    If you're getting bigger wheels and it rubs, you can buy a CMC plate. You grind away a chunk of your inner wheel well and weld the plate in. It creates a little bit more room for your bigger wheels. It's not as scary as it sounds.

    Some also call it a body mount chop. Anyway, it's a modification to the cab body mount by the front wheel well. Bigger tires can sometimes rub or hit the body mount. To fix the problem, part of the body mount is cut away and a new steel plate is welded in place to create more space and prevent tire rub.

    Like Joonbug says, some vendors sell the steel plate to be welded onto the body mount once it's cut. If you have the cutting and welding tools available, you can do it yourself. Otherwise, a 4x4 shop or a fabricator can probably do it for a fee.

    I have a few pictures of our body mount chops that I have taken during various stages of the process on a few different vehicles. We typically do 2-3 a week.

    Once they are completed, they are painted with the black epoxy based chassis paint by VHT, it seems to hold up the best.

    This is a pretty common thing with all Toyota's as they don't mind a tall tire, they just don't like a wide tire. We do the body mount chops on any Toyota running 285 or bigger. We plasma cut the mount for a more precise fit and the plate is cut on our CNC plasma table. We also do a couple brakes to get the most clearance possible.
