    Your gonna have to trim the front black piece, I think its the splash guard, and the back part of the fender with a 3" lift. Everyone has to trim. I trimmed a lot and still have to trim more. lol. Good luck.

    I did the same thing 285/70/17 rubbed bad, also rode like a log waqgon. I went to a 265/70/17 much better and still looks good with 3 inch lift

    I guess it really depends on which "3 inch lift" you got. I went with the Ultimate kit from toytec and barely rubbed with them at the stock setting. Others that just buy spacers seem to rub pretty bad.

    We can't really tell you what to trim. You gotta get out and look at the truck at full lock left and right, fully stuff tires, and any other positions that you hear rubbing in, figure out what is touching and how far it needs to be trimmed back...

    There is no one single answer or trimming "pattern" to follow to fix it...

    You need to trim no matter what, but your 75 tire profile is a little to big for a 3"lift and if you are running a negative offset it's even worse, you might rub on metal in the rear of the fenderwell. You could:
    -get smaller tires
    -if you have negative offset wheels get ones that are max. 0 offset (positive might be needed)
    -get a slight body lift.

    Your 285/75/17's are actually 34's, not 33's. Thats why you're having the issues most likely. I'd recommend 275/70/17's for little to no rub with the 3" lift, 285/70/17s with a little bit of trimming.
