    I have a 3" spacer lift on front and 1.5" blocks in rear. Riding on 305 70 16 tires. My only problem is the body mount bracket , any suggestions on what i can do to correct.Used tires so i am thinking dropping a size would help,but it just looks so nice i would love to keep them.[​IMG]

    you know now that i actually looked at your pic you may have too little backspacing and the spacers would only make it worse

    wat?
    you can have the body mount chopped and re-welded. many on here have done it. i need to do it to mine to keep the 285's off it

    i bought the tires and rims used> i know they are 16 by 10 or 10.5. How can i measure the backspacing? I only paid 350 for the whole set. they were ALready mounted. I like the look, any way to correct, how about cutting and boxing the body mount a bit?
