Mask it off with some tape, 3 thick. Use a 4in blade grinder and do it.

Dremel blades blow up to easy. Man what color is you truck? Just get a can of spray paint, sand, mask and spray it if it melts. And if you don't wanna do that get that edging stuff that will push over the lip to hide it.

one more question.....how far up are you guys notching from the very bottom of the roll pan. Its kind of hard to tell since the bumper wont go into place untill i have the notches already cut. I just dont want to cut any more up than i have too, so it all looks professional.

...And my truck is white so it will show burning very easy but i do have touch up paint. Iam very anal :nope: about how i do stuff because my truck is a VERY nice daily driver with good paint on it.

I havn't done this yet because my truck is in storage, But as far as how high to cut... I would only cut two vertical lines and then fold that piece under, so you just cut a little, fold it. If its not enough cut a little more, fold it under etc. I also made a carboard template of the bracket. If you did that you could mark it all out before hand. For example put the cardboard bracket on the frame, and at the roll pan just FOLD the cardbord (so you can see where the braket will be)and mark how high it is on the inside of the roll pan and than cut to there.   :biggthumpup:

Great Idea!

and tape the surrounding edges where it will be cut and use a side grinder with a cutting disc man.

That is exactly what I did. If your rig is really nice you could have a paintshop mix you a bomb can to touch it up with real paint

Alright, kinda bringing this one back from the dead but I installed my marlin bumper last week and thought i would find this and update how i did mine. first I held up the bumper semi in place with the bracket touching the roll pan where it needed to be notched. then i taped off the slot i wanted to make. the hieght was just a rough guess, 1 masking tape width down from the body line ( I eventually notched it a bit higher).

then i simply took my grinder with a cut off wheel and cut up along each line untill i got to the masking tape. I folded the piece under and up. while fitting it i noticed i needed a bit more room for the gussets. so i mad another little notch beside it. i did this in the same fasion. because its shorter I made a little nick in it with my grinder horizontally where i needed to fold it to make it easier.







Now worry about your licence plate mounting position.
