hmmmm

i'll just end up slicing it on either side of the leaf spring end and maybe hit it with a body saw :)

removing the spare tire makes this alot easier too, as for as the initial installation....i found that out REAL quick!

but i was also removing sulastics at the same time...

all the bolts once pushed through half way or so had to be backed out to be removed....since there is so much tension nono
I just finished cutting the seam almost completely off and the crazy springs are still hard up against the bed... Does that have anything to do with the fact that I only have 17s? Would a larger rim solve the issue? I'm bout ready jus to let the springs clearance themselves by bendin the bed however they want to.:help

Is your bed unbolted at the rear and it still has pressure on it?

Now I'm REALLY curious what happens after I trim mine..

No I'm all bolted back up... Thinking about maybe tryin to space the bed up a little bit. It's tight enough against the bed to make a bump in the bed floor.
