Default SF front or rear bumper triming ?

Has anyone every trim the front bumper or rear bumper on SF? Looking for ideas to possible gain more clearance improve angles. I don't really want to hack my car to pieces lol. I do have a custom light bar nothing fancy in the front.

Thanks

Had a change of heart. Going to leave it alone . I'll just wait for the day I get custom bumpers with swing out tire carrier.

You can always wait until you rip off your bumpers naturally. Then you'll know that you actually need better approach angles, as opposed to just wanting them.

Yeah that's kinda why I was asking. The last weekend I hit my front bumper and fog light. Nothing crazy just made some scratches and bent my fog light bracket. Think I'll just what for when I build a bumper.
