opinions on a bumper......

Ok,my dilemma at the moment is I rub a little at the corner of the bumper on a tight turn now since I went with a 38x15.5 tire.Im up 8" on the lift,I just wanted to ask if any of you had this issue,what did you do to fix it?Did you cut back the stock bumper or is there a bumper out there that doesnt drop as far on the corners?Im very open to suggestions,my buddy wants to shave the corners of the stock bumper to keep the stock look but I am always a little leary of the out come of the look when something just gets hacked away at lol.Here is the way the front sits now.

Get some 3/8" steel, cut some spacers and space the bumper out enough to clear.
