Sanding won't do you any good! You will need to do the Pinch Weld mod and cut the weld behind the plastic peice then hammer it to the side and then melt the plastic and form it to the bent over weld.

I just don't understand why it's rubbing? The RC 2" lift prefers you to run a 265/70/17 and that's what I have on it

It happens to eveyone. The PW mod is very easy to do and will gain you a lot more clearance

So just cut the metal behind the plastic piece and then either mold the plastic or beat it back with a hammer?

I did the OME HD with 265/70's and had to do the PW as well. It's really simple, i did it in an hour or so and had no rubbing issues since then

No you make horizontal cuts about every inch or so along the weld then beat the over with a hammer untill they they are flat against the fender well and then you put the liner back on and hear the plastic up with a heat gun and massage it towards the fender well to flatten it. Go to the DIY sticky up top and scroll down. You will see a walkthrough of the mod and it's very detailed. Great write up, it's the one I used when doing mine.
