You going to have to do more then trim. you will have to chop the cab mount or you will rub at full lock.

Get new UCA's with that set-up. I'm running 285/70/17 (33/11.5) and I had to trim just about everything......Cab mounts, pinch weld, fenders and inner liners. That's with 3* caster and that would not be attainable w/o aftermarket UCA's. I also took off my sway bar and feel that's what caused a lot of rubbing with the extra uptravel.

An aggressive 265 would be fine for most wheeling I'd imagine.

OP did you get the grapplers or what? I want to get the Grapplers and new wheels so bad, I may end up not waiting till my current tires wear out, which would be a good year and a half from now.

This jeep is running 33x12.5x17 Grapplers on 9"wide Mickey Thompson classic lock wheels (polished).

Same wheels and tires I want but I'm trying to decide on getting that same size or 16x8 wheels with 305/70/16 Grapplers. I'm leaning more towards the 16" wheels, as I prefer more sidewall.

The white Tacoma has 35" tires and 3" of lift.

I hear you. I have OME 886 springs and the dakar leafs and have 285/75/16's and I am glad I went with bigger 285's over the 265/75's. I have aftermarket wheels with 4.5in bs. Do you have any pics?

Your not rubbing because that tire size is not 33/11.5 it is actually 32.75x11.5x17

Thats cause most of the guys complaining about rubbing think they have a 3inch lift but in reality they only have a 2.5 or a 2.75 inches of lift. Been there done that. Im running a True 33x12.50x17 not a metric size a true inces size, and i had to cut and chop to make them work

From what I have gathered about Mud grappler sizes, I would stand a good chance of rubbing the body mount a smidge. Will find out someday.
