    so, here is the skinny...
    I am running 33’s currently, with a 3” suspension lift. I thought to beef up my stance a little by adding 2” wheel spacers on all four tires, and now my fronts BARELY rub when I cut her all the way left/right. Has anyone else experienced and solved this problem? Or should I just accept defeat and take off the spacers? I really don’t want to cut into my bumper or anything crazy. Thanks in advance! 5210810D-5E36-4AE8-A7DB-449FB91A8E87.jpg 56EE9A3D-DDAF-4E7F-8CE8-523AEAA10C10.jpg

    First step is to isolate where it’s rubbing exactly. Maybe a heat gun will do the trick.

    It is just a 3” section of the front bumper on both sides, you think heat gun could shape it better?

    A dremel tool makes trimming neat and easy.

    Awesome, thanks friends! I’ll start my search for some good YouTube guides so I can get this done the right way
