Sawzall, Jigsaw, Cutoff Wheel

Just depends on how much lift, what tires size, axle location, and most importantly what vehicle your taking about.

I've trimmed mine "a little" on my 85 4runner....
~4" of lift, 2" body lift, 36" Iroks, 108" wheel base (stock is 103)

From my understanding with NARROW 33"s and stock rims with no lift, they will just barely rub. PM Toyofast on Pirate4x4.com for more info because I think he was doing it on his daily driver. He might of cranked the torsion bars....

You want a 22mm socket on a 1/2" impact gun. Don't waste time with doing it any other way. Use lots of WD40. You will need to hold the top part with a wrench. Can't remember what size that was. Maybe also 22mm. Just follow the two bars along the frame. I just got done cutting mine all out!

BTW you forgot to tell him to jack up the vehicle and block it so the front suspension is off the ground before you start, otherwise you will stip out the threads...... Been there done that!!!!

I did not want to do my T-bars so I did a 2" body lift instead. Clears 33s easily. I also trimmed my fenders first because I was impatient and wanted to get my new 33s on before I had any lift. Well I can tell you that fender trimming alone is not enough but a jigsaw with a little tape over the bottom so that it doesn't scratch your paint makes a nice clean cut. Much better then a zawsall.
