    So I ordered my Billy 1500 set front and rear with Light racing UCA's and 1.5" AAL's. I run 265/70/17's. Im gonna go with a 1.75" lift, now I would like to run 285/70/17 but with a 1.75" lift and probably some trimming would I be able to get them to work without rubbing?

    TRD Supercharger, Toytec 3" Ultimate Lift w/ 285/75/16s and planning on OBA for sometime in the future. Also thinking about the HWMS and a Warn 8000 for it.
    I just put on 285 75 16 on my truck today. I installed the Toytec 2.5" lift (coilover and AAL) in mid December. I think the lift and tires look awesome, but pulling out of parking spots, or into my driveway, or turning anywhere sharp... not so awesome.
    I drove for a little while today without the 1.25 spidertrax spacers, but the tires rubbed the UCA when I turned (I couldn't even fit my small finger between the tire and UCA in the straight position).
    I installed the 1.25 spacers and now the rubbing is on the mudflaps. It makes a lot of noise.
    Many people on this forum told me I'd need to get the spacers and trim the flaps, but I held out hope that I would be different, because I've seen some peoples' posts about how they had this same setup and didn't have to do anything special.
    I wasn't different.
    I haven't done any trimming yet, since its dark out, but maybe tomorrow afternoon I'll look into it. I've been told I would need to chop the cab mount, which involves grinding off some structural steel and welding on a cover. I'm still hoping that I can avoid that with some mudflap trimming.

    Yeah...That would be amazing if it worked with "some trimming." You'll have a fair bit of work to get those cleaned up I would think.

    They would even rub at 2.5" without some trimming and wheel spacers.
