Trimming the valance ?'s

My 33's are rubbing a little and i think i may end up trimming the valance. Ive read about it but i havnt seen it done. Does anyone have pics of the valance after trimming? Also what is the best cutting tool for this job.

I used some shears from Sears lol, it actually wasn't that bad. It had to be done so I could leave the parking lot tho haha. When I got him I used a Dremel to tidy it up and that worked a lot better. Just get some permanent marker and mark off where you need to cut.

I made a thread on it, with pictures.. hold on im searching...

Dont use a cut off wheel

Use electric tape and tape where you want to cut.. use a brand new box cutter knife and score it like 2 times and it will break right off, no sanding or anything..

I know right??? It was so easy to whip the ranger in a parking spot and walk in... but i got tired of having a extended cab "2 seater" lol... i love the new truck, alot of room inside..

The tires are 33x12.5x15, they are for sale... too bad you live in ontario..
