Looking for some insight about lift heights. I am currently leveled running 285/75/16. My problem is when I am anywhere from half to full cranked in a turn and the front end starts to articulate; the tires rub severely on the back of the fender liner. The wheels are 16X8 MB Razors with a -6 offset, and I am not sure of the backspace (going to guess somewhere 2"-4"). Currently I do not plan on going to a larger tire, as the ones I'm running have only 7000 miles on them. I know if I go to a 4" lift I basically cannot go larger, and if I go with a 6" lift and can go to 35's. So my question is...Do you think the truck would look akward with a 6" lift and 285's. Lifts that I am contiplating are Cognito 4-6", RCD 6", and a Skyjacker 6". Also, should I go with the spacer block or go with new springs? Wishing I had lifted it in the first place. :drink

I had seen that earlier. Wish you had some shots from the sides to see the spacing between the tires and top of the wheel wells. I was just wondering what 285's would look like with a 6" lift.
