Just Curious

Ok I have been reading and seeing where people are running a 255/75R17 with a 2" RC lift. Just how much would it rub. I do not have the pinch weld mod done and want to stay away from it if possible. The specs on my wheels are in my signature. Any and all in put would be great.

You will most likely need to do the pinch weld mod. It's very easy. What's the reasoning on not wanting to do it?

Probably because it looks like a PITA... at least that's why I never wanted to do it LOL.

If you can change a flat tire you can do the pinch weld mod haha it's very easy!

I have the same wheels but with 265/70. I wouldn't run them without doing the pinch weld mod. Like 07jeepXK said its an easy mod just time consuming.

You don't have to take out the wheel well liners to replace the fog lights. There is an access door in the liner.

I am needing to replace the whole assy. I just figured it would give me more room by taking the liner out. plus one of my access is broke and I have it held on with mining tape.

I pulled both fog lights just by going underneath, without taking the liner OR access out. It isn't hard at all.

not to threadjack, but is there a step by step of the pinch weld mod anywhere? I did a search and only coming up with posts with it mentioned. I just ordered my RR lift and want to do the mod at the same time. thanks
