35inch tires rubbing

Hello I just bought the truck in sig. It has a 4inch procomp lift and when I turn all the way to the left to go in a drive way or just to make a u-turn on flat ground the drivers side tire rubs on the inside fender. Is this normal? What can i do to fix it?

if it's just the plastic fender well, you can just zip tie it back a bit further. It might need a little cut to give you more flex.

get a heat gun, and set of leather gloves. Heat the fender liner up and push it back where you want it. Have buddy ready with a garden hose, and spray it down when you have it pushed where you want it to hold its position. There is a good 3-4 inches of space back there and looks alot better than hacking up the fender liner

Me too after I wore through my fender liners on my 00, so I flipped it and moved up to a 06

that is good to know thank you. So it sounds like it is normal. I thought there would be plenty of clearence but there isn't. Is it normal for the rear to be a little higher than the front?

The best thing to stop rubbing on inner fender would be to drill a small hole in bottom of inner fender, then get a large zip-tie, go through the hole you drilled then around the spring hanger. Pull it tight, and you should be good to go! I did this to my 04' f-250 fx-4, (with no lift), and I run 315x75x16 mud terrains with no scrub at all. Hope this helps.

you saying the back end of truck to sit higher than the front end? Yes they are all like that from factory, its the extra springs from the factory for load capacity. "Search leveling kit" on forum there are way to correct it if you want it level, but when you put something in the bed the back is going to sit low, or as a Miami guy called it "Bull Dogging"

Yeah this would work also, or zip tie it back and heat it up to make it reshape itself so you dont have zip ties hanging from the truck. Point is, dont cut the fender liners unless you have to
