Re: fender trimming ( going FLAT)
The picture I saw was a cover shot of a cj that was laying on it's side, don't remember which magizine.It also had it's warn8274 lowered between the frame rails, very trick.
I've attached the rockers by welding homemade brackets from the cage to the body on the enterior and sandwiching the body with the cage and the rockers. You can only do it this way if the body is mounted solid to the frame as mine is. It's also connected to the outriggers that the cage is mounted to, I've skidded over rocks with both tires on that side off the ground with only gouges in the rockers.
Because of the shackle reverse I needed to move the back of the fenders opening rearward by about 4", this also called for the fenderwell to be cut out and relocated further back.
