I have that exact same setup with NO tire rubbing issues. Where exactly are you rubbing at?

sent from my jeep.

when is it rubbing and where? If it's rubbing at full steering lock, you might need to adjust your steering bump stops? (just unscrew them a bit, and/or put a washer in there)

If you have stock track bars, as I understand it with 4" of lift they are probably pulling your axles to one side a good bit, causing one tire to be closer to the frame than the other. (I'm having this problem with 3" of lift) So you'll be more likely to rub on the side that's pulled inward. Time for adjustable track bars :sigh: more money. lol

oh, I was unaware that this was a leafspring jeep. Forget my trackbar comment then. Do leafspring jeeps even have trackbars?

How about you fill in your jeeps profile? that would help people out alot when trying to figure out problems, if they know what your jeep is and what's on it.

If it's rubbing the leafspring, then I'm guessing you need to decrease the amount that the wheels turn, or put spacers on the wheels to push them farther out? I don't know, just a guess.

Try adjusting the stops like Daniel mentioned? Spacers for $20.00 sounds like smoking deal, I think I'd grab them either way.

Easier time then me, yeah right, you mean a easier time then you. At least Justin and I didn't have to pull our floor board plugs after each obstacle to drain the puddles out of our jeeps like you did.
