If I'm not mistaken, the cut begins right below the screw that holds up the mud guards right? The part that is rubbing is right at the screw. Only when I turn hard in one direction. This is a good mod to know. ThanksDon't forget to remove the fender liners before doing this.
Alot of peoples have done it, I don't recalling anybody's truck falling apart driving down the road, I guess it's false.

Mine looks the same way... weird... I'm just waiting on rims than I'ma put my 35s on ... Than I'll see if I have to do this modMine doesn't look anything like the original picture.
Looks like there's a bolt sticking out with a bunch of goop on it. Grinded it down anyways.
9" width rims, (I'm assuming), with 4.5" BS stick out 2" more than stock, so will often rub with 33's, even with a leveling kit.I just put 275/70-18's on mine with 18" rims on a 4.5 backspace and my tires rub. It seems like it rubs worse on the driver's side than on the passenger side.
