thank you all and the wifey is finding all kinds of reason to go driving now. She is not liking the rubbing so now I'm going to have look into some wheel spacers, pretty excited myself.

Hey, cograts!! I just recently did my same lift kit (Rough country #664 2" Spacer). I just had my 265/70/17 tires installed yesterday...however I have an issue I can't really find anyone else having?? I had the alingment done because of new tires (I did not do it after the lift because I was planning on new tires and didn't want to pay twice). When I took it in for alignment they said they can't fix my front CAMBER that's out of line without me spending $530 on parts/labor to install Adjustable Ball Joints.

I called Rough Country asking why I wasn't informed with all my research and prior discussion with them of this and they said there should be no Camber adjustment needed and should definitely be no adjustable ball joint needed...so can anyone shed some light on this for me? Or what may actually be causing my camber to be out that I can fix and just have it realligned?

I had mine lifted, amongst other things, and let the shop align the wheels after the lift( lots of lead for balancing)... drove 1600 Km home with no problems. Suggest you take it to a rough country agent or approved outlet if possible.

Oh i already know they're the maniac bumpers. There just aren't many good pictures of them.

Would love for you to start a thread and post up as many pictures, close up shots too, as you can. I'm hoping someone in the US can mimic that front bumper design for us
