I think a Sawzall would be more appropriate.

Typically, when you want to run tires that are quite a bit bigger than stock on a vehicle with no lift, you will need to cut things. Nobody can tell you exactly what you will need to do since you provided zero details on the wheels and tires you want to run. Not to mention production tolerance of the vehicle. What someone else did to theirs may not work on yours. Best bet, bolt up whatever tires and wheels you want to run, and start modifying the vehicle so they don't rub. I'm willing to bet that a Sawzall will be the most appropriate tool. Is that more helpful?
Travis..

EDIT, you might try the Mitsubishi forum since the only thing Dodge on there is the emblems

I have always found that a grinder is a cleaner cut for fenders.

True enough, a 4" girnder with a nice thin cut-off wheel works really good. I was just going with the ol' stand-by response of "Sawzall"
