I started with a cutoff wheel and saw that it was going to be a long day. Went to a plasma cutter and got it done quickly.

What is this for? To lower the truck more and have that notch out for the rear to clear? Or something else.

You got it. The max you can lower the rear is 4.5 inches and have any suspension travel. This is actually pretty good ride with Timbren springs Home - Timbren Industries Inc. Suspension Products I still have my timbren springs mounted as shown in the picture but added three inches of additional suspension movement. The truck should now squat for better launch.
