    i would cut the finders but its rubbing on the inside wells and they have been shaved as much as possible without losing the warranty... ive looked at coil spacers and leveling kits but im not sure if that is really what is needed

    You already have a coil spacer/leveling kit if you have the rough country. So that won't help.

    You have a warranty on your fender wells :confused:

    And a 285/75/17 is a 34" tire, so I doubt you'll get any releif from rubbing without a ton of cutting and an aftermarket front bumper.

    So I'm interested to see how you came to the conclusion that cutting a bunch of your fender well would void your warranty, but that only cutting some of it would not. And how you decided where the dividing line between the two was.

    Get smaller tires. I wouldnt wanna cut into a brand new truck either. 285/70/17 is a good size.
