    Trying for the life of me to figure this one out. I've run a few different setups, and a buddy of mine is looking at running this one. He was told by a local shop that he could run a 3" lift, 16x8 with a 0 offset and 285/75/16s without issues. The guy said there would be minor modifications required to the plastic, but that's it. Really curious if any of you guys are running this setup and what all was required to do so. I've run setups with less wheel outside of the fender walls and had rubbing, but maybe I just didn't trim enough? At any rate, I just really want to confirm that he's not going to have to chop cab mounts to run this setup.

    I'd love to hear from your experiences if you've run this on your rig. Pics just to show it off are perfectly welcome :)

    The answers I find here will determine whether I change my setup or not. Hope someone has some insight for me.

    It all depends on if you/ He wheels the truck 285's will rub no matter how much you trim. For street driving plastic can be trimmed and have no rubbing issues. you might need UCA's to push your castor forward to stay clear from the cab mount. But the first time you take it off road you will see 285's rub no matter how they are set up.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm running camburg UCAs and he'll be running Light Racing UCAs.

    My main concern is will it hit that cab mount. That's a whole other level of correcting rubbing.

    As I'm setup now the only rub I've seen is on the frame at the inside of the wheel at full lock under compression. Just enough rub to wear the coating off.

    Your really not going to know until you put the tires on. if you wheel the truck you will need to do the cab mount chop mod there is just no way around that. It's really easy to do if you can weld or know someone that can.

    Yes

    I know one day I will be doing something that will require some trimming, but so far no issues

    Yeah once you really stuff the tires you will find you need to trim mor then you thought.



    I can tell just from your pic you would rub off road I know not everyone wheels their truck but if you did you would rub. Im just trying to tell the OP his options for a street truck to mild fire roads you wont have to trim much. Start stuffing your tires and flexing out the rear and you will be rubbing all over.

    I went to an off road park here in Texas and was very surprised the I did not rub. We were taking level 3 trails. I bet the one day I make a sharp turn and hop a little curb it will rub. I did have to put 1.25 spacers though

    Trim plastic only or any metal Fab? That's even further out than either my buddy or I are considering.

    Yeah, I don't find much enjoyment in low-speed rock crawling and wheeling, nor do I jump my daily driver (very high). I guess it's all what you're after. I do like high speed dirt roads, but regardless of what you hit on that, you'd best not have your wheel turned very far while driving at speed or you have more to worry about than some rubbing :D

    I ordered the spacers and I'll see what modification would be needed to run them. If I determine it'll create enough problems to warrant frame modification, I'll ditch the spacers and stick with where I'm at.

    What size wheel and what offset? How much trimming?

    That's really what I'm trying to dial in on.
