need a little more space in the rear fenders..

when i flex it out all the way, it rubs a tiny bit.

i read somewhere that i can undo some supports that will let me push the bedsides out a tiny bit.

anybody done this? and have pics?

just do an Add-A-Leaf. it's easy and doesn't give your truck TOO much rake

you need to cut away some of the metal from behind the flare if you have the plastic flares.

it cut my 33s up pretty bad till i cut it, then had to cut a little more for the 35s.

Casey carries tin snips in his truck for it
