    I bought my truck new. At 6000 miles I put some 265/75/16 BFG AT's on it. It did fine, no rubbing at all. Well now it has 67000 miles on it, and i put the exact same tire and size back on it. Now I have a slight rubbing issue when i turn it all the in to the right. Nothing major, but I was thinking maybe the front suspension has settled a little. What do you guys think? Great site by the way. Been watching from the sideline for a while. Just decided I would get in the game.:D

    Welcome to TW! Sounds like the springs may have sagged a little. I wouldnt worry about it.

    The whole point of my comment was that is the standard comment I tell my wife why I had to buy a new truck. I found a problem with the old one so to save money, I just bought a new one.

    It seems to work with her.
