    Thanks for the comments guys. It was like getting a new truck. You really notice people looking at the truck. I got the dremmel tool and trimmed a little plastic this weekend. I was only getting a little rubbing when backing down my steep driveway then cranking the wheel all the way. As far as the ride, you notice the difference in the aggressive wheels/tires versus the factory set up. Going 70 mph down the highway it tracks straight and true. You get a little more steering wheel feel on rough roads. I didn't think 3" was a lot until you see it with the 285s. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I have the BFG Mudders on my Jeep and I love them so the AT's should be even better. Madguy

    Almost fell out of the truck several times getting used to the 3" lift. I have the nerfs but never really used them before.

    I'll have to go pull the paperwork, especially since the TSB for adding the new springs changed the factory specs.
