Yep. Cut 3" out of the flare and fender. Still got some finishing up to do, but the look is complete. I'll do the fronts next year....

Were the flares off Friday? I thought something looked off? Either way, Great job trimming them!

Making room for 315's huh?Laughing

Yep. No flares, and holes in the fender looked a bit odd.

It'll be a while before I get around to doing the front, and chopping, cutting, bending the other parts to clear the 315's. hopefully finish by spring.

Since you're clearing for the 315's what brand are you going with? lol,

Cutting looks clean, what did you use and is that just plastic fender cutting?

I love the Rocky Mountains, so they're at the top of the list. Only problem is they are about 9-10 lbs heavier than most other tires in 315's.

Cutting was both plastic for the flares, and metal on the fender. Used a jigsaw, and cleaned up with a Dremel. Then put some door edge trim on all the cut edges to finish it off.

Phase II almost complete. Gonna try something very different to box the cab mount chop, but waiting for the metal to come.

Just need to finish this, then cut the fenders and flares, and the 315's will be ready to go on...
