Has anyone cut out the spare tire well? It sits between the frame rails so they wouldn't be touched. That probably weighs a good 70 pounds. I wanna frame out the hole and lay sheet metal overtop and possibly run a diffuser in the space created witha bumper cutout. Just curious if anyone has done this and any problems I may run into.

Biggest issue is that the rear subframe is welded to it although it might only be the back half.

This is true I am sure only 20lbs will come out... I had to do that since I had to make a fuel tank outside the chassis my AWD project.



Much of the back portion is covered just for a uniform look however its not cut due to the subframe.
