I had never noticed them before installing my 35's on my JKU last week, but there is a sharp looking metal corner in front of each rear tire. Do i have to worry about that corner hitting my or puncturing my tire?
Especially offload when my rear axle is flexing like it is in below picture?

That is called your pinch seam and as skid kid said you want to cut it back to back

you guys think a hacksaw or dremel is sufficient?

Made the rough but with a sawzall, smoothed with a dremel, filled with JB Weld, sanded smooth and painted.

I used a grinder with a cut off wheel and just pushed it so it got a perfect cut
