    Need help guys! I have a 2011 Tundra that I had the front leveled and I put 33 inch tires on Friday. When I cut it sharp it scrubs badly on this metal guard. Would you guys think it would be okay to cut maybe an inch or so off the guard? My tires are 305,55,20 nittos. Thanks!

    It won't touch that bar at all will it? Guess that plate isn't that important and I don't go extreme off road or anything.

    Yep I took my skid place off, bent up the edges with pliers, hammered it down the rest of the way and then painted them just for extra rust protection. Took me 20 minutes.
