FYI: I rub a lot only running 31X10.50s when I really flex out my 4.5" Rusty's kit offroad. I am constantly fighting to keep my stock fender flares on.

I'm rubbing pretty badly on the rear of the front passenger's side tire, so I will be trimming shortly.
Thats a nice before and after.

Thank you I will be posting up another updated one here in the next week or two. It depends how lazy I am. I'm knocking out some other projects and cleaning today, so I have time to get to the HEEP on my days off - Wednesday-Thursday.

Very nice! Did your 98 come stock with that full length roof rack? I thought all the 97+ had those half length racks. I like the look of the full length way better. You should buy that 20" extension for your basket.
