Staley86, check out Six0~Stroker's front bumper, specifically the gold trim on the wheel opening to bumper trailing edge alignment. Somewhere along the line that bumper has been pushed forward. I did the same to my 03 and it made A LOT of difference. It's very simple, two 1.5"~2" spacers (1.5 square tube installed across both bolt holes would work) drilled to the spacing of the floating anchor nuts that the existing bumper mounts secure to, four longer bolts, a friend to help remount/align the bumper. Because I have the spacers, bumper, and pre runner bar, we're going to tack the anchor nuts to the frame and weld the spacers to the bumper. It's a juggling act to put it all together!
The only down side is that those triangular brackets from the frame outboard supporting the outer bumper will no longer fit. Not that big of a deal.
Wheel size and offset are mucho importanto here. Skinny wheels can make the tires ride on the center tread above about 40 psi, shallow back spacing will push the wheels farther out.
I have a 6" lift and 35s on 16x10 Eagle Alloys, if I have them turned just right while compressing the suspension (pulling into a parking lot for example) I can rub my body. Bottomline, they're going to rub, you just have to figure out where/when you want them to.
