I'll take some pics of my since my car is on jack stands. But yes you will need to do it if you don't wanna rub and all you need is a dremel tool and you can do it yourself (I did)

When your at SRD have wade pull the tabs off the front fender lining and tuck it into the fender and have a slit cut where he stops the rolling on the front fenders.

Try to pay extra (or you can do it yourself) relocate rear bumper tab screw I would say 3-4 inches back from its previous spot. And the excess metal trim it off. Also trim off some of the fender from the bumper.

After all that you shouldn't rub at all.

My fronts still do a bit though I am slammed but its because the tires are hitting the inside top part of the lining/fender.
