    The 285 won't fit unless you lift it. There will be some trimming and you won't have to remove the mud flaps. I believe that for 285's to fit you need at least 2.5 - 3" of lift in the front for the 285 to fit.

    You will need to wait for you lift. I had to remove my front mud flaps, trim some of the fender flares, and do the cab mount chop. In the rear I need to trim some of the fender flares where its rubbing the lugs fully stuffed. With the cab mount cut I dont rub under any "normal" uses as I did before it. Now I only rub in the front on the flares in a couple spots that are easily trimmed.
