      here was mine
      a square notch makes no sense..and from an integrity stand point not as nearly strong as an arch..more stress points

      yes it was welded with another piece of metal to cloes up the cut..they sprayed with a truck bed liner to prevent rusting

      I don't think the DMV will tell you where to get your frame notched.

      I assume notching your frame kills any warranty right? idk, thats the only thing stopping me.

      technically it won't void a warranty unless they can prove that caused whateve failed that your getting warrantied. If your window regulator goes bad they can't blame it.
      My dealer didn't notice I was notched at first but didn't care.

      I don't care what the dealership thinks either way...my car is at 64k on the clock.

      Dumb question, but at what point to you need to do this? (I'm assuming it's only needed if you go REALLY low).
