    Hey, I am looking for instructions for the cab mount trim/chop mod. Photos would help too. I have a 3" levelling kit and want to stuff 275/75r18s in there. I have a Relentless Fab. bumper, so the front is fine... Im sure I will need to trim the body mounts a little though... any help?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I don't have any pictures but it's a easy but time consuming job. I cut the mody mount back just about to the opening of the mount hole. Then cut a plate of 1/8" or 3/16" steel to shape and tack it in place. Then i stitch weld it in 1" sections staggering the stitches by an 1" so i don't heat up the body mount too much. It's good to have a bottle of water near you to cool the metal if needed because the bushing for the body mount can catch fire if it get too hot. After that i just grind it smooth and prime and paint.
