Ya , but not for every system.

Hey froggo, did you have to trim a lot to get the 265/75's to fit? I'm running 265/70 AT's and it's REALLY close in the rear and still rubs a tad up front when I flex it pretty hard. I'm stepping to a 4" and want to run the 75's but I worried I'll be rubbing like mad

I trimed about an inch and a half off the bottom of the bumper and i can fully flex.

Just on the front? Did it rub on the rocker panel cladding? Did the rear tire rub at all? Also, your soft 8's are 4" BS right?

No more rubbing on the front after trim and no rubbing in back at all. 4" BS, yes sir.

Just curious as to your MX6 adjuster knobs, how easy it to reach the adjuster on your rear shocks? I see skinny end down on the fronts putting the knob at the bottom and skinny side up on your rears putting adjuster knob on the top. On mine I put the adjuster down on the rears.
