Why don't you just trim or grind wear needed? That's what I did, took 2 minutes just sayin

As for the Front bumper, if you grind WHERE needed, you ruin the finish of the paint or chrome. I wouldn't do a redneck hack job on my trucks.

Ps

Wear is to grate (v.) or to clothe (v.)

Were is the past plural of the verb is

Where means "at what place" (adv.)

Matty I seriously doubt you've never not caught an autocorrect error but thanks for enlightening the community.

Anyways I have the stage 3 icon 4.5 with the front tei spacer and a 6 inch rear block. When I put on my 37s Toyo MTs I barely rubbed on the front bumper bracket. I ground the spot where I was rubbing (max half a cm or so) and badabing badaboom Done! Ultimately feel free to do whatever you want but what I did is in no way a hack job but hey that's just my opinion
