I can post up pics if you want, but just if you look around at many of the 98+ Superlifted trucks on here and you'll get an idea of how it looks.

mike, you need to put your year and model in your signature, so we know what vehicle we are talking about

i think that has more to do with the size of your wheels weezl...but i could be wrong. there is a ranger in my area with 33" km2 with crank and shackle and he only rubs when flexed to the max like those pics. but he does not have the flares, dont know how much difference that makes?

i'm sure the flares make a big difference... but i still say 3" lift at least... the flares don't add an inch... just saying...

seriously, for both of you guys, put a 3" body lift on... it looks so much better, i actually think the frame sticking out the bottom looks good! there is very little frame showing stock...

what do you mean?

also, i know a guy who's got the identical truck to mine, minus the custom front end and paint, the wheels, and the shifter extension (he's got a 5 speed no extension) and he said he's never had an issue with it...

ive always heard people say if your dont run the extension the shifter hits the opening in the floor and it wont go in 1,3,5 gears? i didnt like driving my friends 94 b4000 with the 3" bodylift. the shift was really long
is your truck auto?

yea but you have all terrains which in reality are slightly smaller than a same sized mud terrain. For example a 31'' BFG a/t is not actually 31''but the 31'' KM's are exactly 31''

I have actually measured these figures myself on tires that are not mounted. My 32'' MTR's rub slightly on full steering lock

The offset and width of aftermarket wheels is why some trucks (the blue one) rub when trucks on stock wheels (the white one) do not.
