If anyone out there is considering the bushwacker cut out fender flares, or wondering how much cutting there is, here are some photos to help you out.
For reference, I have a 10" lift....sitting on 40" toyos on 22s.
Now in the above pics, you will see the cut line on the front bumper.
However, I chose to shim the bumper forward 2.5", using longer Grade 8 bolts and steel block spacers. There is a slight gap now between the bumper and the grill, but the wheel well curve of the bumper fits perfectly with the cuts (without fear of chipping chrome), and I like the more aggressive look of the protruding bumper.
And a few nicer shots...
Feel free to message with any questions.
This was a fun project, and I love the outcome.
