Trail master lift

Think I am going to go with this 4" lift. My question is I have stock rims on my truck. They rub the frame on full turn only slightly. Also I plan on going up to 33/10.5/15 tires with the same rims if possible. So raising my frame 4" is this enough to compansate for the current rubbing and the bigger tires aprox 1.5" total. Or do I need to get some rims with less offset? I like my stock rims and can't see dishing out for new if not needed. Thanks for any help.

Re: Trail master lift

Hi Ryan,
If you lift the truck and keep the same rims it will probably still rub the frame. Using a rim with less backspacing will cure this problem but it will put the tire closer to the fender. Depending on what offset you use will determine if it rubs or not [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]. Check with this guy [email protected] and ask him what offset he's running. I know that his truck does great. He has a 3" body lift and a 5" trailmaster suspension, and 33"swampers
