    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    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.

    okay. i may run the coilers and stick with 265's just because i don't want to trim a whole lot for resale purposes.

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

    I must be the only person on this board running 305/70/16's with 3" of lift that does not hit the body mount, ever! and yes I do offroad but don't jump the truck or anything too nuts.

    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:D

    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.
