut our fenders...
