Both bitd and snore state the frame frail can be notched back 8 inches but the top frame rail remains

Actual rule
Frame rail exceptions: A. The front end of the frame rail may be notched a maximum of 8 inches from the end for ground clearance. Top of frame rail must remain stock.

Can i cut off the crumple zone or not?

I've seen them cut off and then replaced with an equal length piece of flat steel. This way the length of the frame is still the same, but the ugly crumple look is gone. That way you at least follow the spirit of the rules.
