    same shit as everyone else
    Ok so I started to do a cab mount chop today. I did the driver side and I'm glad I added the clearance. But... What is the adverse effects of cutting those welds? Also, I only gained less then an inch of clearance. How are you guys fitting 35's without more lift? I have about 3 inches right now. I will be adding a new plate bumper before new wheels. Here is a pic of me cutting and tomorow I will add more for sure. My cutting wheel needs to be replaced! :cool:

    All the guys who have 35's on 3" of lift have aftermarket front bumpers, and had to cut their fenders....the actual fender, not the liner....

    I cut my cab mount back about an inch, have an aftermarket front bumper, removed the inner fender lining, pounded the pinch weld flat and grinder off about an inch of the actual fender.
