Chopping quarters on a 55

Has anyone ever done this? I would like to trim my rear quarters a bit so that I can make a new rear bumper that is connected to some rear sliders, but I want to be able to have the sliders come straight off the bumper rather than have to drop down under the quarter. Does this make any sense? Pictures would obviously be best so let's see them if you have them. Thanks in advacne for any help.

Luke at 4x4 Labs did the work. I got to do some of the plasma cutting. Cool!

That looks sweet, thanks. Now I just need to decide how much I want to cut.
