Body mount chop question

Hello, think I might need to trim my body mount a little to fit some larger tires. Any idea what this would cost? I also am looking for a shop in orange county or northern san diego willing to shave it back a little. From a quick search it looks like most are doing it themselfs but that would not end well for me...
Thanks

I did mine myself with an angle grinder and a cutting wheel. I got quoted 200 to have it done by a 4x4 shop, but I live in TX.

How much did you shave out? Pretty sure the grinding part I could do but welding and I do not get along.

Did mine myself also. I just followed this and cut about the same amount

you could probably get away without welding the plate back on and just keeping the mount open

but I also still have rubbing in the front of the wheel well on the plastic fender wells (which I have also cut and tied back).

a 275-65-18 = 32.07x10.83
or 285-65-18 = 32.59x11.22

Current size 285-60-18s = 31.46x11.22

I have 5100s in the front and back front is set to 1.5 I think, back has new leafs so it should be fine. I think both of the sizes above will make it but wanted to be ready if I need to trim some steel. It looks like the extra 1/2 inch extra will clear the mount but I have been wrong before.

Maybe crank up the 5100s a bit and I think you'll be ok with the 32".

But if you do rub - just go ahead and cut it - you'll feel better after you do. And like I said - If you don't weld the gap closed right away - you should still be okay.

How thick is the "cap" you welded on? what is the worst case if you just cut it and don't get it capped for a month or so?
TexasIslandBoy, how much do you think you cut off? Trying to figure out how much I should cut.

Thanks
