Lifts

Ive had my truck for a week now and I'm in love, However when I bought it, it can with 35in BFG AT's and I'm getting a little bit of rubbing when I make turns. I'm wondering if anyone knows where I can find something like a 2in body lift so I can clear those without rubbing. Thank alot.

Dont do a body lift, diesels arent good with body lifts because of all the plumbing. Youll end up stretching out too much. You go with a 2 1/2" Leveling kit, they cost anywhere from $50(ebay shackles) to $400(Donahoe Racing) and anywhere in between. Alot of guys us Tough Country kits. Check out our Vendors, they will hook you up good.

Ok I called the last owner of the truck, he works at the dealership I got it from. It already has a the 2.5 inch leveling kit. Im barely rubbing the corner of my tires. But they are starting to get worn out and so is inside the well. Its only when I make sharp right turns. Anyone have anyidea why that is or how to fix it with out having to get a 3inch lift or new wheels.

It's rubbing bad enough to wear the tire??
I've seen a lot of them rubb a little in the rear on the plastic inner fender and the front on the airdam/valance. Where exactly is yours rubbing?

Its rubbing on the outer front left part. The plastic piece that goes over the bumber. I dont want to trim that because im afraid the metal might end up doing more damage. The tires arent really wearing down to bad, they are just geting a little nicked on the outer edges

Trim the area where its rubbing, lots of guys have to do that anyway to run 35's on 2 1/2" lift some even on 4" lifts.

With my Leatherman. It was rubbing on the bottom fascia, and only at 3/4 of a turn so i just trimmed out a corner and she is fine, now if i only knew where that other rubbing spot came from. Maybe il post some pictures so you guys know what im talking about.
