Tire Rubbing Issue

With our Mastercraft seats, belts, Auto Meter gauges, and two extra bars welded into the rollcage at T and J Performance, we headed over to Total Chaos in Corona, California, to take care of our tire rubbing issue in the front end. This wasn't just a matter of bolting some Glassworks fiberglass on, as the tires rubbed the firewall pretty harshly too. This was the current OFF-ROAD staff's first crack at a Toyota of this era, and we weren't sure what to do. After looking at some other people's trucks and asking around, we learned that we needed to cut and section-out the firewall. Duh, yeah, that was obvious! But we didn't know how to go about doing it. Our friends at Total Chaos did, though.
