As some of you might recall, I am in the process of lifting my truck mildly. First step was the gears (done now). Next step is a Skyjacker 2" lift. Last step is larger tires to go on a set of 2001 17" Off-Road rims. I was planning to run a 285/70/17. Now that I have the 4.11's, i'm pretty sure I could easily run a 305/70/17. Problem is, not sure if 2" lift is enough to run a 305/70/17 without rubbing.

Anyone tried running a 305/70/17 with only 2" of lift? Did it rub?
I think the Off-Road editions are lifted 2" Anyone run a 305/70/17 on an Off-Road edition? Did it rub?

Please, pics if you got 'em.

305's rubbed on my 2000 Off Road. Just slightly on the plastic inner fender at full lock, but they do rub and it would be much worse if you hit a bump.

Here is mine with stock 2".



Here is mine with a 2" coil spacer added. Plenty of room now, and no rubbing even while wheeling.

How`s the front sitting with the spacers? I have Daystars, and it`s about 1/2 - 3/4 inch higher in the front.

It is sitting level now, but with a small load of 300-400 lbs it is lower in the rear. I am going to put a 1" block in the rear or maybe a 1.5" AAL.
