    i have an 08 with a 3 inch RevTek block lift and 33" BFG's. I trimmed up the wheel well as best as i could leaving about an inch of clearence in any direction the tire turns, but i still get that godawefull grinding noise when i go in reverse down steep inclines (my rediculously steep driveway). Any suggestions??

    trim a little extra up the wheel well.... remeber when you get it you add a little weight (i add a lot :( ) but that will lower your wheel well and cause it hit your tread....

    Sorry to stir up an old tread, but what exactly are we talking about when refering to trimming. I've been communicating with jhodge83, and it seems he and all give the same advice as to start trimming. Just wondering if those with experience can give a couple tips.

    I think I over did it on tire size with only a 2.25" Ready lift. Most of you got 3" Rev Tech. I will switch if trimming dont work, but first need to know where to start.

    Thanks in advance for all the help...

    in the photo, where the trimming arrow is, is tword the front of the truck.

    one of the easiest ways to see where you need to trim is get someone else in the drivers seat and have them turn the wheel while you watch. this will give you an idea, but trim some extra, cuz when the tires are rolling the truck will roll a little more or less, and the more people in the truck and stuff in the bed, the lower it will sit......

    hope this helps!!!
