    I cut mine. Every six or so inches in the area I wanted it to curve. Some don't want the curve so they cut in one place and bend. My sheetmetal definitely isn't smooth.

    I took the center out of my core support and welded it back together again.

    I smashed mine on trees until the whole truck was about 6" narrower.
