    Sawzall is the tool of choice, but a die grinder with a cutoff wheel will work also. What is your goal in doing this, simply gaining more tire clearance? You should have some kind of flare on there to avoid the fuzz, most YJ folks use TJ flares.

        Justin, I'm in the process of putting TJ flares on my 94 YJ - the fenders are marked. If you want to see how much metal is removed from the rear of the opening, I can shoot a picture tonight and post tomorrow.

        BTW - if you have access to an air body saw, nothing can touch it short of a plasma cutter for trimming fenderwells.

          I took the Jeep to the plant and cranked up each wheel with a tow motor, then I marked around the tire with a magic marker on the fender. easy.
