thats cause you have the wrong back spacing on your wheels. lift has nothing to do with tire rub on control arms. i see your running stock rims with 35's, thats your problem right there. pick up a set of steelies with 3.75-4 back spacing and you'll be good.

I have the stock wheels with spacers... I wouldhave to run some retardedbackspacing to not rub... It's easier to adjust the steering stops, I've just been to lazy to do it yet.

I should be at 4" backspacing rite now. In order to not rub I would have to run something like 3-2.5...

what width tire are you running? anything wider then 13.50 you would have to run retarded back spacing. i'm running 3.75 bs on 12.50's and didn't have any issues till i f-ed with my steering and thru the toe off.

Heres mine with 32" mud terrains.... You'd be very surprised about how many people Ive had come up to me and ask if they are 33's... I think the fact that it has such an aggressive tread makes them look even larger than they really are... Gonna add a 1" BL soon, and MAYBE add the front spacers because the jeep doesnt sit very level...

Where did you get those wheels in 15s? I love those, but on the Mickey Thompson website they only offer them in 17s and 18s. The flat black in killer looking. but I can t find them

15x8 MICKEY THOMPSON SIGNATURE SERIES BLACK JEEP WHEELS: eBay Motors (item 120554518323 end time Jun-07-10 16:01:07 PDT)

There ya go... What I did was email him and ended up calling him to do the transaction directly. Got him to knock off a few $$$$ because I saved him the ebay fees and paypal fees because I just gave him my CC # over the phone. I can say +rep for those guys, they were legit, and shipping was fast too! (and most of all the wheels are badass )
