    I’m sure the info is out there, but I’ve been searching and can’t find exactly what I’m looking for. I’m looking for anyone running a 3 inch lift with 285/70r 17 tires and 17x9 wheels with -12 offset and aftermarket UCAs. I’m on the fence of weather I should get a 2.5 inch lift and 275 tires or 3 inch and 285s. I’m trying not to do any cutting, pushing the fender liners forward at most. So if anyone can chime in, I’d appreciate it. Tia

    I have most of those things.

    2.25" lift.
    Stock UCAs
    285/70/17 K02s
    17x9 w/ -12mm offset

    Rubbed, not too bad, but required a little work and mudflap removal.

    The lift won't help with the rubbing, the -12mm offset and 285mm tire width will rub. If you lift higher, it just won't rub until you uptravel on a big bump while turning the wheel is hit harder.

    Lifts won't prevent rub, they mask it. If you never cycle the suspension enough to find where it rubs you'll be fine. But eventually with that setup, you'll rub.

    Thank you for your reply! What was the little bit of work you had to do? Was the cmc necessary?

    Just a little trimming on the front bumper and heating up pushing in the plastic. Like 2" of trim on the bottom, you can't see it unless you go hunting. Also, remove front mud flaps. That was pretty much it. Backs are fine.

    2.5" lift, light racing UCA, 285/70/17 KO2s, 17x9 wheels with same offset. I removed the mudflaps, no rubbing on the cab mount, and no trimming required. Only clips the front bumper plastic when in full lock reverse turning right.

    That’s not too bad, I think I’m going to go ahead with the 285s

    I'll try to make a video of it later tonight if I get a chance to upload so you can see. If you're not scared to saw on the truck you'll be fine :)

    That’s awesome! Thank you for making that! I’m going ahead with the 285s now. That was a lot of help!

    i agree with Tonycaputo; i just removed my front mud flaps and did minimal trimming on the bumper cause it does rub when reversing at full lock.

    I know you are running a different tire size but I’m trying to figure out how much trimming I’ll have to do with the -12 on a 265 or 275/70r17 on stock suspension. This is temporary until we get suspension and lift it a tad.

    You likely will need to remove mudflaps (maybe not, but likely yes), and you'll have some on the bottom. You'll certainly have to push in the fender liner some, but that's pretty easy with a heat gun. The real test is cycle the suspension out completely and note where it touches. I'd recommend full stuff while the wheel is all the way left and then right, then do that for the other front wheels. The rears will require nothing.
