    All kidding aside, do you have an end goal for the truck?

    What's an end goal? LOL. As of right now this is my daily driver so I'm trying to keep the truck somewhat driveable. I'm trying to balance capability and practicallity. After getting the larger tires, I'm definitely going to regear and throw on some sliders, after that I think my build is going to drastically slow down. There is a bunch of stuff I'd love to do like a bed rack with a RTT, mounted recovery gear, Steel front bumper, high clearance rear bumper, winch, etc. But with the amount of wheeling I do its not really a necessity. I'm very close to being extremely content with my truck.

    Beat back my pinch weld and trimmed and tucked the fender liner behind the pinch weld. No more rubbing!

    That picture is the completed picture. You can see the fender liner tucked behind the pinch weld. Or are you wanting to see how much space I have now between my tire and the back fender?
