    How big are your tires? This gets me a little worried. I just got my arms in and run 265/75/16. Planning on only a minimal 1-1.5" lift. I'd hate to have this same issue.

    I am running same size tires currently with no lift. You might clear no issue with that lift. I also have SCS Stealths with only 3.5 back spacing which can cause additional rub due to the tire sitting further outside wheel well.

    Nothing to get excited about
    You should be ok with that size. Lift doesn't do much to stop rubbing. It's your tire size and rim offset that make a difference. The wheel still has to move around in that fender space when the suspension is going up and down. Lift doesn't change that fact. If the tire rubs the fender/pinch weld at stock ride height while you're turning, a lift might alleviate the rubbing for street driving. But as soon as you stuff the tire, it will rub.

    That's why everyone trims fenders, hammers pinch welds, and/or chops the cab mount. It's the price we pay for bigger and wider tires. For 1st gens, the optimal tire seems to be 255/85-16 (33x10). Not sure about 2nd or 3rd. Maybe a 285/75-17 (33.8x11.2)?

    I run 265/75-R16 in an AT tyre on OEM wheels without rubbing, and no clearance trimming. Any bigger, and there would be problems. I use universal/flat mudflaps, which may offer a tiny bit more clearance.

    So I can’t run the JBA UCAs with stock OR wheels and 255/85R16s?

    All I'm going to say about the JBA UCA's is who knows if they will rub or not, there is no clear answer on this and I asked a similar question a few pages back with no response. This is the only thing keeping me from buying these UCA's at this point because I have no patience to play the try it and see if it fits game. If someone can provide us with some answers or a link to the info we desire that would be great.

    Heres the deal for guys who do not know. I am not marlin. Im Joe aka Panda see exibit a

    I run this thread to keep all the information for these (problems alignment ect ect) In one place for the community. Thats it. I do not work for him. I do not get paid by him (my truck is one of his main toyota guinea pigs/ tester) I also work a full time job and have a family. If you have a question and ask it on here most of the time myself or someone will answer your question.

    A lot of the questions have been answered in this thread as well. If you have a urgent question or something specific ( shipping, in stock things like that) then call or email JBA directly. Their seems to be a lot of confusion with some newer people who have found the thread so i just wanted to clear that up again. Marlin is not on this site or in this thread so if you guys need to get ahold of him just call or email them. I do this strictly to keep info sort of coherent for people. But as I said i do work full time as well so if you have a question that gets missed or need a answer now then call or email him please. This is just a bs thread dedicated to his products

    you might be ok their as they are a thinner tire. the concern with backspacing is guys who actually rub the uca itself with wider tires and not enough backspace. that tire is actually thinner then the factory tires if i remmeber right @EatSleepTacos ran them for awhile But every truck is slightly different their is no 100% awner for that tire size. Some guys rub and some guys dont. Also depends on what brand and how aggressive the sidewall is

    If you are running a bfg with minimal sidewall tread and someone else is running a nitto mud grap with massive sidewall lugs it makes a difference. That is why their is no 100% sure that will work awnser. Same thing as anything else. Some guys get away with running 285's and no cab mount chop. some guys need it. Every set up is slightly different. But almost all sizes and brands have been discussed in this thread. If you use the search function on the top corner while in the thread. type in your questions and click the box that says search this thread only it will help you get a awnser faster most of the time then i will get to it :cheers:
