    not sure about 1st gens but you might have rubbing on the upper control arms on factory rims. consider some wheel spacers. im sure someone will chime in.

    you may rub on the frame at full lock. you should also do the pinch weld mod to be safe to. consider either wheel spacers or wheels with a 4'' backspace

    side tube step bars, and a trd skid plate. Hood protector, and wade in-channel guards. K&N CAI, Dynomax catback exhaust. Weathertech floormats, and door scuff guards. White stubbie antenna.
    I had a procomp set(tires/rims) 16x8 and 285/75/r16........I had rubbing when turned all the way in either direction, and any kind of force was put on the tire. Tree stump, curb, or heavy braking while turning sharp.other than that, I loved it, and I spent more time dirty than clean.
