    I've got some pretty heavy rubbing on my front bumper now from recently adding much bigger meats. What are some ways you guys have counteracted this? I don't know that I want to totally destroy the inner fender so looking for those awesome and creative ways you guys have modded the plastic. Thanks in advance!

    So, you guys are saying unbolt the liner, push it forward and make new holes for it? Mine has some pretty solid bolts holding it to the fender it seems, not just rinky dink screws. I have a pro, so not sure if they are different in this area but seems like I would have to relocate whatever is backing up that bolt as well.

    I remember pushing mine forward a couple inches near the bottom. Some guys use a heat gun to do it. I don't remember taking off a screw.

    Yup, undo liner, see where that screw is up front.. I cut if right off, drilled hole for new bolt and it gave me a few more inches.. I have 37’s with Zero rubbing now... full lock and all

    Alrighty then! Sounds like it's going to make my butthole pucker up cutting on it like that, but guess that's the breaks when you have to have bigger tires. Appreciate the info

    OP, if you remove the bottom bolts you can see that the liner can be pushed forward. I used a heat gun and baseball bat to mold the plastic so it would sit there without pushing. Drilled new holes and bolted it back in.

    At full lock on reverse I was also rubbing the mudflap, gone.

    Interesting! I'll give this a shot before I start chopping on stuff. Getting real tired of having to Austin Powers all of my reverse turning.

    Are you sure you don’t mean +25. -25 would be sticking way the F out there.

    I looked at your truck on your avatar and I’m sure you mean +25.

    I was looking at the OP’s truck LOL. For some reason I thought he said he had +25. My reading comprehension is lacking lately.

    That’s exactly what I was doing. There is no way your rims are -25. I’m still on my stock rims which are +60. But I’ve read a lot of rim threads so I thought I had a good feeling for what looks like what.
