you might need to trim the lower corners of the valance..

i know i did when i had a stock front bumper, stock height and 33x12.5x15's

but maybe not, either way looks great!

Tyler thanks! I respect that much coming from you, i have been wondering for awhile how much that custom front bumper ran you? Ive been wanting to get one built for awhile now that's the original reason i took off the front valence so i could get a custom bumper / push bar

I have actually never thought of taking off the red "edge" stick. I might just do that

after tax and everything it cost me 600. the guy had my truck for about 5 days. we drew it up on autocadd first then he built it.

i know it can be done for way cheaper. but i went to probably one of the best fabricators in northern nevada lol

Wow, i was thinking somewhere around 1k for the custom bumper. I guess i was way off haha. If you got it for $600 and it was one of the best fab's around then i could probably get it down here in orange county for like $400. Thanks for the info i wanna get one built soon.

no prob man

from what i've seen 400 seems to be the average going price. and it would have been upwards to 1k if i went with a steel plate bumper instead of a tube bumper. but i just couldnt spend that much. lol

i dont think you'll need em honestly. im assuming your rims have around 4" of backspacing. and with a tire that narrow you shouldn't have a problem. its when you put wider tires like i have, and then the sidewall will rub the inner frame. i dunno, try em with and without and see what you think

My rims have very little backspacing if I remember correctly it was like -38. I could be wrong but I know it's not even near an inch. The tires I got get very close to the inner wheel well but don't rub even on full turn. I don't have the correct tools to put the spacers on so I would go to a shop which would be alot of money if I had to
Have them removed if they rub
