    Been meaning to do a write up on this at the request of a few people. I apologize because with work and buying a house, time has been short.

    Trim with a pair of shears as I have highlighted below. Leave the bottom two holes intact, but redrill them about an 1" to 1 1/2" forward. When you reattach, you should be able to simply put the studs through the new holes and it will hold it back out of the way. I then trimmed the bumper end cap extensions back flush with the liner (where the blue arrows are).

    No need for a heat gun.

    If you post a picture of the bottom of the liner, I can highlight it as well to give you a better idea.

    I drew the line to show where I cut on the bottom of my liner.

    Here's the pic you gave me. Just cut and then drill a hole where I made the blue line.

    Looks good. I probably didn't respond back in time, but I left the hole on the end in order to use it as a mounting point. Made the orange cut vice the blue cut in your picture.

    And if you want to finish it off, a pair of snips or shears will make quick work of the red end cap pieces that now stick out.

    Most helpful info I’ve seen on this issue, do not wanna do a hacky job, I was assured by mechanic all my new stuff would fit and not rub yet when I picked it up he had removed liners and said it did rub slightly, need to get em back in without butchering my new baby.... thank you!

    I went back to the shop that put on my wheels and tires, They were hesitant to hack up my new well liners and they suggested I put a half inch spacer upfront and that would solve the problem without hacking or heating liners to avoid rub, I may just go that route, It’s a super minor modification to the suspension that I think I’m willing to live with

    Also 2018 liners seem to be different than those in those pics that were so nicely highlighted and diagrammed by BRINGIT.... trying to maintain stock suspension with even a mild tire/wheel change proving tricky on 2018... 0 offset may have been where I blew it, looks awesome though!

    I believe there is/was some guys that were able to shim or add some washers to the front bumper mounts to give some extra room as well, its been awhile so my recollection isnt 100%. Just ginin ya some extra options before you drop the cash on spacers.

    I’m going to order the Coachbuilder 1/2” bumper shims. Have anyone else used these?

    I’ve seen folks use washers and other trim the front inner fender but I’d like this build to be a clean as possible.

    I used the CB bumper shims and they work great. They provide a lot of room for such a simple mod.
