The wheels look like they are 10" wide and they stick out a lot. Some proper fitting wheels will solve the rubbing.

What exactly are the tires rubbing on? The truck looks really good how it is, I'd leave it if at all possible.

I've got the same combo, no issues in the back... but up front I had to just trim the valence to clear. 33's are too small for a double lifted truck!

yea that. Or 3" body lift and 35s. if its just rubbing when you wheel I wouldnt worry about it THAT much, unless you wheel it more than you drive it on the road.

Ford Bronco II, Ranger, Traction Bars, Long Link Traction Bars

There you go. Your rear axel is going to move a little back and forth because of axel wrap when you are really flexed out. Traction bars will keep your axel centered where it is suposed to be.

For the front, why not just slightly trim it? Go flex it out, then just mark where you need to trim. If you do it right, no one will notice. Also have you cranked your torion bars at all? You might want to do that to bring your front end up a little

Yeah Jeff I think that what's my problem is I have really bad axle wrap...main ply are even bend....

and Carl that is one of my concern the higher is not always the better

I started building a trac bar....a triangulate type shackle mounted...

Is anybody run that type...I thing JD one look kind a weak...

this is what I am building...need a way to mount it to the truck though....
