    3in coil spacer. 2inch wheel spacers. 32x11.50 pro comp mud terrains on 15x8 black pro comp wheels. linex, debadged,
    ok so i put the 3in leveling spacer up front and im running 32x11.50s up front on a 15x8 wheel.i also have 2in wheel spacers up front. when i crank the wheel all the way it rubs on the corner of the frame supporting the outer part of the body behind the tire. it does this more so on the drivers side? is this normal due to the setup im running? and yes i know you are all gonna wonder why the hell i have wheel spacers up front.its cus i bought the rims off a guy who had them on his 98 so i put the spacers on the front to clear the calipers and give it a wide prerunner look for when i put fiberglass fenders on. and have enough money for the total chaos kit.lol

    mine does it too, more so on the drivers side. Trimming the body mount and then boxing it back by welding on a plate to the open hole is one of the only solutions.

    Wow, you actually cut the frame? I'm not chancing that here in Hawaii, that will speed up the rusting process.

    It gives me shivers just thinking about it! A Tacoma, slowly rotting away. Like cancer, but without the charity walks.

    I have not done this yet, the pic is from another forum. There is no way in hell I would just leave a gaping hole in my body mount. However I will be doing this when my buddy graduates from welding school In about a year:D.
    The key is to weld the plate back in and paint it up real nice like you never cut it in the first place (pic 1).
