started opening up the fenders for bigger tires eventually, first the back...

 

 

cut off everything but about a 1/2 inch using a jig saw with a fine tooth metal blade in it and the orbit action turned off:

then scraped the foam insulation out from between the metal so i could bend the pieces together easier:

pair of pliers and vice-grips to start a crease where i wanted to bend the metal, then just lots of BFH:

cleaned up the mess with a sandpaper flap wheel on the grinder:

i messed up the rear corner on both sides though by not leaving enough metal when i trimmed to wrap back into the wheel well there and have a small hole to fill on those 2 corners, oh well, other than that turned out pretty good.

 

now i have to bondo one side that was already all messed up from previous encounter with a boulder, and then i can paint both sides.

Kris,

Since there is no "frame" per-se with a uni-body, you will want to get that seam welded back together at least in a stitched fashion...;)

on the front, just used the jigsaw on all of the fender, and a dremel with cut-off wheel for some of the interior metal behind the front part of the fender. used the door edge molding like most people do to cover the rough edge:
