Sorry if my advice wasn't more helpful but unfortunely there's only so many corners you can cut. It sounds like the dealer got you into something you didn't research as well as you should have. It sounds like you got awe shocked into a truck package you didn't really want.

All I want to change is the All Terrains to the Mud Terrain. I was reading about 285s but the last thing I want to do is cause a rubbing or wearing issue. I really don't want to change the way the truck rides or add any spacers. The All Terrains from past experience grab gravels and I will here them throwing up into the wheel house for miles. Suggestions on a good size for the BFG Mud Terrain?

I don't know what the dealer is telling you but no lift kit components void your warranty unless there's a direct relation to something breaking. For example if you have a 3" or 6" with 285s or 35s and your headlights aren't working they will still be covered. But if you bend a tie rod or something they might be able to blame it on the lift. The law protects vehicle owners. The Magnusson-Moss act makes it illegal for an auto manufacturer or auto dealer to void a warranty just because a vehicle has been modified. The only way that a vehicle warranty can be effected is if the lift or leveling kit is the direct cause of a failure.

^^a lot of good info on lifts and your warranty

I have a baja and already did the cab mount chop, and have my angle grinder & dremel ready once I burn my money on some new tires. You will rub fenders even under normal conditions.


I just had the truck out in moab and really pushed the truck. Quite a few people on here were impressed. It is not just 5100's. I slapped a plate steal bumper, winch, full skids and sliders on it and she still handled everything I threw at it....Now I want more. I have 700# Eibach springs ordered and I am about to order UCA, but not shocks. The stock baja shocks have room for even more travel only swapping UCAs. I am not sure about the rear, but lets be honest that is the cheap end.

You would no doubt rub with 285's without doing any mods. Get 265/75
That's approx. 1" taller than what your running now with the same width

Good thing I double checked. Do not put a leveling spacer on top of this suspension. There are no good ways to lift the truck enough to get 33s on it yet without major issues. I am still going with the BFG Mud Terrains, just educated myself and am getting 265/75R16 instead. Thanks Everybody.

Cab mount chop is when literally the cab mount gets chopped to help clear bigger tires. I will also have to trim the fenders, but I am going to wait until I have the 285's on so I can see how much I actually need to trim.
