Front Wheel Well/Fender Trimming - Clearance Issue

Curious, would anyone have pics on how they trimmed the front fenders for clearance issues when going to bigger tires?

I've been told that what is cut can be covered up with installing bushwackers. I've trimmed a bit off mine and haven't had any issues yet, however,,,, I just want to make sure I can take off as much as possible, too minimize any issues down the road.

Yes, they can be trimmed aggressively and yes fender flares cover the work. Just leave enough for the fender flares to match up to. You only need to trim the lowest 6"-8" for tire clearance. Maybe less depending on lift.
