I think Ive seen some people that cut out there fenders to fit 37s with a 2.5" lift. What is involved with this?

PM CreeperSleeper or Helocat (Mark @ MetalTech). They have both done it and would be happy to talk about it. One or both will probably post up.

From what I remember, there isn't nearly as much room to carve away at the rear as there is in the front.

Space down your shock travel and bumstops and stick to a 9" eye to eye travel shock. Clearance your rear quarters and run 37's, just stick to a narrower tread like Cooper STT.

With your body lift, narrow 37"s will probably fit. Will need some bump stop extension in the rear, 2"? The only trimming I did was a small "Phil nip" to the rear flare.
