285's and Bilsteins at 1.75"

I just got my 285/70 17 Nitto Terra Grapplers installed. I have the stock TRD sport wheels with Spidertrax spacers and Bilsteins all around. Front is set to 1.75" lift. I trimmed the fenders on the inside and also got my cab mounts cut and a plate welded. Right no I have no rubbing whatsoever. I think it looks good with the tires stuffed and am very happy I kept it at 1.75". Trimming was easy and I paid a shop 150 to do my cab mount chop, weld a plate in and spray some undercoat. So it can be done guys. 285 with 1.75" lift. I'm not sure why you guys are rubbing with 3" lifts. Here are some pics.

Thanks guys. I'm running TSB rear with 1.75" in the front. I got a little rubbing today at full lock when I was hopping a curb. There is no rubbing during normal driving though. If you plan to rock crawl I would do 2.5" in the front.

looks good, but why didn't you just set them at 2.5" to begin with and so you didn't have to pay the shop to do the cutting? just curious b/c I want the bilsteins soon.

Looks almost stock from a distance...2.5 or 3 inch lift looks better IMHO.
