Looks like I need to notch about an inch of the rear bumper out and about 10" wide.. Anyone done this to make a 33" tire fit stock, w/no BL, etc.? I've tried airing down the tire to 12psi, still no good..

Yeah, I hadda do it to mine when I was running 33's and no body lift. Here's a pic (not the greatest pic, but all I could find in a pinch)...


That worked fine and I just hadda widen it up a bit to get the 35 on there now (temp fix 'til I get a carrier...or rip off the tailgate Rolling Eyes ). A grinder will do the job for ya.....lotsa love here for the grinder Mr. Green .

I have the adapter that raises up the spare, but I think the tailgate is taking more abuse than it needs, so I'm ready to grind..

I'm going with a new Jeeperman bumper/carrier... I appreciate the offer though, so, are you Dan's roomy with the new rockers? You should bring that TJ up to RC on sunday so I can see them..
