Rubbing?

When I turn hard right, I get a rubbing noise and can feel it in the steering wheel. It does not do it the other way...that i know of. Does anyone know what this is??

It's almost certainly your tires hitting something on your truck.. Mine only does it when I turn hard left...

Either way, it's not really a good thing, ecspecially if you have meaty tires. Go under there and figure out what it's hitting, then either fix it, or try and not turn your wheel as far.
