Yea I noticed that. Front bumper is coming off next week (31's rub during lock on fender even with 1.25" spaces) so will trim inner wheel well. Then cut and pound in that stupid lip on the passenger side...seriously, wtf is with that? So annoying.

Got hockey pucks for the front, 1 for each side for now, with the UC package idk if they put on longer front bump stops or not? So figure I'll test it out and if I need to go to 2 pucks I will.

Do u have up country? I ask cause I tried putting same size on mine stock and it wouldn't fit. The bumper was stuck in tread before I even bolted Em up so I had to cut off like 2 3 inches

other adjustments? never happened without pics

not to mention with 0 suspension mods and that big of tires, you have 0 flex. so "trail riding" is impossible. wouldn't make it very far.

I had to put2.25 spacers in front in a hurry cause I had to take a chance on buying them without knowing if they fit but once I did there was all kinds of room especially after I trimmed the bumper

Im sorry, i was mistaken. I do have aftermarket shocks(original owner put them in) and they are ProComp ES3000s. That is the only mod to the suspension but it did give an inch of lift i didnt know i had. From center of wheel to bottom of fender measures 19 inches. I do not have the UC package because my springs are not coded for it. Front driver spring is coded FM which means it did not get the UC package.

Pics are terrible quality cuz my tablets camera sucks plus i had to use photobucket because file size was too big.

This is the most flex i could do at the time because im not near any hills or trails. The front wheel pic looks closer to the well that it really is because of pic angle. It looks like its less than 1/4 inch but its actually more like 3/4 inch. Remember, this is with non up country package, but there are pro comp es3000 shocks on the truck that give it that 1" lift.

This pic was taken on level ground.


Ill take better pics if you want.
