Trimming a 8.25?

Just looking for some advice on how much I can trim off the bottom of an 8.25? I know its no 60, but thats next summer's project. I just put a bluetorch diff cover on and there is a huge amount of casting below the cover, I know people have trimmed them before, just wonder how much I can.

Oh by the way, nice product Dan , though I had to drill out two of the holes, they just didn't line-up, nothing a larger drill and a couple of washers could take-care of .

I wouldn't waste time doing anything but a clean up grind job with the cover on, especially if your future plans are an upgrade.

Take the cover off

Then look how thick the casting is so you know where the limits are.
