Could it just be that they messed up the backspacing?

The jeep probably needs a adj trackbar. I have a 2" lift and my axle is about a half inch pushed over on the driver side. At least with a adj trackbar both tires will probably rub

Love is like a fart if you push to hard it's probably shee-it!

Alright they got it back from the shop an said it was the tie rod and they had it replaced and a wheel alignment, so I'm thinking good it should be good to go. I started the test drive and sure enough I turned it full lock right and it rubbed just like before. Still no rub on left. They tried to make it sound like it was normal for a jeep with oversize tires. Still, it is 255/75/r17 on 2 inch lift. It should work, right? I left with no jeep. I feel sad.

What do they say was wrong with the tie rod? It was bent?

The answer is what we told you already. Axle is slightly off center from the lift. They either need to drill a new hole and move the stock track bar, install an adjustable trackbar or put a washer or two under the steering stops.

With only a 2" lift it shouldn't be that far off. Mine has never rubbed, even with 33x10.50's on just a bb

Drilling a new hole = free
Washers on steering stops = maybe $1
Adjustable trackbar = $300 area

So use the tire rub problem as a negotiation. **** its a rubi. If it drives straight and doesn't chew up tires rock it, you have plenty of time to figure it out later. Upgrade a little at a time amd eventually it will be fixed
