    Ok, I have a '11 Taco with a 3" Lift. I am running 285/65/18 BFG All Terrain T/A KO tires. I was having a pretty bad issue with rubbing on the wheel well liners but I trimmed the excess plastic off and got that taken care of. However. When I am turned all the way left or right AND take a bump my tires rub on the cab mount. Will adding wheel spacers solve this problem? What about going to a narrower tire?

    Thanks.

    wheel spacers helped me out with the same issue. Although a thinner tire will also help.

    Search for BAMF's cab mount chop pre-fabbed plates. He's one of the site vendors.

    Yeah... I am not an idiot but I am not Mr. Mechanic guy either. With my luck I would F- the CMC all up and then be, well, F-ed.
