I have NO idea what ya'll are talking about - I jacked the car up - and i can see where the bumper is mounted to the car it sticks in about 1/2" or so - is that supposed to be it?? like 1/2" by about 2-3" lengthwise? If I cut/file that down - wont my pain start chipping/flaking off the bumper?

Can anyone take a pic?

it is that 1 inch section of bumper that starts at the tip of it and goes to about the cutout to where the screw is. that is very minor and worthwhile to cut if that is all that is rubbing.

so filing that down/cutting that isn't going to cause my paint to start chipping off of my bumper?

Put a chalk in the whole fender area, drive around, once it rubs stop and observe the fender.

Tommy...you seriously DO NOT need a dremel. I used a dull knife i had handy. Just start on one end and give it a little bit of pressure and it'll cut right off...it should alleviate alot of your rubbing issues.

That piece is like cutting through butter...won't put up a fight at all.

yeah you might will. i'm not familiar with the stock sizes. ;)

but if you decide to trim the tab...i would....and i wouldn't worry about paint peeling...no one here has had that problem.

Get a utility knife from home depot. The bright yellow one with
razor blades in it. It will melt through your bumper like warm
butta. It won't peel, the paint for the bumpers and bodykit is
very flexible. Definately try this before you got out and do
anything drastic drama snoop.
