    What are you doing with it? Tubing up a rear bumper?

    You can't go past the body mount, which should be obvious, so take off whatever you need to fab the bumper you want up to that point.

    FWIW, I was going to do this, and have backed off now that I am on 35's and really not dragging it around at all.

    Im using square box with one end cut open as the base of the bumper ,and going from there.
    I would like to know if one spot is better than the other to hack at.
    It doesnt need to be super tucked in , just clean an able to fit the swing outs.
