    Have you got a lift? Did it just start doing it recently? Or do you just need justification buying a bigger lift? /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    First I will say to fill out your profile. Second I will say break out the sawzall and cut the fenders till the tires fit /forums/images/icons/wink.gif . How much lift is on your truck now? Limiting your articulation is possible with extended bumpstops and limiting straps, but that isn't the best thing for offroad. If it isn't a problem on road and you don't go 'wheelin much, I would say to leave it alone. We need some more info on your setup /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif .
