It seems it would be easier to cut with the fender on......and i assume.i trash the support fender or bracket under the fender?

You'll need to trim the support bracket, but not trash it.

You can just barely see the bracket under the support rails on the side.

My fender is cut just like Dirty Dawg's, except the rear is cut more parallel to the ground.

Wish I could help, but I have no idea. While I'm no stranger to a wrench, there are some things I'm not interested in doing (messing up). Someone else cut the fender, and I wasn't present when it happened.

Support fender is definitely underneath it, and the fender is mounted in the stock position (stock fender holes).

If this helps, here's the directions I gave the guy on how to cut the fender... For the sides, I said to follow the line of the chrome struts, then cut straight back. For the back, I said to cut it in a straight line directly above the stock license plate holder holes.
