i highly doubt 10.5 will rub in the rear unless you really articulate the rear suspension but if they do they will rub on the inner fenders and swaybar most likely up front

not with a BL
you would have to get one rear wheel off the ground to get a 33x10.5 to rub with a BL

Exactly
There is also "Summit Brand" cleanable air filters, they are made by K&N but are half the price, and the same thing.

yea i just did my BL and you really see how bad the frame looks
so im paintin mine soon
i plan to get under there and wash it with a brush to get all the dirt grease etc off
then im gonna sand it down smooth and hit it with two coats of spray can primer then do some spray can satin black so it looks oem
but make sure you mask really good cuz paint gets everywhere

I am looking for tires still and there was a couple sets I found today that would work. I dont know how nitto mud grapplers would look on stock rims but I found a good set.

Havent searched but could i run 315/75/16 on a bl. I think that is like 34 inches right.
