I'm running 35-14.50s. I'm running yota axles, rear springs up front. From axle to axle, I think I'm at 86",which I believe is stock. I do have some shackles on there, but not sure what kind they are. Probably some more technical stuff in there that might make a difference, but I'm not "In the know" on the technical stuff.

To answer your questions, I can tell you this. My front right tire rubs the spring when I'm at hard left turn. Even on flat ground. My front fenders have been taken completely off, so I don't experience any rubbing there. I didn't do any cutting on the rear fenders, but they could use a shaving. When I'm flexed out, my rear tires will rub.

I'm not an "extreme wheeler", so the few small things I do, I still notice some rubbing going on.

Now, here come the suggestions from the crowd. I know some shaving should take care of my rear, but I'm not sure what's going on up front. I've accepted it and just don't turn my steering wheel hard left.

That's a pretty good question that I don't think I have the answer to. That'll give me something to do when I get home!

I sell custom spacers... up to 2 inch if you think you may need some. They are fairly cheap.

I have 13" suspension lift with 38/15.5R15 swamper tsl. I would like to get more clearance but I want to stay street legal.

I'm running 36's, but have no front clip, and dove tailed the rear. It rubs some out back, but if I done some more body trimming I could prolly fix that.
My suspension set up is RUF,CJ's out back. YJ's might even give me enough room to work with no body mods, but I like my current set up just fine.
