Front Air Dam Trimming

I think I may go with The "combo" wheel/tire that I learned about here. Consists of the 15x8 Level 8 Tracker wheel and the 33x12.50-15 DuraTrac tire. I'm told this combo will fit great with my stock Unlimited Sport (no off-roading yet) but I will have some tire rub on the front air dam at full steering wheel lock...but it can be easily trimmed.

Since its a popular combo for guys on this site, I was wondering if anyone could share pics of what it means to trim the front air dam. THanks in advance!

Super easy, I just did mine with a dremel. Only needed about an 1/8 -1/4 inch off. Seems to be working out fine.

For street driving I had no rub at all. Maybe for off road but I'm not sure.
