    I have a 2019 Runner with a 3 inch suspension lift with 265/70/18’s and it rubs in reverse. Rubs the front bumper. Would spacers help?

    You are on a 32.6” diameter tire. It is likely rubbing on the cab mount. You can either add some caster to the alignment and see if that helps or do the cab mount chop.

    none so far
    If it rubs on the front bumper, you need to do a front liner mod (Google it and there are several videos on this). Spacers will not fix it as the turn radius increases and it will rub when you turn.

    What's your offset?


    And if it's rubbing on the front bumper, neither the fender liner mod or a body mount chop will solve that.

    I'm on 285s with -10 offset and rubbed the front bumper on the bottom. Unless you actually trim the bumper itself where it's rubbing you will continue to rub. Once you trim that area you might start rubbing on the fender liner as well, and then need the fender liner mod.

    I have the front bumper trimmed, fender liner mod, and the cab/body mount chop. Now no matter what I do there's no rubbing.

    Before the trimming and chopping... I rubbed front bumper forward or reverse, on any sharp turn.



    After bumper trimmed no more rubbing, went ahead and did the fender liner mod and body mount chop just to be safe..




    Don't need to trim very much, and a sharp razor knife is all that's really needed. You can use a Dremel... But a sharp razor works.

    Just chop the bottom corner of the front bumper and good to go.
