Re: 2 Inch lift

I've only had one instance of it rubbing so far. I might have to do a little trimming on the front bumper but daily driving I don't have a problem. I don't take it wheeling...just my daily driver

thank you
If you search bds spring set ups you will find 2.5 for the front and 2" for the back.

Re: 2 Inch lift

I'm running a 265/50/20 without a lift and have zero rubbing. The tire you are wondering about is only .07" taller than mine.

Re: 2 Inch lift

My Commander is also wearing 265/70/17's with a 2" lift. I do have 1.5" spacers installed though.
