Not sure if this should go in the tire forum but it is related. To those that have trimmed the stock bumper due to larger tires, how much did you cut and can I get some pics? I only need to trim a little but I'm tempted to cut a lot but curious to see what it will look like if/when I do. Thanks

It mostly depends on HOW large the new tires might be.

laugh

The easiest way to visualize this is to simply use a block of wood or rooled up newspaper, etc...of the same thickness as the added tire...and pass that between your CURRENT tire and the stuff that tire might hit.

You do it at straight, and turned tire positions, and if thorough, at stuffed positions too...and its pretty reliable.

So if you have 33's, and are contemplating 35's...a 35" tire sticks out 1" more than a 33"...so you pass a 1" thick object around the 33" tire, to see where a 35" tire would be at, etc.

I took the front plastic piece and had to cut about 2" of plastic, in the back I cut about 1.5 of metal and used a BFH.
