    Ummm..break out the saw and remove those annoying body parts. All it costs is a saw blade or grinding wheel /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    yup

    or a zero rate in the front. 40 bones i think.

    or if you want a bit stiffer ride an add a leaf. a couple inches there. also about 40 dollars i think.
    or 6 inch springs....

    And a better idea than chopping fenders on a nice truck(I've seen your truck, you look like you care what it looks like, I'm with ya on that!) anyway a better idea would be zero rates with extended shackles. That would probably give you just enough room. A 3" body lift would work but they are a lot of fun to deal with /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif. If it was me I would probably just start over with 8 or 10" superlift springs so the fenders would be clear without cutting.

    If you have any intention of using your truck at all, I'd cut the fenders a little bit. It won't detract from the appearance much to get some additional clearance for 36s with 4" only.
