Calling all cut bumpers!

So i got my new BB lift, wheels and tires on and the tires rub on the front of the wheel well and the pinch weld. i made a few alterations but would like to see how others have corrected the rub before I make an ugly error. I would like to see some pictures of how people have cut their stock bumper to look better as well as correct the rub.

Tires look like Nitto Terra Grapplers. I have those on my xk.

yeah they are nitto terra grappler AT 265/70/r17. I have the MB chaos with -24 offset and they work without the spacers without altering the front bumper but i like them to stick out a little so I'm going to keep the spacers.

I like how you did the pinch weld. I think that is how i am going to go as well. It is in the body shop right now because my wife decided to rearrange another car's trunk. the guy had to replace the bumper and AC condenser and stuff so i asked him to alter the new bumper a little for clearance. we will see what he came up with and i may make some changes/improvements. Ill post up if i do.

Hopefully it works right.

Links fixed.

FYI you can bypass the whole heating/bending of the liner if you just use 2 self-tapping screws on each liner. I've done 3 pinch welds since then and have just used the self-tapping screw method.
