You should have them chop the body mounts at the same time to allow you more freedom of tire movement if you decide to go to a larger tire in the future. Have them weld a small plate over the hole that's left when they do the chop. It doesn't take long and most of us on the forum have had it done (almost routine).



I couldn't mount this wheel/tire combo without having first chopped the body mounts.

305's (34") Nitto Terra Grapplers mounted on Walker Evans beadlock wheels.



mounted on the truck - better perspective of how they look. 34" with an 11.5 inch width footprint at full inflation.

Installed my suspension lift kit! I think my ride became more stable, it feels way better than the spacer. I drove it only on the road, havent had time to test it out off-road. here is some pics
