Re: Pinch weld question...

Nope, its an actual pinch weld behind the wheel well fender liner. Guys running bigger tires can hit said pinch weld with their tires causing issues. That's why its hammered flat, for clearance.

yes you will have to do it even if you didn't offroad at all. it will hit when you turn.

Re: Pinch weld question...

Remove the inner fender well lining, make radial cuts into the seam between the pinch welds and use a hammer to pound the pinch weld seam flat. You're also going to have to cut the fender well liner and either tape/fiberglass it up. I've used Gorilla tape and its held strong against all elements without fail.
