    Uhhh, do you have wheel spacers? I heard you could not run 33" tires on stock rims on a 3" lift without wheel spacers?:confused:

    I think you are referring to what is called "The pinch weld mod". It costs nothing to do.

    I don't know if this applicable to 2nd Gen's. If it isn't the WW's suggestion will fit the bill.

    The part you're referring to is just wheel well plastic. Cut it off.

    I'm totally confused here. mods under your SN say 6" lift a 3" bodylift but the OP says 3" lift. which is it you have and exactly where is it rubbing?
