Question for you guys who have done this job. It seems to me the part of the bm being rubbed by the tire on my truck is only the very front edge, not that big protruding end. All the videos I've watched show people lopping off a lot of needless material. Id like to avoid welding in the plate if possible. What do you guys think? Anyone just grinded the BM down instead of cutting it?

I have a 2" lift already. 285/70/17 at3w tires

Thanks

Question do you take it off road. the reason I ask is I had a slight rub after I went to a 8" wide wheel . it would rub pulling in the driveway. but when I was off road they would rub much harder when the truck was twisted up off road. this is what I did. no more rub. I would be concerned about the sharper edges if you did not weld in plates. my tires are at 8-9/32'S if they were new at 18/32'S it would have rubbed hard. I am lifted and run 285-75R/16'S

Tires are expensive. The stock mount is far bigger than it needs to be. Welding in the plate isn't required.
If you do anything beyond pulling over a curb, you're gonna need to cut more off.
