My lift is on.

I finally got my 4.5 inxh lift on. It really does ride nice. The front bumper is really in the way on these new trucks. My 37s hit the bumper pretty hard and my 325/60r20s still rub the driver side bumper brace. Here is one pic I took the way it is now but the 37s will go on in the spring.

Looks great man. It's about time
You get it lifted haha. How wide are those SOTAs? That could be your problem with the rubbin issues.

Yeah the bracket on the front bumper is right in the way for tire clearance. But your truck would look good on 7 inch also. 👍

we had the same issue on my brothers truck with the rubbing, it was hitting the buper brackets left and right, we ended up cutting the left and right bracket off, and trimming the inner wheel well, bumper still rock solid, and there was no rubbing...i think his wheels had a -12 offset....

completley stock truck...just a simple cat back system....and maybe a few other odds and ends

Re: My lift is on.

Its gotta be the offset and width on the wheels contributing to the rubbing. Im on a 20x9 with 0 offset and even if i dropped to a 4.5" lift id have tons of room

Re: My lift is on.

How far were the 37's sticking out and do you think they would clear with a 6" lift or do you need the icon 7"?
