    I've got a 3" tough country lift already, it's just that i got new rims recently and prior to them I had 2" wheel spacers with the stock rims. So today I decided I'd try and run the wheel spacers with the new rims, but with the offset on the rim plus the wheel spacer the tire ended up rubbing. so what I was hoping was to just lift it up a little so the bottom of the wheel well would clear the middle of the tire. Now i've resorted to eliminating the wheel spacers.
