Was your liner difficult to install?

Good call. I honestly wouldn't drive it in the meantime if I were you. As mentioned earlier, the pinch welds are crucial to the integrity of the unibody at all four corners. I would hate to see what would happen to a passenger (or the Jeep for that matter) if you got in an accident with a compromised corner on the unibody. The pinch welds don't look like much, but they are there for a purpose.

Don't forget to prime it and put some protectant over it after the welding -- this is still necessary on bare metal.

Glad to hear you are rewelding it! It may be a DD with minimal off road use but a pot hole can do some damage also.

Hey guys I have a quick question. I have the RC 2 inch lift and 1.5 inch wheel spacers with 265/70/17 wrangler dura tracks. I had a good amount of rubbing at slow parking speeds and also coming out of stop signs with tight turns at faster speeds. My dad who is a mechanic did the pinch weld mod and all rubbing is gone at slow speeds. But at those faster tight turns there is still a lot of rubbing. It makes an awful sound too I cringe every time I here it because at first we cut the plastic thinking that would help but after it just rubbed on the metal and sounds much worse. It almost sounds like abs breaks or traction control coming on. So my question is, is that definitely my tires or could it be something else? Why would it not rub at full lock while parking?

You said your dad performed the PW mod but they tire is rubbing on the metal? If shouldn't run at all after the mod. If I misread and you did perform the mod fully then it sounds like something else is wrong. If the tire doesn't contact during full lock it shouldn't when turning.

[EDIT]
Do you feel any binding or anything when turning faster?

If you don't cut the metal with the plastic then obviously you're going to rub.

Yeah the metal is flush to the fender well. I personally think that it may be both because I get the feeling of binding but I also can hear the tread rubbing. Also if this makes a difference, when I step on the pedal hard from a stop trying to make a tight turn sometimes my jeep doesn't want to go anywhere. Like there is no throttle response and rpms don't even move. Then when it finally goes I get the loud rubbing. If it were to be some kind of abs, traction control or binding problem would it still happen if I turn my traction control off because I've tried that and it still happens?

Just cut the whole pinch weld off like I did and get it welded back together. I mean I have the exact same lift and spacers as you and I'm running 265/70/17 general grabber at2's with after market wheels and I have no rubbing

That's probably what it is during tight turns with any speed. Lemme guess, the sound is predominantly from the front outside wheel in turns?

NO - don't do this. It's a waste of time and not necessary.

All due respect, you really have no business recommending folks do that because you clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

There is a reason we all do the Pinch Weld mod a certain way. It's not because it's the easiest way or the simplest, it's because it works and is also safe. Cutting it off and rewelding does work but it is more work than necessary and I personally would recommend everyone do it the way everyone else has. Especially someone who is new to the forums and is learning. No disrespect intended. Sorry if it was rude in anyway.

If you want the most tire clearance cut it off and re weld it. There is not "jeep law" saying you have to do things a certain way. It's better to do things that work best for you then follow some one else

I stand by my statement in my previous post:

"......you clearly have no idea what you're talking about."
