Long story short, I am trying to figure out how to get an extra couple inches of clearance in the front wheel well of this truck to accommodate the 285/75/16's that are on it. Or find a different bumper that doesn't wrap around.

Longer version: They are hand-me-downs from my old (exact same year/make/model) truck that was totaled by a careless driver. The problem is the bumper is too close on this one. For the moment I've pulled the bumper forward, but that was just to get it where I could drive home. Every place I've called says there's nothing for it, get a different set up. I can't afford another couple thousand to get new tires/wheels again. I'm having trouble believing no one has successfully done this mod before.

ANY/ALL SUGGESTIONS APPRECIATED!!
