get some tin snips and cut the lips. use something like a baseball bat to wedge in between them and "roll" them up

just imagine this was your rear fender lip. where each blue mark is, you'd want to cut your original lip. then after cutting 3 to 4 slits in the lip, get a baseball bat and put it between the fenderlip and the top of your tire. just pry with the bat to "roll" the lips under the bed.

I can't see that tool working all that great. Unless you hace a perfectly round top on the wheel opening and it is parallel to the wheel at every point along the arc.
I took my tire off and used a 2" swuare piece of wood and hit it with a 2lb hammer. Rolled it completley against the inner wheel well and I did not cut slits in it.

well, you don't need the whole wheel well to be rolled, just the part where the tire would make contact with the fender.. and wheel/tires are round, so it would take care of any problem areas.

Well there is doing it the right way and doing it the hack way. I have thought about buying the tool and renting it out for a reasonable fee.

The tool is not designed to roll all in one shot so having a round shaped fender is irrelevant. You start off with a very small amount cranked into it and adjust as you go. It also has the ability to not only adjust vertically but change the angle of the roller.
