Fender Flare trimming?

Well it has been a few years now that i have been running 36in TSLs on my Defender. I have not been using any fender flares at all. I recently decided to breal out the old ones to see if trimming was going to be in my near future. Has anyone trimmed to fit a 36 12.50 TSL? I have a Rock ware drop kit so i get decent tuck. I was also wandering if anyone knew if someone made flares for Defenders? I am tired of getting mud in my face and on the wrongside of the windshield. But i am not willing to give up those awsome TSLs. Suggestions?

There is a link in the mods section to an article about trimming for larger tires but looks like something screwed up on the server and the sites main nav page is not calling up for me.

Let me see if I can find the direct link to the write

Don't cut the matte ones... Order a set online from the UK and trim those. The matte finish ones are no longer available.

Scott is right, Paddocks Spares has a special on flares right now/ if you want to cut- all 4 for $100 including the mounting pushpins.

Great thanks for everything guys. I was going to cut the original one but now i am not. Guess i will go without for awhile longer. The fender flares i was hoping would be a cheap fix but there are other things on m list that are ahead of staying clean. Front Locker!
