With the lift and bigger tires, I still needed to do a little bodywork to make everything clear the front tires, especially when turning at full stuff. First, we pulled the front bumper and tossed it. Pounding the body seams on the firewall with a 16-ounce hammer was enough, but in the front it would take some serious pounding. We finally decided that the Sawzall was the best answer and trimmed a portion of the front fenders and flares. Keep posted, as we will be hitting the dirt with all the cheap truck buildups in the next few months.
